Johnson 85 starter engaged but no spark on any cylinders. Was testing with test light for power to circuit and shorted number two post on accident. Now it won't engage starter completely dead. Jump starter solenoid and starter engages. Does anyone have ideas? Please help.
You probably blew the small 20 amp fuse in the engine wiring harness. Easy to replace, but the fuse is pretty unique-it's a glass fuse and much smaller than normal automotive glass fuses. The fuse hides inside a rubber boot (a bulge in the wiring harness) located close to the starter solenoid. You may have to check a factory parts list to see what the fuse holder looks like and where it is located: epc.brp.com
