Just bought a 1997 75 hp force outboard. Mounted it myself and testing it on the water. Runs great but has a problem when starting. It cranks 3 times when I start it and then stops cranking. I have to keep doing this multiple times before the engine actually starts, whereas it should just keep cranking until the engine starts. Was wondering what could be the problem? Something wired up wrong in the ignition, a kill switch I'm unfamiliar with, or maybe a bad starter? Any help would be appreciated.
