I have a 1972 65 HP Johnson Hydro Electric OB. I got this motor for free with a boat and it started a few years ago once before I removed it from the boat and stored it for 2 years. I have re-mounted the motor and now I cant get ti to do anything....no noise..no nothing when I turned the key. I have the manual and it appears that the forward/neutral/reverse switch (in the controller) is broken.
Is there a way to bypass the switch so I can start the engine? I just want to make sure that it fires up before spending any money it.
ps...anybody know of any cheap places for parts?
