OK back to this again. I have been doing allot of work on this boat. The last thing that I really need help with (at this point) is the motor isn't running like it should be. I have taken the carbs apart and cleaned them twice also I know that it is getting gas bc in four hours time I have gone through eight gallons. I do know that the motor isn't charging when I got it I just figured out what wires I needed to make it run and those are the ones that I hooked up. I have checked each wire that is coming off the motor and none of then seem to have a positive charge. (higher then the battery level) I was wondering if this could be possibly my power issue that I seem to be having or should I be looking some where different. One other thing is that the boat will have all kinds of power for about three seconds but then suddenly loose all power but will still run just not like it should. I have check all of the plug wires and every cylinder has spark though not very strong. The battery that I am using is a marine batter and I do charge it every time before I take it out and has never died on me. Please help.
