    I test mine each time I put the boat on the water, if I pull the kill switch it will not start, but If I start the engine and then pull the kill switch the engine will continue to run until I put it into gear then it stops, if I'm idling out and pull the kill switch it will die, they are designed to shut down the engine while you are in motion.................Doc

  3. Van, my kicker 8hp rude shuts down in or out of gear, can you see the switch? Maybe stuck...
