Re: mystery motor problem

Was reading another forum this morning about what another fix was-the main engine wire harness connection under the hood-might be corroded and pins not connecting so will start there. :roll:sure hope I don't have that problem on the 2013 Yamaha 9.9 sitting on "Chug-a-Lug" :D
