I have a 93 johnson VJ50TLETB, its a two cylinder. The other day i took it out and it ran fine, went to put it back on the trailer the next day and it almost started twice, but then lost spark, I know its getting fuel (wet plugs) I tested all the ignition components except the power pack, as I cant crank the motor from ten feet away and read the voltimeter, I need a set of clips. I think I did it right but I cant get a voltage reading from the timer base when cranking it, it's supposed to be at .5volts, I get absolutly nothing when i crank it. The ohm test on the stator was in range, but the ohm test on the timer base was way high, its supposed to be 15ohms +/- 2 for the 12 volt system, Mine is reading upwards of 26 ohms. Its a CDI timer base and I've had headaches with that company before selling crap components, I dont think I'll be able to get a power pack reading if the timer base is the prob. I have the factory shop manual, but it only mentions about the parts 'being in range' is a high 'out of range' ohm reading indicative of a bad part? I'm concerned that I didn't get a good grounding on the volt test, but if the high ohm range explains it then I wouldn't be so worried that I got it wrong. Does anyone have any worthwhile advice?
