  • Where can I get a wiring diagram for an 85 hp evinrude

    Hi,
    I've just been given a 1968 85 hp evinrude and all the wiring insulation has cracked and corroded. Some wires have got that bad that they've broken off. It would be extreemly heplful if anyone could help me out.
    The model number is 85893A.
    The serial sumber is E02728.

            Thanks for the diagram.
            Just a question, what is the box with the purple, black and two red wires coming out?
            I hope its nothing to do with the ignition because the one on m,y outboard has the wires corroded down to the box!

              Also if it is not anything to do with the ignition, is there any way I can by-pass it?

                is the motor going to be able to run without part 38?

                      You could try some different outboard dlr's in your area and you may find one.

                        Actually, that is the very heart of the battery CD ignition system. It is called the amplifier.

                          Hi,
                          Thanks, I think I might have found a way to repair it by soldering the small amount of wire left over and use heat-shrink tubing as an insulator. it should work.

                            And if worst comes to worst I'll buy a new amplifier.
