Vintage Boat ignition Question?

Ok, i have a 1954 johnson seahorse thats having starting troubles. I did some troubleshooting, and believe the problem might lie in the kill swtich, however, my electrical friend said it was a mercury switch that grounds the motor when the throttle is lowered ie. killing the engine. My question is, is this right? Where can i find mercury switch, or do they still exist? Any info on this would be very apprecated. thank you.

i don't remember omc using a mercury switch,but they did use a vacuum switch,designed to kill the ignition in case of "runaway" on some engines. in any case,all magneto type ignition systems will make power until grounded. this wire is black/yellow on newer engines.disable any kill wires, one at a time,to find the bad circuit. if it is a bad mercury or vacuum switch i wouldn't worry too much about it,just be sure that you have a kill switch to turn the engine off.
