1997 Polaris SLT 700 starting issues
Hello all. I have a strange issue. If both plug wires are attached to the spark plugs, the ski will not fire. I removed the back plug and attached a spark plug to it (checking for spark). The plug was laying on top of the engine when I cranked it and the jet ski started but was only running on one cylinder but the plug was sparking. I held the plug that was sparking to the plug still in the engine and the spark jumped to it and then it appeared to be running on both cylinders. So I thought I would try this: I wrapped a piece of wire around the back plug, attached the plug wire, and laid the other end of the wire on top of the block. Jet ski started and seemed to run fine. Could this be some kind of ground issue? Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
