OK, I've got a GT-40 giving me a little bit of trouble. Here's whats happening.....
The last bunch of times out I've had a no start upon the first start of the day. But it happens on the first few attempts only, and then would cause no problems for the rest of the day. Suspecting the safety lanyard and/or neutral safety switch, I would wiggle the throttle back and forth, and shake the safety around until it started. After this, we were good for the rest of the day. Its always the same the next time the boat goes in the water though, and is taking more attempts to start.
So I have now replaced the neutral safety switch, and have jumped the 2 safety wires together, and still have the same problem. I'm not sure how to troubleshoot from here.
-my batteries are new and connections are clean and tight
-there is no corrosion on the starting solenoid.
-neutral safety switch replaced.
-lanyard bypassed.
-the fuel pump clicks and primes when i turn the key to the first position.

any ideas where to go from here? I'm suspecting the starter but don't know how to confirm.
