Recent intermittent fire/no fire problems with my 1993 40 hp Evinrude. Day to day there would be fire and run ok.  Next day no fire.  Now it seems whatever the problem was, it has completely failed because there has been no fire for days.  I suspect the powerpack but wondered if there were some basic diagnostic tests for stator, timer, powerpack, voltage regulator, etc.  I have already eliminated kill wire and coil as possible causes.  Need help, hunting season is almost over, know where big buck is, need boat to get there!!!

Hello I believe the problem is the pack and would try tapping on pack while checking spark. the stator and timer base can be tested with ohm meter to verify OK
