Key start doesn't work on evinrude

Not sure of the year but i'd guess an 86 model maybe. the way to start the boat is turn the key and pull the cord. it fires right up. It won't start thought when i turn the key. it doesn't make a sound. I guess my question is if theres a diagram to follow to wire this or how do i need to get this thing firing when i turn the key? not to good with electrical things also so explain in very good details please. anything would help.

Hey Alex,
Does your kill switch still work?? IF NOT - GET THIS FIXED QUICK!! Get a multimeter,, set to volts.
You need to have power to the stater solenoid first..The solenoid is the "switch" that transfers power from the battery to the starter..the solenoid has heavy duty contacts that transfers low current to a high current for the starter.
. You need to determine if you have voltage to the solenoid..with the KEY ON.. check for voltage on the connection from the battery -it should be 12 + volts.... if YES, ...then CAREFULLY jump the major solenoid threaded studs with a screwdriver.(the one with the battery cable and the one that goes to the starter...((((SPARKS WILL FLY - and could cause a FIRE!!)))) IF the engine starts, you have a bad solenoid. If you do not have voltage going TO the solenoid.. you need to check the battery terminals, check the solenoid connectioins... and have your battery checked for COLD CRANKING AMPS... you can actually have 12 volts and NO amperage to "drive" the voltage..the symptoms would be exactly as you describe!!!

Need yr for evinrude E8RLNR


Bruce,
Do you have the serial number of the motor? Reason I ask is twofold. Evinrude started using this model number layout as of 1980. Having said this, something is not making sense with the location of the "N" in your model number. Those last two letters as of 1980 are the year. Here is the chart. Letter on top with corresponding year below it.

I N T R O D U C E S
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0

So... Example
1980= CS
1990= ES
2000= SS
2010= IS

You have E8RLNR which breaks down as:
E= Evinrude
8= 8hp
R= Rope start tiller steering
L= 20" shaft
N= 2nd year
R= 4th year

I would expect to see the N in the last spot:
1982= CN
1992= EN
etc.

Serial number is another way to identify the year.
This may hep point you in the right direction. Hope it helps.

It could be locked with oil in the cylinder. Remove the injector and turn the engine by hand to expel the oil. Top up the engine oil and refit the injector. If the engine won't turn with the injector/s out then it is seized and needs rebuilding.
