'89 Johnson Power Pack?

I have a 1989 200 HP, V6 Johnson.   Last time out starting the boat was a bear.  I ended up tolling for a couple of hours and coming home   Today - nothing.   Checked fuel and fuel delivery and it's fine.  Pulled the plugs, wet with gas - but fine.   Checked for spark - zip.   If I read the manual right I have 6 coils, so I'm guessing that's not the problem and assume it's the power pack.   Thoughts?

Thanks,
Jim

 

Jim,

Possibly the Stator as the motor has 2 power packs. The odds of both of them going is slim, but it happens. Have them checked by a reputable dealer.
