i acquired this 55 hp evinrude selectric last summer. i dont know the age for sure, the model number is 55973 A and the serial # J07071. the insulation on the wiring has all but disappeared from the wires, some wires cant even tell the original color. can anyone give me suggestions on where to start. i need a wiring schematic, should prob look for a good book on the motor, someone suggested seloc, so i am going to try to get one of those. i did try to splice in new wires and got it to turn over, but got no spark, so im not sure if i got all the wires on right. are there websites that can help me too? i did look at all the postings here and didnt see anything pertaining to my particular motor. hope you can help me out. firstname.lastname@example.org
