92 EVINRUDE 88 HORSE NO SPARK

Have tested wires and I have juice to the blue coil wire just dead at the coils. Have no spark out of all 4 coils. Is it possible that all 4 crapped to bed at the same time

A better description is needed. Juice to blue wire? Do you mean output from power pack?

 

That should be 2-300 volts. That's probably where your problem is. Unlikely to have 4 coils failing at the same time.

 

Ignition system consists of stator, timer base, power pack, coils and plugs. Not having proper spark from all 4 coils is likely to be a faulty  power pack or timer base or stator. Test in that order.

 

Unlikely to be the stop circuit (Black w. white stripe wire) if you have "juice" at coils. The "juice" may just not be strong enough to fire coils.

How did you measure the "juice" and what type of readings did you get?  If you did not use a DVA meter or adapter, the results are useless.

 

A DVA is needed for almost every CDI part output testing and an ohmmeter for resistance readings of coils, continuity, and other components.

The factory service manuals can be obtained through the Ken Cook Co. outboardbooks.com
