I believe that is the remote idle adjustment screw. It should be mounted on a small bracket along the frame somewhere. I'm pretty sure it's not related to your issue.

It looks like the previous owner already tried the salt water immersion procedure. Guess you can skip that one.

It's definitely not an airbox or gas drain.

You're right!

I didn't notice the lil' bracket 'til I took a second look! I just figured it was the airbox drain, and someone had merely stuffed some random knob into it as a plug.

See? SEE!? This is what I was talkin' about! - Another reason why it's so frakkin' hard to diagnose these things over the 'Net!

Either way, it's NOT the reason it won't start.

(THAT reason is because it's a [hack, SPIT!] SV........)

my suspicion is that it's the starter relay

i had the same problem, replaced the starter relay and voila
