can't wire my yamaha - help needed
I have recently purchased a yamaha 28 outboard with electric start and electric choke.
I don't think it had been used on the electric start by the previous owner, as it has pull start as well.
The problem I have is this :
The engine has 3 wires coming out under the hood - a red, a black and a white. (also have battery cables fitted already.
If I touch the red and black together, the motor will turn and fire. There is no stop switch, so I don't know how to stop it.
I have a stop switch on a lanyard (2 wire) but don't know where to connect it.
Can I just fit a push button start switch to start it by connecting to the red and black wires ?
The white wire is supposed to be the engine stop circuit, but don't know where to wire it to.
ANY HELP greatly appreciated, as I am nearly at my wit's end.
