I fitted one though I sold the engine years ago ,
From memory ,
Unscrew the choke button
Back of the plastic stop button / choke fascia inside the cowl there's 2 small nuts ( remove these & the front cover comes off ,
On the back of the stop button there's a large plastic nut ,
Unscrew that & the stop button will be now loose dangling on 2 wires ,
Cut the wires & take away the old stop button and just join the wires to the new Kill switch unit ,

usually it will push back into the old hole and retighten though if its a sloppy fit a larger washer may be required on the nut to stop it falling out ,


Vice versa You may have to file a larger hole if the new kill switch is larger or put a larger washer on the nut if its smaller ,
Hope this helps .

^^ What he said.

There's usually a few kill switches with cords on Ebay. Get a genuine one-most of the aftermarket ones are poor quality.

And make sure you buy the correct type. You need a "break to make" function for an outboard!

The plus side is if you get the wrong type your engine won't start!

As I recall, the Merc switch I changed my F115 to had 3 pins allowing for a NO or NC operation.
