Engine wont stop

Good Afternoon all,

I have recently purchased a 4m Ribeye with 35HP Evinrude Engine.

i ran the engine for the first time this weekend after repairing a fuel leak on the oil mixer unit.

Once started the engine would not stop either with the key or by the use of the kill cord.

the engine is 1995 electric start, T&T Model but appears to have been fitted with the 1996 Modular wiring loom, albeit the remote wiring end seems to be older....

Looking at the manuals there are two core back to the power pack

Black Yellow (Stop Ignition side)
Black White (Stop Ground side)

Having traced the cable through the black white is not connected onto the boats wiring harness. but it is connected at the remote as its ground.

Using an older wiring diagram it shows the kill switch connected between black yellow and ground. with this in place and the kill cord removed i did not get any sparks, and with the kill cord in place it did spark.

Should the Black Yellow be connected to the Black White rather than Ground, or is there something else i might have missed?

Any thought appreciated
