    Anybody have any idea why a trigger on a 95' force 70hp would go out 6 months later??? Replaced it last year & now it's out again, it took the spark from the same coil out again:angry: The only thing I found out of the ordinary was the 3rd spark plug gap closed shut?? Could this have anything to do with it?It ran fine till last weekend, I don't have spark on the middle coil again, and thatt's what it is again. I had a spare off of a 96' model, but it is different....Also If anybody needs parts for a 96' 75 hp I have just about everything for it...I'm looking into another motor so I can take this one off, but hope it makes another season....

    I read some where that the coil will back feed and burn the trigger out but can't attest to that. That is the reason that I don't do force engines. They were and are the poorest design on an engine that I have found. The fitch made by OMC stands right beside it.
