    Hey there i have numerous issues with the motor. first i get a clicking sound when i try to turn it over. the starter will barely turn and fluid is coming out of it. boat ran fine a year ago, it's been sitting for 10 months. i'm gonna have the starter rebuilt, does anyone have any advice to getting this cranking after sitting for so long? i dont get any power to the yellow wire on the solenoid either. any help/advice would be awesome. thnx

    check battery,check connetions at battery,check all grounds,get old gas out of tank,change sparkplugs,if untreated gas was left in carbs you will have to clean them.change lower unit fluid.and should be ready to fire up.good luck
