my electic start on my 1982 johnson 9.9 does not start. i used my continuity tester on the leads and the switch assembly ,they seem fine. it starts with the rope, but not the electric. how can i test the starter to see if that is the problem? not experienced in motors, so if is simple i should be able to handle it. or could there be more of a problem than the starter. according to a manual i have there are only 2 bolts that hold it in and the positive cable connection on the bottom. do i have to remove the fly wheel. it looks tight taking the bolts out. if i take it out should i get power from the positive cable on the bottom? or can i somehow test the starter? any thoughts or experience on this problem will help. hate to take it somewhere and get charged alot for maybe something simple. please help if you can. thanks.
