  • BF90AT 1997 won't stay started

    I have a 1997 90hp that I can't keep started. Carbs have just been rebuilt. I can get it to crank and give it gas, but when I back off to idle it stalls. I was told there was spark in 2&3 and no spark in 1&4. First, would that cause it to not keep idling, and Second, does anybody know what part that is, there are two parts for the coil, one seems to be shorter than the other, I am not at the boat to look.

    Thanks,
    Tim

    If I wasn't clear, I was told one coil sparks 2&3 and the other 1&4 but nowhere in the parts diagram does it say which one they are and there is a $20 diff in price, not so much concerned about that, but getting the right part. One is shorter than the other and that is the only diff I see from the diagram.

      Just looked at mine- 1&4 coil is the top one with shorter wires than the lower one.

      Good Luck
