Great to find this forum. I hope that I can add value in the future, but for now, I need help with a starting problem.
I have a 1999 Mercruiser 7.4 380 Horizon engine with sometimes starting issue. When I hit the ignition switch on the dash, I can hear the fuel pump energize and I can hear some type of solenoid click. Sometime the engine will immediately come to life. Sometimes I need to hit the switch several times before it catches. When it does catch, the engine fires up immediately. The problem is that it is taking more and more tries to get it to fire. At some point this is going to be a major problem if I don't figure it out.
Any help that anyone can give will be greatly appreciated.
This engine is in a Sea Ray 380. The port engine will once in a great while not hit on the first try.
