Looking for A4 Mechanic in MA, Weymouth area


I'm in desperate need of an A4 mechanic in the Weymouth area. I just don't have time to work on it. The Boat is in Bert's and I need to launch on the 18th May. It wouldn't start at the end of last season, I think it is points as I checked fuel side of things. I just need to get running.

Give it a shot of starting ether and try starting it. If it roars for a few seconds you have a fuel issue. If not, you're missing spark.

I hate using ether, but this is the quickest fuel system test. I agree with Al. It is called motor crack for a reason.. (just don't use it all the is more of a diagnostic tool.)
