There are three choices for the location of a new stop switch (if used); A dash or gunnel location near the control, the steering adaptor bracket, if remote steering is used, or in a hole (F) that can be drilled in the steering bracket.
CD ('86) and newer models use the stop switch and mounting ring supplied in
this kit. Earlier models can reuse stop switch from motor without grommet. A new
terminal pin (7) and ring terminal (8) are provided so new stop
switch can be used on earlier models, if required.
1974 Thru CO (1985) Models
Disconnect switch and remove nut and washer securing stop switch to front of
lower motor cover. Remove switch. Discard bushing behind switch.
Find a suitable location for the stop switch (9) and drill a 5/8 in. (16 mm) mounting hole if required.
Measure from remote switch location along gunwale to centerline of motor. Allow extra length so that wires are not tight when motor is turned.
When stop switch is located near remote control, cut off the stop switch terminals. Cut 16 gauge wire to required length. Splice wires using rosin core solder and shrink tube.
