Hello,Long time lurker, but I finally have the need to post! I have an 85 Mercury 115 HP inline 6 that is having an ignition problem. It wont start because I only have spark on 1 of the 6 cylinders when cranking. On ocassion it will fire up and once running, she will run rough for a while, then she will eventuall wake up and scream accross the water like nothing is wrong. Since it eventually runs very well, this leads me to believe it's not the switchboxes. Also, switching the place f the two switch boxes does not move the problem. I popped the flywheel and the stator looks almost new. So it's either the trigger or stator, I think. I know it sounds strange, but could the trigger or stator be failing on 5 out of the 6 cylinders only when cranking, or does it seem like an electrical problem? To be honest, I am not sure I even understand what the trigger does. Your help is much appreciated. I tried everything I could before posting. Thanks!
