About this book
If like most do-it-yourselfers you've relied on a sketchy owner's manual or one of those abstruse shop manuals written for professional mechanics to keep your onboard running, here's an end to your frustration. This abundantly illustrated nonthreatening guide is filled with effective maintenance, repair, and advanced troubleshooting advice for two-cycle and four-cycle engines from 2 to 250 horsepower. Although outboard engines have become more reliable, they're also more sophisticated and require more than a passing knowledge of mechanics to troubleshoot and repair. Outboard Engines covers recent developments such as electronic ignition, oil injection systems, and four-stroke powerheads. Your fears about the reliability of your "finicky" outboard are over!

    0 3/5 Wild Will (REDDING, CT, US) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Sierra International MP41000 Push To Choke Marine Ignition Switch (Automotive) Unclear lay-out as poor markings on switch and package's diagram is different than the actual switch. A = Accessory is same as I = Ignition. Figuring out Two M's (one to engine ground & other to Kill Switch (raised M on original switch) is the biggest hassle (flip if doesn't work). Make sure drain hole is pointing down, otherwise switch won't survive the first winter since water will be trapped & freeze. Unhook battery before replacing switch (other wise you will below the in-line fuse below starter solenoid) 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 21, 2014

This review is from: Sierra International MP41000 Push To Choke Marine Ignition Switch (Automotive) Not pleasant being on the water and your ignition switch acts up. Installed this one (almost identical to the one I replaced) and it works like a champ. Decent price, easy installation, just be careful about wiring. I'm not a boat expert, but there are a couple of terminals with the same letter designation. I just did one wire at a time, but study it first. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 4, 2012

    Perfect fit replacement

    Well, not completely perfect; it uses a standard nut to hold the ignition switch in. I used the old one, although the new one would have done the job just as well. I just wanted to keep the stock look.Otherwise, it's absolutely perfect. I was thrilled to find this particular switch at such a reasonable price, and it works perfectly. It's a real thrill to be riding around mowing the grass instead of working on the silly mower!The extra pins (compared to most riding mower ignition switches) just run the headlights, the switch has 4 positions instead of the normal 3. Off, ON with headlights ON, ON with headlights OFF, and START. The pinout is different than a generic switch too, so a five pin switch won't plug in.I believe the functions are the same, I was about to start cutting wires and adapting to a generic switch when I found this 7 pin on Amazon. I didn't actually DO the conversion, as I found the correct replacement part, so I don't KNOW that it... 5/5 Harry Moto (Arizona, USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    good but terminals are a little crowded

    0 5/5 T. Machamer (Chicago) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Sierra MP39760 Switch Ignition (Medium) (Automotive) This key switch covers all of your ignition needs.This key switch has a contact for each position. Key off, Key On, Crank and push in for choke.If you have a magneto or an electronic ignition this key switch will work. Now you have to use the correct pin on the back of the switch so get that ohm meter out.this is a good key switch if you have an outboard which has an electric choke. I think the magneto switch is separate / does not share a common connection. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 26, 2010

    Marking problem

    0 3/5 amanda reese - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Sierra MP39760 Switch Ignition (Medium) (Automotive) The package has a S for solenoid, and an I for ignition switch. The switch has an A instead of the S and an I. Being new to boats and stuff I thought I for ignition, well that's wrong. The I is for accessories. Took a little bit to figure out what I did wrong because of the switch being marked wrong. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 30, 2013

    Need better product description

    0 3/5 Bruce Eastman - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Sierra MP39760 Switch Ignition (Medium) (Automotive) This switch is the 'short' or 'medium' length body. If your dash-board is as thick as a typical sheet of plywood, this switch my not be long enough to get to the threads on the front of the dash-board. I had to use a drimmel tool and router type bit to the back of the dash in order to make a spot that I could get the switch to fit in my boat dash. Seems like a decent product (I have only had it for 1 month), although the plastic is fairly soft and may wear quickly. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 5, 2013

    Works just not much to work with

    This is a basic Normal Open momentary relay that will replace the crank/ignition part of the ignition sequence. Yeah the instructions are not helpful. I actually used google translator to take a picture of the japanese instructions and translate them. That basically told me what wires do what but the colors are wrong in both the japanese and the english. None of that really matters though when you understand how basic the relay is. There are two skinny wires red and black. Connect black to ground and red to a power source that is always on. For the two thicker blue wires connect one to a 12 volt power source and the other to the ignition wire. You don't even have to cut the ignition wire but you could. Yes you'll have to figure out which one is the ignition wire yourself. Google is your friend here as well. They can't include a manual for every car. You can imagine how bad that translation would be even if they tried.The way it works: Put your key in and turn it to... 4/5 Cy Comer (Hartford, CT United States) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Cool product for the price!

    0 4/5 Hawk78 - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Universal 12V Car Engine Start Blue LED Push Button Switch Ignition Starter Kit (Automotive) Installed this in my 2007 Mustang GT with a manual. Compared to other products priced around $70 this was a great deal. Looks like a factory option installed where the cigarette lighter used to be. Would have given 5 stars but the instrutions are about useless. They have one that is in english but all it does is tell you what wires are for what, the other one that actually has pictures is not in english at all. You'll need to look up your vehicles wiring diagram in order to wire this I was able to find someone on youtube that had this installed on a mustang and it at least got me in the right direction but took some trail and error to get it working. I was able to wire mine up so that the light only comes on when you push the button so that its not on all the time while im driving. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , April 21, 2013
