    I did not wait to load the story..... but think of the early days when Merc 800s started in gear.....and stop meant the motor stopped running and R meant the motor started up backwards if you were quick nuf to get it stared and not hit the dock......AKA DOCKBUSTERS......

    I believe it was the Merecury 78A called a direct-reversing engine. It may have had 2 starters, my memory's not what it used tobe.

    Most people that Don't know think the 2 coils are for different rotation.....Naaaa Merc man carl knew the 6 cly 2 stroke would phase out the coils limit..... so it was 2 coil for each bank of 3..... the starter had 2 bendix gears....each one for a diff roataion.....2 solionods and to late to spell......The distubuter... had a slack in the coulpling that would let the timing have nuf to let the linkage bump over tdc.....when dist ran its limit..... BaL BaLLLL BaLLLLa.... Who cares..... how it worked.....it did....
