  • late 80s model beachcraft 170 been sitting for two years

    i'm an outboard guy, know nothing about i/os, this boats been sitting for two years, its got a four-cylinder OMC.. engine cranks, but won't start of course... where do i start? plugs, wires, cap n rotor? anything but the dreaded possibility of having to re-build gummed-up carb/s... any suggestions on getting this thing running without taking it in the shorts with cost? any help is greatly appreciated....

    I have a little experience with starting issues with mine. I would reccomend your first step to be buy the manual. back then, they made good ones and they put troubleshooting guides in them. I know because that is the most used section of my manul. they show you how to check your points and/or condensor and your whole starting circut.
