I've been having a good look over the 225 Opti I've just purchased trying to familiarise myself with what goes where.
It doesn't help that the engine is currently laying on it's back on a pallet and it's not easy to see all of it.
I'm happy with the main 8 pin wiring harness plug and 4 single wires.
Also the Gear and Throttle controls.
But I have some questions that I can't find answers to in the installation part of the manual I have.
Easy one first.
This cable looks like an old accessory cable to me.
The plug end was coiled up in the tray, the other end was just cut off down by the saddle.
Can I assume it's for an old accessory??
Next I found this cable coiled up in the tray.
It has a label on it with part number 84-85924, which from a quick google appears to be something to do with the smartcraft gauge/system.
But the smartcraft cable I've been supplied with is the Blue one here and both ends have the connector shown with the purple inside.
The two are not compatible.
The smartcraft gauge has a socket on the back compatible with the Blue cable.
Have I been given an incorrect type of smartcraft cable, or does the Blue cable connect somewhere else on the engine?
If the Blue cable is correct, what's the 84-85924 cable for?
Then I tried to figure out where to connect the battery cables to.
I found this loose nut on what looks like a solenoid.
Could that be the +ve battery cable connection?
I also found a bolt on connection point on the starter motor solenoid that looks like a cable has been removed,
But it doesn't make sense that it's the -ve battery cable connection as I'd have thought that would be through the block.
So where do I connect the -ve battery cable?
Also I've found this cut off heavy cable.
The other end is connected to whatever this is at the top of the engine.
I'm a little annoyed about this one as it's obviously supposed to be connected to something, and having been cut off I'm going to have to make a new one.
Can anyone shed some light on any of the above?
