UPDATE, Boat runs great !

I put a new cap & BUT NO ROTOR(qiucksilver) NGK plugs, and fuel filters.

Question: with the new Cap on it and it runs ausome ! gets on planes fast as hell and starts with a turn of the key.

But, now a week later the boat is slow to get on plane but runs great. I have had this issue before .. I put a new cap and rotor on and it is back to running great.

Also ? can't i clean up the cap with sandpaper ?

I did kinda drop 2 of the hold down screws of the 4 for the cap fell down the bilge. Could this be any a part of my issue ?

Yep, that could be your issue. If the cap is loose and walking all over the place, it could make it run $hitty. Also, if your distributor is getting a lot of wear on it it can cause ignition problems.

Were the plugs getting fouled at all?
