Stop treating it like it's a Ford and it might actually run.

COIL COIL COIL!

 Actually Its coil coil coil coil coil coil ! There are 6 of them  >:(.  But I dont think thats the problem, I think its the stator.  I have been back tracking the ignition from the coils , no power at the coils, no power at the switch boxes.  The switch boxes (as much as I can figure) are powered by the stator and take the signal from the crank triger thingy and up the voltage to power the coils, I think !  :-\

 The good thing is I am learning new things (stators, switchboxs, crank trigers, multi coils) and I havent shocked myself yet.  ::)

  I remembered last night that I know someone that works at a local OB shop  ::) so i called him today and he told me to LEAVE IT ALONE before I make it worse ( >:( No faith in my skills) .  He said to leave it with him and he would check it out in his spare time and let me know what the problem is.  ;D ;D

 Just as a side note .   
 I never thought of this before, but because a two smoke has a power stroke every time the piston comes to tdc and a 4 stroke is every other time this thing (3.4 L   V6) has as many power strokes at an equal rpm as a 4 stroke V 12

 And NOOO I'm not slipping away to the smokey side  >:(, just trying to get it to run so I can sell it (the motor not the boat).

 Well you wont believe this !!
 The old 300 hp 2 smoker started today  :o !! After lots of tinkering and cleaning all the conections, it fired-up (in a HUGE cloud of smoke!!), ran a little rough then cleared out and even idled.  It sounds like a pack of dirt bikes  :(  and filled my entire backyard with smoke  >:( , but it runs .

Hey guys did you notice we have an Outboard section now  :o . 
 I have alot of work to do before it goes anywhere !  One day it runs, the next day nothing   >:(.  But at least now I know it will run, so I dont mind spending a little money on it to make it reliable  ::).  As far as keeping it on the boat, I dont know yet  :-\ .   The problem is I found out this motor is like the 455 Olds of Outboards.  Not a performance motor, I was told to keep it below 5000 rpm or it will start throwing parts (rods, pieces of pistons, etc) at my head. But I am going to replace all the cables, make it run constistently, and give it a try  :-[ . That way if I do decide to sell the motor and convert it to a jet or V drive (like I want to) I can show people that the motor does run and work properly.
