  • 60 HP Mercury Bigfoot Won't Start...

    I have a 1995 Bigfoot that is giving me trouble. I got it running yesterday for about a minute and then it cut out. When I tried to restart it, all I got was a click from the solenoid. The Starter is not engaging. Does this sound like a typical starter problem? Is changing out the starter a big job, or is it basically a bolt on item? Any help is greatly appreciated.

    That is a wiring problem, Seaway. A dirty connection.

    Go to the Engine FAQs and do the starter circuit troubleshooting in "Outboard won't start".
