Knowles Electronics are USA based and look as though might be hard to track down.
Have emailed Mermaid to see what they got, maybe a used one might be avail.

Paul, driving past Mermaid last week I popped in with the credit card and picked up a FIP soleniod. Paid the 50 for the convienence and it comes with the right size bracket to fit the pump. Installation was straight forward and is triggered from a mercuriser kill switch, which I have been meaning to fit for a long time (driving the P22 solo with no kill switch was a concern). The merc kill switch makes a circuit when the cord is pulled so opperates the soleniod. A separate press button piggy backed on to the kill switch switch allows the engine to be stopped normally.

That looks better. I already have a merc kill switch fitted. Have you now done away with the manual pull stop then?? Might have to go down that route.

I shouldn't worry, if you fell overboard you could always do breast stroke and catch up.

No, they're built to survive the navy, which is a completely different thing!

Meeow , says she who has been busy during the last two years converting "Distant Fumble" into a caravan.

Paul, yes ditched the cable stop. The soleniod has quite a kick to it (the word "mouse trap" springs to mind) so it might need a better clamp on the FIP shut off lever.
