Hello All -
We just picked up a new toy for our boys to play with in the bay.
1974 13'4" Whaler with 1982 50hp Merc OB, 4 cyl, 2 stroke, remote controls.
Takes me back to the days I caught the boating bug!
I noticed unusual wiring (inside and outside the motor) upon purchase, but sometimes a deal is to good to pass up!
Immediately changed out the original fiberglass fuel tank and rebuilt carbs to be safe - ran great for many days.
last run, the wiring acted up and burnt after the longest and highest RPM run.
i have a Seloc manual which contains wiring diagrams, however the manual contains no information regarding wire material to use with the wiring diagram info.
My question: Where can I access wire gauge and type information for the rectifier, stator, and cranking motor systems??
I feel like a tourist posting this thread....have never done it before, hope I have provided sufficient information!!!
Any information or referral will be of great assistance..Thank you all!!!
May the sun always be on your face, and the wind upon your back...hope to see you on the water!
