Before you pull the engine and have it torn apart to look it over may I suggest you try a couple of things first?
1. Disconnect all the fuel lines and use compressed air to clean them all out. Take the injectors to a shop and have them tested.
2. While the injectors are out put some very light oil in the injector holes and turn the engine over by about 20 times. Get as much of the oil the you've put in the holes out whatever way you can.
3. Make certain the injector pump is getting lubricated. If there is a place to hand lubricate it then fill it.
4. Make certain the engine oil is new and clean.
5. Reinstall the injectors and fuel lines.
6. Make certain the fuel you have is perfectly clean and that all filters are new.
7. Bleed the injectors and fuel lines and attempt to start it. Bleeding all air out of the system is essential. If there is air in a fuel line, that cylinder will not fire.
8. Do not spray anything into the intake like ether or WD 40. If after 5 tries and it doesn't start then bleed the system again. All air must be out of the system at the injectors. Try another 5 times.
Good luck!! JohnL - former 4-107 and Mariner 35 owner.
