Skip,
check your parts list. You also need the external tooth lock washer and the stud retaining ring.

The 1958 external plug harness will work on a 1957 or 1958 motor. The 1957 external plug harness will only work on a 1957 motor. I'm running a 7 pin external harness on my 1957 5 pin Evinrude.

I’ve been through this before. The pin assignments are different. The plug will fit, but you will quickly realize that one of the pins is in a dead hole and there is no way to make it work. I don’t remember exactly which pin it is. You need a 1957 external harness or swap both the internal and external harnesses to a 1958-61.

Nymarine.ca used to make new replacements. They are top notch. So much better than the homemade jobs. No offence intended to those running homemade harnesses. They just don’t look quite right.

That's a great price on a 1957 harness and junction box. The only thing missing on the plug is the wing nut screw that holds it onto the motor, however, they are still available new from Dan Gano the last time I needed one. This is just what Skip has been looking for.

Skip,
You must be referring to a 1957 OMC motor since 1957 motors came with 5 pin plugs. 1958 models came with 7 pin plugs. The 7 pin plug used in 1958 will work just fine on a 1957 5 pin motor. There will just be 3 wires you won't be using.

If you can post a picture of the end you need it to attach to I will see what I have.
I’m sure I pulled an old omc harness and junction box from a boat and might be able to get you the plug.
