I am new to this forum so please bear with me till I get the swing of things! I amthe recent owner of a 1998 115 Hp FICHT motor trying to find a diagnostic kit. All the kits on line state they are for 1999 and newer engines? So could someone explain what the difference would be between a 98 and 99 FICHT? Thank you in advance for any help.
If the last three digits of the model number are SSR or SSH, it would be a 2000 model
