Honda 20i (Honda 2000) - New Carb and Ignition Control Module and will not start


Hoping some suggestions from the forum. Our Honda 2000 (Actually a Honda 20i bought in Mexico) has worked so reliably in our several years of full time cruising. It did about 20,000 nm secured on the aft deck in its custom cover with no problems until ... I did not tie it down as securely as normal and it got knocked over and took a few waves between the Marshall Is and Tikopia.

I followed the troubleshooting in the repair manual and based on that replaced the Ignition Control Module (after waiting a month for the parts). Since the carb was a mess and I was already paying a fortune in shipping I also bought a new carb.

So now it has a new carb, new ignition control module, new spark plug, newish fuel and it will still not start.

There is a spark and fuel is getting to the combustion chamber.

I have also tried starting it with the throttle put manually in different positions.

Any ideas ?

Could it be an issue with the valves ?

I had to reuse the carb gaskets as I ordered or was sent the wrong ones. Could that be the problem ? Not a lot of space to use sealant.

I am so frustrated I would take it to a shop if there was one here in Port Vila.
