Re: 540 wont start.

ok looked at the boat appears no power to the mags. Correct me if I am wrong but no voltage on the wire to the mags with the switches on is not good. I will check inside the control box next, the easer fix is welding the cage were a bar broke. seams like I am Destin to have to work in the dark.

That's why I post on hear things I did not think of. Is there a fuel drain screw incase water is in bowl I believe I have a ma6? not a 4-5.
I know if water gets in the bowl that that can stop it from starting.
