Hi there, I have recently bought a complete Evinrude 55hp 3 cylinder for parts, but after dismantling the assembly I was pleasantly surprised to find that the engine is in better condition than the one I already had.
Problem is, the whole electric system from the plug at the front of the loom has fallen apart beyond repair.
But after looking for a replacement setup, it would be much better in price and newer technology to fit one from a later model 70hp three cylinder...?

Will it fit, and that mean I have to also change the stator and fit separate coils?
Any compatible ideas would be great.
Cheers Ken
