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!

    JUNK!

    This product should be retired immediately! Like other reviews, my switch was faulty right out of the package.After checking my connections over and over and having others check my work, the switch still failed to work properly. I disconnected it and checked the switch with a continuity tester and the switch checked out. I even tried connecting just the 12v red battery wire and the yellow starter relay wire to "ST" the damn thing still would malfunction. With just these two wires connected the starter would crank in the "RUN" position. Not the spring loaded "START" position but the "RUN" position!This switch is fairly simple to hook up yet the way this POS operates just blows my mind! I would have gladly paid twice as much for anything that worked, but this was the only switch available at Pep Boys at the time. Worse yet, I'm not sure it is returnable since it is electrical - I will have to find out.In conclusion,... 1/5 Review It - See all my reviews This review is from: Dorman 85936 Conduct Tite Universal Key Starter Switch (Automotive) This product should be retired immediately!

    Basic switch works

    0 4/5 Alex Holmes - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Dorman 85936 Conduct Tite Universal Key Starter Switch (Automotive) I bought this to retrofit into a classic car rebuild and it works great so far. I have not had it on the road yet, so I can't comment on how well it works over time, but the key action and spring return is good. No key binding, and the construction is very solid. Wiring lugs are well spaced and insulated from each other. I would get this item again. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 26, 2013

This is very heavy duty and comes with screw wire terminals that are awesome. 4 extra keys which is sweet so I'll never have to get more made.

    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.

    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 (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 (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.

    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 (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

This review is from: Universal LED Push Engine Start Starter Button Switch Ignition Kit Blue Illumination I purchased the Universal Push Engine Starter Button kit and had some questions about the wiring as the instructions that came with the kit wasn't real clear for me. I'm installing on a 73 celica I'm restoring so I didn't want to mess up the wiring. They replied right away with an additional wiring diagram. I still had questions about the color coding so they contacted the manufacturer to get the color coding for me. Now that's what I call great customer support. I'll be purchasing a couple of TRD shift knobs from them now. Good company to deal with.

I have also included a photo for reference. This can easily be rectified by cutting down one of the screws but I didn't find it necessary.
