Have a 1972 Evinrude 65 hp with "Selectric" control box--Model # 65273S
This motor is off the boat. I try to start it with the control box and the starter spins but does not engage the flywheel.... if I continue to try to start it, using the key ignition, the ignition switch starts to smoke. The red wire with the blue stripe, on the ignition switch, gets extremly hot. I need help on where to start with replacing parts, or how to test which part is even bad.
1 ignition switch.
2 starter silinoid
3 bad control box.
the motor runs fine without the control box plugged in to the motor and "jumpstarting" it straight on the starter.....if this helps...
