Evinrude Problem

I have an 1992 Evinrude 150 outboard that has always ran great. It just recently however quit starting. I did a total output test and found no spark at any cyclinder. So I did a power coil and charge coil resistance and output tests, as well as a stop circuit test. Everything checked out except there was no voltage indicated on either output tests. I do not have the equipment to check the ignition sensor or the power pack. Assuming I did the output test correctly, what would be the most likely part that would be causing this problem? I am not a mechanic, but very handy with engines, so I would really like to fix this without a trip to the shop. Any help you can give would be very much appreciated. Thanks

Since you've done everything you possibly can to this point, I hate to say plug and play, but....Since you've narrowed it down to these two items, find out what they would cost to replace vs. the cost of having a shop do what you've already done and replace the bad part. Do any of your boating buddies have the test equipment, or do you have a shop that would cut you come slack and just test the parts you've isolated?

Well, according to my tech manual, if I have no voltage then I am to check the stator connections, which I did and they seem fine. So would I need to replace the stator, or the coils? And what would be the chance of all three coils going out at the same time?? At this point I would assume that the power pack is not the problem since the voltage loss is coming into the power pack, not from it. Thanks again for your help.

what tools are you working with. You should have a volt meter with a DVA (direct voltage adapter) this should be use for testing stator and trigger output or you can hurt your meter.
