    First, buy a manual.

    Second: replacing parts willy-nilly won't get you going. Oh, you will get going eventually but you will waste time and money in the process.

    Unless you know for certain that the original stator is bad, put it back in.

    NOW start the logical thought process:

    Is there no spark at all? If so: When the TV does not go on, before you call the repairman, check to be certain it is plugged in.

    SO: with no spark at all, check the man overboard switch to be certain it is open and not in the emergency stop position.

    Check the ignition switch to be certain it is functioning. Since the white and blue wires are the stop circuit, remove them from the terminals and insulate. Crank the engine. Spark now? Aha! The problem is not with the electronics. No spark at all? Electronics are bad--Very highly unlikely since either both windings on the stator or both CD boxes or all four coils would need to be bad. Too much coincidence there.

    Check to be certain that the ground wire from the electronics mounting plate to the block is present and functioning.
