Help Tip: If you have a question that has not been answered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum members.

Below are some additional forum policies in hopes of all iboats members will follow, Thank you.

1. Please do not reply to old topics or hijack existing topics. Old topics of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

2. Old topics should be considered archives and used for reference only. Please do not reply to them.

3. Do not take over someone elseís topic (aka hijack) with your own question, even if it is similar. If you have a question that has not been covered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new topic of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the topic is over 30 days old, send the OP a PM, he may not even visit the forums any longer, or may not notice your question in the old topic.

5. By starting your own topic, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum helpers that may not even notice your question when itís posted at the end of someone elseís topic. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to topics that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any topic that remains inactive for that long should be considered "dead". It is especially confusing when there is an entirely new question posted to an old topic.

7. Posting at the end of any topic is considered to be hijacking the original posters topic which in turn subjects the topic to be closed if it continues to happen thus not making it fair to the original poster in the future had for some reason he/she needed to return for additional information or provide an update of the problem solved which is always welcomed within a reasonable amount of time frame.

8. Please note that you should see a red banner pop up near the bottom of each inactive topic asking you not to reply to old topics. The Red banner will read: Please note this topic has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new topic.

Thank you all in advance for doing your part in helping iboats run a smooth ship.

        What is the vacuum switch hooked up to and are the wires both hot. I have a red wire with a white stripe and a red wire with a yellow stripe. I donít know what to connect them to.

          This motor does run fine without the vacuum switch hooked up. I do have a wire diagram but the parts that the wires looked like they went to are no longer on this engine. So they must have by passed the switch.

            I did look at the switch today and the battery wire coming from the battery to the switch is hooked to the switch marked b. The wire coming off the selonoid to the switch is hooked to the s terminal on the switch and the wires that are hot for all the gauges are hooked to the accessory terminal on the switch. That is it as far as the switch goes...

              Sure, that is it as far as the switch goes. EXCEPT you failed to mention a wire between the ACC terminal and the pulse pack. Is it there or not there?

                I am not sure what you mean, when you say between. Are you asking about a wire between these two points of the switch or somewhere else on the motor? Coming from where and going where?

                    I did find that my battery ground wire needed to be fixed because the insulated rubber was worn so i wrapped it with electrical tape.

                            Fact ------Your motor is no longer the way it left the factory !----Folks with up up 50 years experience gave / offered excellent advice !-----You do not follow advice and wander off in other directions with your own ideas.------This is often the case when a thread goes to 50 posts or more.------Find an old time grey haired mechanic to help you as was suggested already !
