20amp fuse

Just put an Evinrude 150hp on my boat and runs like a champ, the problem is when I shut it down, it wont start up. Keeps blowing the 20 amp fuse under the cowling. When I got the motor, the test runs were fine, would start up everytime. Is it a case of wiring issues or is it much deeper than that?

You need to do some digging to find out what circuit or circuits the fuse protects. If it only supplies one circuit, such as the starter, you need to find if the wire is making ground contact or if the starter is going bad and drawing too much current.
