Hi Folks, I have a 1995 yamaha hp. two-stroke outboard
on my dinghy
. It's been running funky so I ran a couple of tanks
with seafoam hoping this would clear it up, it didn't. It continued to run worse and finally quit. I took the carb apart and cleaned it; reassembled and still does not run long if at all. I checked the spark plugs, the lower cylinder looks like it isn't firing at all, plug
looked brand new. I put an automotive in-line spark tester on the coil to plug
wire for both cylinders and they both 'light' up. But if I omit the test light and pull the plug and ground the spark looks very weak to me. So I did a little reading and found that you can test the resistance of the coil windings. However, it appears that you need to know what the OHM reading should be for the particular engine
. So finally here's the question: DOES ANYONE KNOW WHAT THE OHM READINGS SHOULD BE FOR THIS MOTOR
?( I can't find the darn manual). Any other trouble suggestions, would also be welcome.
