    Correct, the spark plugs should be brown or even black. White means it's lean. Don't use a paper fuel filter.

    I haven't looked on Ebay, but that sounds like a plan. I didn't want water leaking into the hull, but it shouldn't be hard to seal.

    WD-40 is garbage. It will dry out and get sticky. Suggest you clean it with solvent and use a lubricant, not a Water Dispersant.

    They are, indeed, different. I had a '98 and a '99 and wanted to swap parts to do some troubleshooting, but couldn't. Harness connectors are different, ignitor connectors are different, etc.

    So when you had the fuel pump out, did you clean ALL the crud out of the tank? I would assume that when you replaced the pump you also replaced the filter sock, right?

    Sounds like the reverse gate is hanging down a little too far. Try adjusting it up slightly and see if that helps.
