I recently bought a 87 125hp force motor. I put the motor on a boat and instead of using the original wiring I used the boats. Now I cant figure out the boats wiring so im going to use the original wiring. However, I cant remember how to hook up the ignition switch. I have 8 wires and only 6 prongs
On the ignition switch: White to one "M" blue to the other "M" Yellow to start, red to batt, green to choke. These wores do not attach to the switch: Purple is used for tachometer signal and orange is overheat indicator. Black is a common ground and can be used on a ground bussbar to ground instruments, radio, tach, lights, etc.
