I'm about to buy a 1973 6 hp Evinrude tomorrow, model 6302

The motor starts and runs fine while in the barrel. However, I'm told that under power while on the boat, it will run on both cylinders then one cylinder then the other then both again. Someone has told the current owner that it probably needs the coils replaced. What does it sound like to you experts?
