Notice there is 4 leads to the ignition(IGN), all purple! Actually one is a dark purple and the rest are a lighter purple. From what I understand, they don’t make a switch built like this anymore. So once again wondering if I can tap into the knowledge on the site here.
Question1: Would I be separating the “magneto’s “ from the current IGN terminal on the old key switch? Being the novice outboard mechanic I am, I’m only guessing with my question here cause I can’t find a switch that looks like my old one. Or does it even have magneto to wire to? This site recommends part number 0386947, which looks to have 'M' terminals to wire to.
Question 2: My Dad has a 6 terminal switch that has a push choke (it’s a 3 position off, on, start) that he is willing just to give away. I know the above model doesn’t have a push choke on it so I was thinking I could just not wire the ‘C’ terminal to anything and wire the other 5 terminals (putting the choke wire from the old key switch on the A/I terminal). My electric choke is actually a toggle switch that is just below the key. Would that work? Is there other variables to consider?
Re: Can I use a “universal” key switch in my 72' 100HP Johnson?
Looks like the switch is still available. I am not sure about the 6 terminal switch because I don't know what it fits to check out the electrical system. I would get the proper switch, I would not want to cause problems with the pulse pack and then have to buy a new one. http://www.ishopmarine.com/ishop/jsp...ier-100-005-EJ
