Here's something to try. There are cans of plastic coat to dip stuff into to insulate them. Then you could also try to remove the terminals and use shrink tubes on the wires and then replace the terminals. If only for a short while you can see if that fixes the problem.

Does a 1985 60hp merc have a choke to help start it or how do I go about doing this yes Im a new boat owner of this kind anyways :)


its on the ignition key ! as you turn it on to first position you then push the key in then as it starts let go and with the control lever on a slight high tickover you mite have to dab the choke a couple of times till it ticks over ! dont over choke or you will flood the plugs ! less is best and just let it warm up before setting off !

I have a 50 hp 1975 Johnson outboard. When I turn


There is a switch in the control box that locks out the start unless you are in neutral. Open the box and put in a new switch,this is a safty device to keep it from starting in forward and throwing you out of the boat. Jim OMC retired Mech

Need help replacing solonid on mercury outboard


You may have enough room for a wrench. I have an old ignition set of small wrenches and those are slim. There is also a fitting called a crowsfoot which is thick like a wrench but short and fits on a rachet extension. The 1/4" drive set of sockets are usually shorter than 3/8th. If you have a camera, take pictures and go to Sears with it and buy something to work.

Have 1975 Merc 115 h.p. motor. won't turn over with key


it may be your neutral safety switch. Try it again but this time turn the key with one hand and wiggle the throttle/shifter lever at the same time. My 25 johnson does this, but usually I can wiggle the shifter and she'll turn over. Hope this helps.
