Question about 1986 Chevrolet K1500
Alpha One is the out drive, what engine do you have? Remove the distributor cap and verify if your ignition is electronic or contact points. Either way, I recommend going with a Pertronix electronic ignition. This module is a simple drop in installation and will eliminate a major portion of your troubleshooting. Pertronix also has a high output coil to accompany their ignition, I recommend you install both as a set.
FYI, water in the cylinders is not good. Especially if it sat for 5-6 years rusting the rings and cylinder walls. Was this boat running when it was parked and do you know the history?
