I just installed this motor on my boat which had an evinrude on it before. The connectors matched right up in the solenoid box under the back.
I fired it up (with lower unit submerged) long enough to find out it would start but the ignition would not shut it down so I choked it out to stop it.
Further investigation revealed the boat had the wrong ignition switch (3 terminals) when it should have five. The two wires for the magneto are just hanging loose and there is nowhere on the switch to connect.
I am looking for the correct ignition switch (probably 5 terminals with magneto) and help getting the wiring correct at the switch.
The motor sounded great, fired right up!
A friend suggested I hook the two magneto wires to a toggle switch but I want it done right....
Thanks in advance for any help!
Evinrude Model 75353R
