"I have a 1979,35HP,electric start,cd-2 ignition,MODEL NO.#35E79A outboard.
I had a ignition switch that you turn the key and push it in to electronically choke your outboard.
On the back of the switch ,YOU HAVE CONNECTION POSTS FOR THE CHOKE PURPLE&WHITE WIRE,A=ACESSORIES,S=SELANOID YELLOW&RED WIRE,M=GROUND BLACK WIRE,M=GROUND BLACK&YELLOW WIRE,B=BATTERY RED&PURPLE WIRE.
I bought a universal ignition switch at auto zone that does not have a choke or selanoid connection post.It has a battery post,ignition post,acessories post,and a post with no name.What post do I connect the selanoid wire(yellow & red),the choke wire(purple&white) too?Does the battery wire red&purple still connect to the battery post?
The two ground wires black and black & yellow connect to the post with no name?
The switch I bought wont work on outboards?
I dont want to short out my power pack so any imput would be greatly appreciated,thanx the STURGEON GENERAL.
