86 MC problem

The problem seems to be when I've ran the boat for a hour and then shut it off, it won't start. Most of the time I can place a screw driver between the concetions on the resister, and it will refire. Just replaced the resister, rotor, dis-cap, plugs, wires. Help?

I had an old CC that had moisture in the distributer. After an hour it would begin to condensate on the cap and the boat would not restart. The condensation was visable inside the cap. After a quick wipedown the boat would restart and run for awhile more. I used compressed air to clear it out but as I remember it took a couple treatments.

Get rid of that mess and get electronic ignition 99$ and 30 minutes to install.

Ditto on the electronic ignition - call SkiDim and order one - and if your not sure of the install they will talk you through it.

If you're talking about putting a screw driver between the connections on the ballast resistor sounds to me like you need the jumper wire. The jumper wire hooks to the coil side of your ballast resistor and to the "I" terminal on your starter solenoid. The "I" terminal on your solenoid has full battery voltage only when the key is in the start position. So, if you have the jumper wire in place properly, you'll have full battery voltage at the coil side of your resistor when you have the key in the start position. Same as when you use the screw driver, but in the way the manufacturer meant for it to happen.

However, you should consider electronic ignition...its worth it. Though, you are still supposed to have the jumper wire with the electronic setup too.

I drew Picture of the setup...but it seems to be too large...is there a way to reduce the size (in bytes, not pixels) so I can post it here?
