I have one of those engines. I also have the manual. Costs £20 on line.

However if you know what wiring diagram you need then I can scan it in and send it to you.

Trouble is the manuals cover all Mercury engines. Be they 10 HP or 200 HP.

If I can help I will, but personally although people were willing to help me when I first got the engine the easiest thing to do in the end was buy my own manual.

I would be quite happy to take photos of my engine if it helps you rebuild it and also give any advice I can.

However I am not a mechanic or electrician, but reference photos do help.

Regards Nick.

I also had to rebuild my Killswitch.

The local 'Arthur Daleys' in Southampton wanted a minimum of £42 for a kill switch. In the end I totally rebuilt mine. Not very pretty but it works.

I spent a whole day driving around all the chandlers in southampton and only found two Mercruiser kill switches, not even Mercury Kill Switches. Either buy a new one on line or rebuild the one you have.

Maybe we could meet up later this year.

I shall be out in the Solent from1 March 2005 and frequent Bembridge and Culver Bay.

Regards Nick R.

hi biggles,
do you have the wireing diagram for where the loom joins the engine. i think the ignition has been hotwired, and now the key starts, but doesnt stop the engine. i have the wireing diagram for where the key switch joins the loom as i have already replaced it.
thanks for your help

Right mate I've had a look in the manual and theres a few wiring diagrams. What I'll do is copy them all and you can choose the one you want.

Can you PM me your E Mail address which will make it easier for me to send them to you.

Regards Biggles.

If the key will start the engine but wont stop it check the black wire with a yellow trace, if you earth out this wire it will (or should) cut the engine.

Hes right with the kill switch wiring. Black and yellow needs to go to earth to kill the engine.

On mine it goes through a seperate kill switch which when closed goes to earth and kills it.

A little tip. Don't touch it when the engines running. It hurts.

With regards the pics I couldn't work out where the Kill switch is on that diagram.

Best of luck.

I had been looking for a killswitch a while ago, and got mine from here (E-1120/C with coiled lanyard £9.07 ) They sent it up for a few pounds... Works great and not that expensive... Just a tip for any other people looking for a killswitch!

hi guys, i have a few remaining spares from a blueband 60 including carb's, dissy, electronics box if either of you want to make a sensiable offer. These are worth bundles really but now collecting dust (Just sold gearbox for £50 on ebay - cost £300 to refurb a few years ago) so sensiable offers?

Unfortunatly i don't have a wiring loom or remotes box anymore.
