1969 Evinrude 55 hp dies hot then won't restart.

I have a 1969 Evinrude 55 hp that dies when hot and then won't restart. Only thing not replaced is the amplifier (now called CDI). Did find wire from amplifier to thermo switch has melted insulation, but wire seems to be intact.

Has anyone had this happen or does anyone know what might be wrong. Seems that if amplifier were bad it wouldn't run at all.
