I had no luck with DB electrical starters. The first one I got from them for my 140hp Mercruiser blew the gears out within 2 weeks, they sent a replacement and within 4 months the new one went out too. They were both Chinese made and not worth the time and effort to try a third one. I went back to the original OEM starter and haven't had a problem since.

Thanks for the input. I never tried a starter from there and it's good to hear from someone who has. I did buy a new Delco alternator from them a few years back. The original alternator on my 140 Mercruiser was a Mando and it was Korean made. I could have had it rebuilt for $150 (parts expensive) or buy the new compatible Delco for around $70.

Spark, Fuel, Compression. From what you tried it's probably something to do with ignition. Wires, Coil, Spark, Plugs, points, rotor, cap, etc. Did you check for spark?
