Hot wire!

is it simple to start an outboard while bypassing the control pannel?
when i turn the key the odd time nothing happens then it will start perfect the next time i try, obviously a loose connection. this would just make me happier out at see if it did not start.

thanks phil

You link the wires out on the starter motor, they will be two smaller wires for your switch from the controls.
You could try these but it could be the starter motor sticking.
The fact my Mercury starter had something to the effects of "do not hit with a lump hammer" sprayed on the side tell you a bit.
Have you belled the cables out to check there ok?

PS Haven't been stuck since!!

you should still hear the soleniod clicking in and out, but a screwdriver across the two big wires on that will get you spinning
