I have a 1990 40 horse Johnson inboard motor on my 16 ft. pontoon boat.
It worked great all summer during the heatwave we had, but come the rain one weekend later, it coughed, choked, sputtered and died, and then it wouldn't even turn over. There is power going up to the selonoid but it won't turn over. Battery is fully charged. I tried changing the fuse to the starter as this is what I was told may be wrong with it, but still nothing. Any suggestions?? Thanks.
