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)

    •   Well, like I said, I think it was fake news but it was still pretty darn good! I like a really tomatoey chili and this one was that.
    •   I like chili without beans but my wife likes them and this recipe called for beans so I went with it.   That's pretty close to what I just made but it looks darn good. I'll probably try this one next time!
    •   This has zero to do with the article I posted. I don't think you get it.   Another one that doesn't get it.
    •     So you're saying that statement isn't true?      
    •   Oh, I see now.   The Feds bowing out completely,  zero control, regulation and placing it in the hands of the citizens, effectively ending the war, will flip the script and it will correct itself.    Crime down, prisons emptied, addiction to new lows, family saved.   Stfu.   You have no idea or plans to swap in after decriminalizing. None. Nothing.        
    •     Do you have any evidence to back this statement up?   Because if you listen to Trump's rhetoric, the focus is clearly on illegal drugs coming across the border.  With a traditional militaristic approach.
    •     The double standard pertains more to whether you have the financial resources to go into treatment and avoid going to prison than to legal versus illegal.  If Rush didn't have the financial resources to hire a good lawyer, he would have gone to prison rather than to a treatment center - simple as that.  The federal government (via the taxpayers) funds prisons - they do not fund treatment centers.   Both are controlled substances, but the reality is the government doesn't do a very good job of controlling either one.  They are still dragging their feet on legalizing or even re-classifying marijuana, even though it is common knowledge their classification is a complete farce.   The legal opiate version is just as addicting, or possibly more addicting than the illegal version, and accounts for the largest percentage of drug overdose deaths today.   If there is a crackdown on prescription opioids, the data shows there will be an increase in illegal heroin use.  Florida is a prime example.   We know there are ways of treating addiction that do not involve prison sentences.     The War on Drugs going at it from the traditional/conventional federal perspective is a complete failure.   Those are the facts, but obviously none of that makes any difference to you, and you will continue to defend the status quo with no rational reason to do so.     Bobby nailed it when he said "syntax error on line 1"....
