    Default Ignition Problems with my 502

    I have an Eliminator Whaler with a 502 engine with a Mallory Ignition system in the boat. The problem I am having is that the boat starts to miss at about 3000 RPM through 4800 RPM. I am thinking of replacing the ignition system because the ignition sometime just quits and there is just no spark. I have check all the fuses and breakers everything looks good. What type of ignition systems are you guys using in your jet boats and what problems have you had, if any? This problem just puzzles me. HELP!!!

    I use a standard distributor with a Pertronix Ignitor in it. Very Simple, yet effective. Only issue I have had was it over heating due to sitting there with the ignition to on and not running. New ones have a higher heat resistance now. Have had it for about 11 years.

    I had a similar problem a few years back and it ended up being the positive battery cable connection.
