help with 1992 70 hp. :sad: No manual for same to start with. I have a 1991 or 92 Force 3cyc. 70hp that has a problem. Several years back I had the hold lower unit rebuilt. It has always been a hard starter but as of late will not start at all. It tries to start for about 6-7 seconds then nothing. The starter is usually hot. I had it rebuilt professionally and reinstalled it. I checked the plugs and wires and found them good, as well as the fuse. I put water to it and a fresh charged battery that was new. Itried to start it and again it tried hard for 6-7 seconds and then nothing. A second try and the same results. I could not touch the starter at all it was that hot. It was running great up to this point when on the water. Hard starting, but it started everytime. Is it possible that it jumped timing ? I can't think of anything else. I have most of the work done professionally as I don't mess with things I don't know. Is there any help out there without having to take it back to the shop as fishing is starting here in about 2 weeks. HELP !!
