I have the 85 hp with no spark at 1 cylinder. I purchased a seloc (Online) manual and the tests for the power pack call for a "neon tester" to test the power pack and output coils.
I'm thinking the power pack after reading what you guys wrote... Can power packs be repaired? What are they really?
What is this?
Where can I get one? (An automotive shop? I have lots of auto testers, etc.
Is it a logic probe?
Can I substitute something for this "neon test light"?
A multi-meter for instance???
Please help
