Located on the cylinder head above the #1 cylinder, near the top. Will have 3 bolts holding the thermostat cover to the head. There is a spring holding the thermostat to the seal.

85 40hp evinrude stuck in forward?

Evinrude used a shift mechanism located in the lower unit that is actuated by a rod up to the linkage in the motor housing. It could be stuck anywhere along the way or the gear that shifts on the shaft could be immobile due to rust and corrosion.
You may want to find a blowup of your exact model via a Google search. Then starting from the top look for your problem. be sure to mark the position of anything adjustable so you can at least get it back to the original position when you reassemble it.

1968 evinrude starflite 100 hp no spark

Some of those had a battery ignition with a short cap and rotor, and some had a magneto which reached down into the bucket. Both had points and condenser like an old car. The cog belt location was critical. 2 teeth off and it would not fire. the key switch was wired diferently for each ignition system.
