    Default Slow starting, check your cap and Rotor

    On my 13 Mojo it has what I call Auto Start.

    I turn the key let it go and the boat cranks until it starts.

    Lately it's been cranking up to 5-8 seconds.

    I only have 300hrs but went ahead bought a new cap and rotor for the tune up. Turns out SC or Indmar didn't tighten my cap completely. I noticed it was slightly loose fitting.

    When I removed I I know why I had starting delays. Everything was wet, corrosion had set in. All the terminals and rotor.

    Changed them boat fires up in 1-2 seconds

    Just goes to show regular maintenance does pay off.

    That's exactly how mine looked.

    Might think about plug wires too then. Because mine were needed at the same time as my cap/rotor. I have to imagine that sitting on the water all the time makes for a wetter environment for your engine components and might accelerate corrosion over being tucked away in your warm, dry PNW garage.

    True true when I inspected the cables no corrosion. I am hoping they last another season. If I have anymore problems those and plugs are next
