HELP PLEASE! 2000 Ficht 225 wont start

[ Edited ]

I have a 2000 Ficht 225 that stopped running last summer.  Dealer told me it was the ECU.  I got a new ECU and the dealer installed it and says the motor still wont start.  He said it tests ok, has fuel, spark, oil and compression.  motor cranks but wont fire.  Suggesting a new motor at this point.  Any thoughts on this?  Any other ideas on what it could be?  Timing, crack position sensor?  Anything?

Is this an authorized Evinrude dealer with a factory trained technician? 

Troubleshooting is a step by step series of procedures outlined in the factory service manual. Not only that but the tech can take advantage of Evinrude's dealer support team dedicated to helping with hard to diagnose engines.

The factory recommends that a properly trained technician service your Johnson or Evinrude outboard motor. Should you elect to perform repairs yourself, use caution, common sense, and observe safety procedures in the vicinity of flammable liquids, around moving parts, near high-temperature components, and working with electrical or ignition systems.

Always use the proper service manual for your motor, up-to-date service literature, the correct tools, and have an understanding of how to proceed with troubleshooting and repair methods. If you are unsure or uncomfortable with a procedure, a situation, or a technique, enlist the services of a factory trained technician.

Yes it is. They are platinum certified. They also said Evinrude was no help.

the factory service manual gives step by step instructions how to troubleshoot plus the dealer has to use the diagnostic software.

 

A factory manual copy can be purchased from  www.outboardbooks.com
