I successfully managed to drop my 1999 3.3hp tender outboard
in the drink recently...I got it home in 30mins and did a full rinse thru everything. She fired up no problemo. I then used it a two weekends back and she ran OK...started etc.
She failed to start today after two weeks of laying idle...and on close inspection
i noticed that water
ingress could occur deep into the CDI
unit...would this then have cause corrosion
from the salt water
swim?...with the unit just giving up the ghost?...I cleaned all connections today...little emery paper to make sure they were good...across several terminals, checked that shut off switch was not faulty yet, when I popped the brand new plug
and got it to ground she showed me that there was no spark...
