Hi. I have a 77 wellcraft nova 210, it was running fine, then the starter went out. I put a brand new marine starter on it, now it wont fire. it turns over, just wont crank. its getting fuel, and spark???? I took it to a marine mechanic and he said the starter was weak because it was turning over slow, so he put another brand new starter, still not firing.. so then he said that something in the engine or outdrive was tight, and not allowing engine to turn fast enough to start. Now, I told the guy after having my boat for two months that he could kiss my *** and to give me my boat. ended up paying him$40. So... whats the problem here? boat running fine, put new starter, now guy tells me the engine is bad?? I did notice that the distributer cap is loose, u can shake it around. and the connecter on the inside of distributer cap at the top center appears to be broken off. with all that being said, where do I start?? Thanks.
