"Hello me again..
Thanks for the wire link'er JB, is a good one. I definately am no electrician. This may be asking alot, but I have to try- So here goes nothin..
The old plug harness (1966-merc650) has (6) wires. Red, Black, Yellow, White, Green, Brown.
The new plug has 12 wires, 4 of which re-surface at the hind end of the actual male plug to be connected. This was a 8-pin male to female 2ft extension harness. I bought and cut in half to gain the male plug end I needed to make engine connection.
These (12) wires are: Red, Black, Brown, Green, Purple, Yellow/Black, Yellow/Red, Black/Yellow, Brown/White, Brown/Black, Blue/White, & Green/White.
The colors that resurface on opposite end next to plug end are: Brown, Brown/White, Green/White, & Blue/White.
Control box(6 wires)---------wire---------6 ends.
(12 wires)------wire--------(4wires & 8pin male) to make engine connect..
If anyone knows please help. As I hope I can accomplish this with the new plug end. I possibly need the whole harness front to back?? Please say no, ($$$). If so then, so be it..($next week!) Many thanks to anyone that has the time or patience for this.
You are good people..
