I have a 1999 Tracker 75 hp engine on my Pro Team 185.
It's always run great but for some weird reason this weekend when I brought it out. I tried to start it and it started but died on me. I tried again it started briefly. I tried to give it a little throttle next time I started it to hopefully keep it ideling. But it would never start. Nothing, not even a putt. It turns over good but no ignition. I checked my plugs which looked a little wet so I though I had flooded it. dried the plugs out and waited for awhile, tried again but nothing. Checked to make sure had gas going to carb and that looked good as did spark going to all 3 spark plugs. Run switch is of course in the on position. Is there anything anyone could recommend before I bring this to my local shop and have to leave it for a month! Thanks for any and all help.
