Can anyone tell me the ignition sequence for this motor?
I have only taken this boat out once, just bought it. It was running rough on the lake so when I got home and tried to start it to see what was up, it would not engage.
I don't have a lot of experience with marine engines...is it supposed to be in neutral when you test? I started by testing the solenoid--I bypassed it and the motor cranked, so I replaced the solenoid, but that did not solve the problem (it still won't crank.) I tested the wire to the top of the solenoid and it is always 12 v hot--whether the key is on or not...is that supposed to be? If so, then how do you test the ignition switch (which would be my next guess? ) If it is not supposed to be hot, what could be the problem? Is there another solenoid or other part in the sequence?
The model is J50BELCIG. Thanks for any advice.

The big post will be hot all the time. The little post (I) get Cool s power when the ignition switch is in start position.
