Off of the alt.there is a resistor, what is it for, and where can I get one? This is an inline resistor, and is the origional wiring of this boat.This one got hot and burned up.

go to www.shop.evinrude.com and click on PARTS, then choose STERN DRIVE, and then the year and model number.
The only problem with engines that old are the jury-rigging and parts change-outs that are sometimes done over the years. Most are not in stock configuration anymore.

In some ignition circuits there is a ballast resistor. The resistor is shorted out during engine cranking so that the spark voltage can be as high as possible. During normal running the resistor is in the circuit which feeds the primary voltage to the spark circuit, typically a distributor arrangement with a common spark coil.
