Ok here is the problem, sometimes my 1967 13 footer with the Evinerude 25 starts fine and sometimes...nothing. Everything seems fine, when it starts, it's great and runs wonderful and it will run all day. Everything checks out fine, starter, plugs battery, new cables, relay...my thought is to replace the key igition...what are some of the thoughts here? Is there a test to check if in fact it is the switch? the switch has four posts and two wires to each post. thanks all

It could be the interlock switch which keeps it from starting in gear. I'd check that first.

That switch is closed by being in Neutral, Samars. If you are not in Neutral it prevents power to the starter solenoid. Try wiggling your throttle control a bit when you have the problem. That is much more likely than the Ign. switch.

Good luck.
