    I bought a 1979 Evinrude 35hp, 35902A. It ran great for the first couple weeks, then I was out and running it and it just flat died. Couldn’t get it going on the water, took it home, and I have no spark in either cylinder. I’m about to take the gamble and order the Power Pack Assy, part 0581927 for $97 and hope that’ll get it running again so I don’t have to pay for shop labor/wait for it to get done, as I need it running ASAP for the upcoming trapping season. Any other suggestions? Should I be getting any other parts in conjunction with it?

    I have a 95 Johnson 30 I was getting no spark from either. It wasn’t until a while later I realized the kill button broke, and was pushed in a bit farther than normal. I grabbed it with a needle nose and pulled it out and it was all good. I know this probably isn’t a common cause of not having spark, but it never crossed my mind until I was already frustrated.
