I have a 1992 Evinrude 40 HP on a 1970 Whaler. I use it for duck hunting. It ran fine last year but won't start this year. I knew nothing about it on Saturday now I know exactly how it works thanks to the information on this site. Great resource!
I know my starter solenoid is good because I can apply direct power to the starter post and the engine turnse over.
The red w/ violet strip wire at the key switch is dead.
My question is: Where is the fuse?
Any help is greatly appreciated. Duck season starts saturday and I've got other boat prep to do.

In most any electrical circuit the fuse for a branch circuit is located close to the source of the electrical power. In an 1992 Evinrude, the fuse should be under the cowling of the engine. Follow the primary positive power lead. The RED-VIOLET conductor should branch off from it with a fuse.

If the fuse is blown, worry about WHY it blew. If it's not
blown, I'll bet some critter chewed on the wiring.
What whaler? Where does the wiring run between the engine
