I’ve had a few teething issues.
1. That motor has two separate sets of points for 3 cylinders each. I’ve had an issue with one set not working. After checking everything with a multimeter I eventually figured it is a resistor that looked fine from the outside but due to corrosion did not allow current to pass through. I tried to clean the contacts but it seemed to glow too hot so I’ve found one on ebay and am waiting for it to arrive.
2. I have also had two bad spark plug wires that I have fixed already.
3. One of my three carburetors was overflowing which after taking it apart had a slight misalignment of the inlet needle valve
I’m going to go through the entire timing and setup again and maybe I will have it running properly this weekend.
Alright, I am done with the electrical and panel installation. Running electrical in a nice way and not showing too many wires was a challenge. Next is getting the boat on the trailer and mounting the motor. Exciting!

It will be close Marc. Hopefully I can get it all setup and working right before Saturday. If not, I can always just bring it to show you guys and ride with one of you. It would be a pity though because someone needs to be faster than you!
