SOURCE: need Wiring Schematic/Diagram for 89 Astro GT16 boat

In all honesty, its probably impossible to get the original wiring diagram. Also, I would be willing to bet that there has been alot of re-wiring and changes made to the wiring and electrical system of the boat. If you describe exactly what your trying to do, install fix or re-wire I may be able to better assist

I HAVE A 1978 EVENRUDE 35 HP NO FIRE TO THE PLUGS GREAT COMPRESSION???


evinrude 1978 -1979 have a capacity discharge ignition unit as the control for the spark system
it runs wires to an ignition coil
so I would be suspicious of that unit
check all connections for corrosion and bad connections
I typed in electrical schematics for 1978 evinrude out board engine and found a site --www.maxrules.com which in the list of schematics has 55hp 1977-1978
press on that and you get a schematics of the wiring diagram evinrude 1978-1979 55hp
now I am aware that you state that yours is 35 hp but if it has 2 cylinders then it is a fair bet that the wiring diagram will be the same
any way there are plenty of other sites that may be of benefit

Good Morning,
From Your Diagnostics Yes It Could Be A Coil Or Coil Driver.
You Need To Check With Mercury as Some Coils Have Been Superceeded And If Thyey Go Faulty Then The Whole Set 6 Coils Should Be Replaced To Avoid ECU Damage.

I have a 1978 starcraft boat with a 470 mercruser in it or a 170 or 180 ford engine we have spark to the coil but not to the distribtor what is the point setting or what are we doing wrong


I am a bit reluctant to jump on this one as you have spark at the coil and not to the distributor. If you have spark at the coil... the points are working. It I don't want to sound like a wise arse here but it would appear the coil wire from coil to the distributor itself is bad.

However.... there could be other problems like a missing rotor in the distributor... or the carbon and spring have fallen out of the distributor cap internal center post.

The above seems to be the only thing that makes sense at the moment. Like I said the points have to be working to have spark at the coil.

Dwell should be 29 - 31 and the timing 8 - 10. I know at the moment it is impossible to check either.
You can set the point gap at .020 to start... then adjust dwell once you have figured out where the missing spark is.

Respond if you need more help but refrain from rating this post until we figure out what is causing your problem and have cured the no spark issue.

My boat Merc Cruiser V8 4brl, Thunderbolt IV 1978. Won't run well or idle, it back fires stutters and dies. This happens after it worms up. I rebuilt carb, cleaned out the old fuel, new fuel tank, Runs...


you need to replace your coil it is only about 15.00 it doe not sound like a fuel problem if the coil doesnt work you need to look at your cdi if you have the outdated box it will be mounted on the distributor it about a 1/4 inch thick 3 inches long and 2 inches wide with one flat plug going in it. before you do that change your plugsand wires wait im sorry i just saw the year of the boat now were getting somewhere you have a bad codenser if your boat has points under the distributor cap the condeser is the little siver cylinder while your in there you should just get a kit cap,rotor, button,points and condesor the points should be set at 25 to35 thousands i asume that 1978 is theyear modle if not like i said the new cdi box is out of date and very expensive $498.00 to be excact i would do a good tune up before turning to that but if it is a 1978 the distributor tune will fix your problem kit is about 70.00
