It appears to me from the video that #1 exhaust is not closing fully and, if I recall your very first post correctly, that was the cylinder with zero compression.

good news!

good pressure test tells you that the lack of compression is not due to a cracked head or cylinder block. It also tells you that the exhaust manifold is ok.

I think I would be looking, as has...

concern

Hi,

If you leave that jumper from the battery to the coil on all the time, I would be concerned that you would burn out the coil.

Hi,

I would suggest it is time to get a volt meter out.

Turn on the ignition and measure the voltage between the coil + and ground.

Do not leave ignition turned on for a long time.

Bill,

Was this the first trip you had with a lot of waves and subsequent pitching and rolling?

If so, it might have been sufficient to stir up KRAP from the bottom of the fuel tank.

I too was concerned about the five minutes of ignition on with no engine running. This is a very good way to ruin a coil.

If you wish to run the pump after shutting down, it would be advisable to...
