Author Topic:   Ignition Kill Switch Installation

I'd like to put a kill switch in my 13.5 BW with 1978 Johnson 35 HP to avoid "unintended departure" from the vessel. I am uncertain where to tap into the wiring. The command center doesn't offer a lot of space or easy access and the wiring is nicely sealed...suggestions? experience? Thank you! Two pics:

It may be easier and more effective for you to replace the ignition switch with a new switch designed to use a lanyard that pulls free of the switch thus turning off the ignition.

ebalk,

Have you ever considered that an Evinrude dealer would probably have the correct switch in stock for you?
