I'm also pretty sure it's the same (or close enough ) to the 60......

Hunt around for a mercury switch - likley on the stbd side near the top by the coils. the idea of it was to turn the engine off before the prop / water intake cleared the water.

Also check all your HT leads - these things use proper oldschool tech. I found one of mine had completely disconnected between the cable core & the bullet on the connector.....

Also not sure if yours will have an overheat switch - Likely on the cyl head by the top spark plug. If it has one it'll be "close when hot", and wired into the deadman circuit. Run your meter over that as well if present.

Also just to check - you don't have an auto oiling unit sitting by the transom do you?

...Uncle Al beat me to what might be the worst case scenario......
