    ??? ??? Can't pretend to know much about them, but I thought they only made diesels and not outboards. But you have it and I reckon you know what you see. Will ask a mate and get back with something constructive if I can.

    Pop,primary voltage coming from stator(under flywheel) should be 160-180 volts.Output from cdi unit should be the same,except will be rectified to DC current.Trigger pulser voltages are minimum .3 volt-5 volts. If your stator and trigger voltages are within spec,and your cdi output is satisfactory,you will have a dud secondary coil

    have got a 550 Penta collecting dust in the garage. Wouldn't belive it lost the small bearing out of the carby a whlie back and haven't been able to find the correct size to replace it. Until then it actually went pretty well and was used as a trollong motor for a couple of years. If it helps your'e welcome to it.
    Happy for you to email if you like.

    cheers Gibbo
