    Default yes clean wiring

    well it took a Sunday but the wiring on the motor is all new and super clean. a nice quick disconnect for the engine for easy removal. built a new wiring plate so its all nice and shiny. put plastic electrical covers over every thing. replaced all the wires and solenoid.

    I had all kinds of problems before I changed over my wiring. Now the biggest problem I have is everything is working as it should and on a boat thats rare! LOL

    Nice to have the lil Pig's tails especially on the wires home run to the dash. More than once I wished I had a little extra wire to re-do a connector on my old wiring (prior to making up a new harness and replacing it all).

    Need a little extra wire to re-do a corroded or frayed connector? Just tug on it to stretch the coils out a bit, or unravel a loop or two. A small coil can provide you with 3-5" of extra wire and it still looks fairly neat.

    I typically carry along extra connectors, but leave my cable/wire stretcher at home.

    An old timer showed me that one. Mighty handy.

    On the dash end rather than doing the pig tails I used two little terminal blocks for ground (black wire) and key'd 12 volts (purple wire). That way if something goes to hell, you can just replace the wire from the block to whatever device and it'll only be a foot long or less. Also cleans it up some and you don't have one wire jumping continuously to every device. This also gives you more places to tie things into at a later time, rather than scabbing power off the back of a gauge, the keyswitch, or butt splicing in somewhere. That's where wiring always seems to get messy.
