I bought this boat for$ 200 . It sat outside for at least 8 years . I tried to start it and at first when i turned key on fuel pump would run for 5 sec. Then when i cranked it i had spark however i ended up having to take all fuel pumps out and replace with new also cleaned gummed up float ect . Also if i put a bit of gas down intake it would fire up but not run . Cause of the fuel pump problem . I got ecited cause i knew it would run after i fixed fuel problem . YA RIGHT once i put all back together for the first few times i turned key on to prime bowls and lines it would run for 5 sec and click when key was switched off .Then all of a sudden it stopped doing anything when key was turned except it would crank . No pump sound no clicking when turned off . So i replaced ignition switch and same thing notta .excep t if i leave key on after a min or so buzzer comes on and fuel pumps start running for about 2 min then stop and start up again with no spark when i crank . Then if i turn key off while pumps are running they stay on for 30 sec or so but no spark now . Any help on what it might be would be so helpful i have spent hours replacing all interior and wet sanding ect cause i fugured after i got fuel pumps replaced it would fire up .now im loosing interest and patience . HELP

Ok i looked at lanyard switch and it is the same thing with switch in or out . When key is turned on no 5 sec fuel pump and no beeps. Also no spark . I get gauges and crank . Then after about a min or two if i leave key on . I get a constant tone and fuel pumps come on for about 11/2 min then stop and come on again .it cranks but no spark .

Hmm, were the fuel pumps identical to the originals? Maybe there's a blown fuse since it was fine the 1st couple attempts then operation changed?

I'll re-read the above and get back to you after some thought. Basically though aside from the jet pump, this is essentially identical to an outboard Mercury.

Yes fuel pumps are identical and i checked all fuses . Its the wierdest thing like i said before i changed fuel pumps . I would turn key on and lift pump would come on for a few seconds then turn off and it had spark when turned over . But it was not getting any fuel cause float was gummed up and other two fuel pumps were also . So i replaced them and unclogged float . Then got exited lol thinking now it would start . Turned key on and off a few times to prime every thing and then lost 5 sec on off and spark . If i leave key on after a min or so the beeper comes ( continuous tone ) on and pumps start running for about 2 min . Then shut off and repeat . But no spark .

I have a possible reason but need conformation .
I noticed in service manual . That it said to prime fuel . Turn key on . Is it possible it is stuck in prime mode?

The ignition disable or "Stop Circuit" is the black with yellow stripe wire on the two ignition switch boxes (Item 20 and 21 of drawing) Sportjet Warning Module 3.jpg . If this wire is pulled to ground, the ignition system is disabled. Disconnect at motor or measure using ohmeter to isolate if something at the helm such as shifter, ignition switch or lanyard switch is grounding this wire. If you disconnect this wire at the motor and spin it over using the starter, the coils should fire the plugs.

Also if you have a fuel pressure tester gauge, you can check the fuel pressure. But need to find reason for no spark on all cylinders so if this black wire with yellow stripe is connected to ground somewhere at the helm or anywhere in the harness, the ignition will be disabled.

If your spark doesn't return with this wire disconnected, check all 6 cylinders for spark. We'll work from there. I'm using the outboard manual as reference, there may be slight differences so look for anything that doesn't fit my description and let me know.
