    Since I sank my skiff 3 weeks ago, I needed to buy a replacement engine... I had a 77 rude 25 hp tiller so I got another Evinrude. My stupid question is this, " what is the little knob that sticks out the end of the tiller handle, beyond the twist grip?"

    Also, the engine now has a push button start switch where I would imagine it had a key switch. Did they come with a key switch?

    Lastly, the engine wont start unless I choke it for 1 second, even when warmed up. Any suggestions?

    The protruding knob is the idle adjustment control.
    Turning it changes the throttle stop point.

    If your unhappy with the way she's starting,
    give her a complete tune up and a carb rebuild.
    But as long as she runs, you can just keep using the choke.

    Key type ignitions are standard with console steering models, not tiller styles.

    Well, that begs the question, how I kill the engine? Pull the lanyard? Seems primitive...

    Do you all wear the lanyard? I never had one on a boat.

    Pressing in on the kill switch button is the recommended way to stop the engine.
    Pressing it grounds out the ignition system. No spark, engine stops.

    That kill switch lanyard is a required safety device.
    Using it is something all experienced boaters learn to do.
    Usually by experiencing a situation that requires the cleaning
    of their underwear afterwards, if they survive unharmed.

    I see it's been a few years since you've dealt with binary numbers Chris... ;)

    Here's a web based tool for converting binary to decimal
