Back to the OP... Why are you putting a boat with rotted bellows in the water in the first place?

also, I remembered that the plugs were the ones installed when I got the boat. The were covered in carbon and all gapped wrong...

Yep all that would equal poor spark

I am new at owning a boat and rely heavily on the advice I get. That advice from a friend was "everything else looked good and the exhaust bellows wouldn't hurt anything.."

Well, I was able to replace the exhaust bellows without removing the lower unit. (wont try that again)

SOOOOO... This week I will have replaced:

all old spark plugs
severely corroded ignition coil and cable
broken exhaust shutters
torn exhaust bellows
manifold riser gaskets

Going to try to test it on Sat. if all parts get put it!

Well, still no good...

Put it in the water and it started right up, took it for a spin. Came back to the dock sat for about 10 min and it started up just fine!
The next day we went out to the island and all was good. Went to leave and the engine just turned over(no start). After fooling with it for a bit, it started and ran. I put it in gear and the engine died! After trying for a while again (by now with some friendly passer by) he held the shutter down on the carburetor and it started.

When we got back to the dock, I put the boat in reverse and that killed it again!

I am dumbfounded and frustrated!

Could this be a fuel issue? ugh!

I would think it must be a fuel issue at this point. You seem to have addressed any ignition issue.

I would lean toward a fuel pump if the issue happened under load....but there isn't much load starting.

Have you changed/cleaned all the fuel filters?

What kind of "fooling with it" were you doing and what is a "shutter"? Are you saying you have to manually choke the carb to get it started?

I suspect Cuzins101 is referring the butterfly valve on the carb. Choking it should 'close' the valve. Hence 'choking' off the air supply. In this case it is described as 'Held the shutter down' which to me sounds like 'choking' the engine.

Later the engine is running fine until you put it into gear, then it stalls. To me this sounds like possibly two problems:

1) Automatic choke is not working properly. It shoudl automatically choke when necessary.

2) Shift Interrupt is not adjusted properly. The shift interrupt should automatically stall the engine for a split second as you move the shifter from neutral to in-gear (FWD or REVERSE). It should then stop the interupt. The entire thing happens in a plit second and the momentum of the engine essentially 'jump-starts' itself again. IF the interrupt is too long, the engine will stall. This can also occur if your 'Lily-shifting' it into and out of gear. I believe (and hope to be corrected if so) that an improperly adjusted shift cable can do this as well.

It MIGHT be the same problem with the choke in both cases, however i would be looking at these two things specifically.

Shrew- Yes, he manually held down the butterfly valve on the carb. I guess, I'll start with the carb and move on to the shift interrupt from there...
