I've been working on this Johnson-Evenrude 60hp 1971 engine and when I crank the engine the propeller turns. I have looked at the neutral switch in the console and bypassed it for neutral. The engine still cranked with the propellor turning.(The propeller turns regardless of what wire (Green or Blue)I make hot).

Is it possible the neutral switch and/or the reverse switch in the bottom assembly of the engine is bad??

Is there anything unusual and to be careful about when I remove these switches?

Thanks in Advance
