Help Tip: If you have a question that has not been answered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum members.

Below are some additional forum policies in hopes of all iboats members will follow, Thank you.

1. Please do not reply to old threads or hijack existing threads. Old threads of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

2. Old threads should be considered archives and used for reference only. Please do not reply to them.

3. Do not take over someone elseís thread (aka hijack) with your own question, even if it is similar. If you have a question that has not been covered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the thread is over 30 days old, send the OP a PM, he may not even visit the forums any longer, or may not notice your question in the old thread.

5. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum helpers that may not even notice your question when itís posted at the end of someone elseís thread. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to threads that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any thread that remains inactive for that long should be considered "dead". It is especially confusing when there is an entirely new question posted to an old thread.

7. Posting at the end of any thread is considered to be hijacking the original posters thread which in turn subjects the thread to be closed if it continues to happen thus not making it fair to the original poster in the future had for some reason he/she needed to return for additional information or provide an update of the problem solved which is always welcomed within a reasonable amount of time frame.

8. Please note that you should see a red banner pop up near the bottom of each inactive thread asking you not to reply to old threads. The Red banner will read: Please note this thread has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new thread.

Thank you all in advance for doing your part in helping iboats run a smooth ship.

  • Wiring harness adapter to late model?

    Iv'e heard of a cable that will adapt my current controls for my 85' 140 w/ t&t to a 96' and newer outboard. Can someone fill me in on this. Is this a decent way to go or am I better off with new controls anyway? Where/what does it convert?

    Thanks

      I would say my controls are in fair condition. I was just thinking maybe I could cut the cost of this repower.

        There are a couple adaptor cables to adapt 96' and newer engines to 95' and older controls. Would work for you if your trying to keep costs' down. One kit is just a cable adaptor...runs around $60. The other I believe will adapt your rig to system check set up....runs around $200+ I think. Don't know what engine your considering but check with your local J/Rude dealer for more details.
        When in doubt...use the manual

          Is this the control box I would need for the 96'/97'motor? If so, what other harnesses would I need? I believe I have an updated oil tank with the sensor in it.

          Thanks,

              That box will connect up to any 96 and newer motor. You will need a harness to to go from the box to the engine. Check with your local John/Rude dealer.

                you will also need the shift and throttle cables, if you can't reuse the old ones.

                  Thanks for the help everyone. I stopped by my Evinrude dealer today and bought the adapter harness. It sound like this should work out good for now.
