  • 1981 basstracker 3 ignition switch

    I recently acquired an '81 basstracker 3. The boat is in good shape, but the ignition switch is in pieces. I have a new switch for the 40 hp push to choke mercury. However the pin configuration is different. Does anyone out there know what the wiring colors are and what they are for? Thanks.

      thanx for the pin out diagram. I think the switch is factory, I am replacing it with a Sierra mp41000.

            Sorry but my question is who made the original key switch or control. Your trying to install a Mercury motor but what was the original motor?

              Sorry about that the merc is the original motor the new switch is labeled for function not color code I was needing to know what the color functions are. Also the switch has 2 M pins one magneto one ground that was my concern about the black with yellow stripe wires. Thanks for your response hope to be on the water in April. Thanks again!
