  • 1973 85 hp evinrude wiring

    I have a 1973 evinrude 85 hp. When I got it, someone had rigged the wiring, to a new ignition switch. I have no idea what wires are which. The engine will not cut off with the switch. I have to use the kill switch to turn off the engine. I purchased a manual, but the wiring diagram is vague. It only covers all 1973 v4 motors. Can anyone help me make heads or tails of the wires to hook this up correctly?

    Thanks ahead of time!!

    A typical push to choke switch is wired as shown here: http://www.maxrules.com/graphics/omc...REMCONTBOX.jpg

    The original switch for your motor was wired as shown in the thumbnail.
