  • 90hp force won't start

    Good Evening,

    I acquire a 1990 Bayliner Capri 90hp Force from a friend and cannot get it to start. I replaced the plugs, wires, and coils. I also had the carbs rebuilt. The boat wants to start but as it wants to start the starter disengages. Any thoughts? TIA

    How about have your friend/seller show you the trick ?
    Every one of these motors seems to have its own particular starting foibles.

    Starting procedure is everything.

    I hope you did not use high resistance automotive plug wires.

      If it kicks out as soon as it fires: check the battery/ load test, hygrometer?
      Rebuild or clean the starter.

      Compression test?
      Spark test each cyl.?


      Buy American made Cars and Trucks!!!Towing insurance for a boat,a GREAT thing.
      ​Tools to make my life easier: Battery tester, die grinder, temp.gun, compression tester, DVA meter.

        Check the items that Jerryjerry suggested (sounds like a weak battery and or tired Starter)

        Why would you be changing coils already? they may not work because of other reasons then; not being good.

        check out the link and find your motor/ignition system (presotlite or merc.) and follow these instruction carefully
        This will help you diagnose the faulty components
