How do you hook up the kill switch wires on old evinrude motor to key?

6 posts in this topic

I have a 1965 Evinrude Big Twin 40HP and there are two wires coming down from the place where the coil,condenser wires are hooked to and they must cut out the points some how I'm assuming and now I have a key switch in my boat and was wondering the correct way to hook these into my key. Any help would be much appreciated Thanks Chris

Sorry.. I have no idea. I'd be tempted to call around and see if you can find a dealer that has a wiring diagram for that motor.

Good Luck!

The back of the key switch should be marked.

S- start

c- choke

a- accesory (12 volts to the dash with key in run position)

B- battery or power feed

M- magneto

M- magneto

The 2 marked "M" are the ones that will complete the circuit to ground.

If they are not marked, they are the only 2 that show continuity in the "OFF" position. ( dont hook up an ohms tester with power connected to the switch)
