    installed a new carb about 3 yrs ago...

    runs well - when it runs..which is not always..

    1. often the #4 plug [trans end of the engine] does not fire..usually if i fool around enough and replace the plug ..and/or the wire...i can get it to go.. : )

    recently noticed that if i pull the wire and then lay it loosely on the plug..i can see a gap between the wire and the plug and then it fires..so i am wondering why...

    do i have to do a complete tuneup? or maybe it's just the cap and/or rotor?

    pls let me know, as i'm not getting any younger, and i remember last time i did condenser, points, etc. it was a real pain..i'm only using the motor 50-100 hrs / summer [year], and mostly for in and out of the harbor..no long cruises..

    there are more questions but i'm over the limit -- so let's solve this one and then i can post more

    Sorry, I can't help you with that - I'm not familiar with that engine or anything about it. I would suggest, however, that you're going to have a hell of a time trying to make a short shaft outboard work on a sailboat. You really are going to want a long shaft. And I wonder whether that's even enough engine to safely power the boat in a situation where you need to move it quickly.
