Hi everyone my name is Chris and Im new to the site.
I just bought a 17ft boat with a 1973 85hp johnson javelin outboard on it.
My issue is that she is not getting any spark to any of the 4 plugs. I have done a lil research on here before posting. I read that there are kill switches and lanyard switches and so on but I dont know if she has these. There is a lil metal nipple on the remote could that be for a lanyard?? Also is there sopposed to be any buzzer noise when i turn the key to the run position? If so is there a way to bypass all these kill switches to see if she will get spark before I go spending tons of money replacing ignition parts.
Also she turns over with plenty of compression and power but wont start/run do to no spark.
I appreciate any and all advice and thank you in advance.
