    I am not getting any spark to either cylinder. I was thinking becasue neither cylinder was getting spark that it would not be the coils since each cylinder has its own I wouldn't think both would go at the same time. My next guess would be the stator or switchbox. Is there any way to test these or does anybody have any other ideas. The last time on the water it would not start two times while I cranked it for 5 minutes or so it finally kicked in. Once it was started no problem. At the end of the day it would not start even after cranking for a long time. Got it home and found it had no spark. The motor has always started on the first try. Thanks, DAVE
