I need help fixing what a "mobile mechanic" tried to fix on my boat please.
Long story short: PO put the battery conections on wrong at the solenoid and starter, fried starter,battery,coil and condensor.
I bought the pertronix kit to convert it after I got the starter and solenoid and coil replaced. I have a yellowish wire that has 12volts switched and I found a tan wire labeled resistor. I ohm'd out the resistor wire and it was good,connected on the S terminal of the solenoid but if it tie the Yellow wire with the positive wire from the coil and red off the ignitor,as soon as i turn the key it starts cranking( not in the start position). I thought I must have a bad switch so i got a new one and it does the same thing. I know something has to be off but i can't figure it out. Anybody have some pointers?
