Re: Mercury outboard complete rewire

The motor plug to control harness you will not find. So do a hard wire to all the parts. The plug-in harness was for faster rigging when new.Only problem I can think of is the stator wires ( yellow/red ) maybe a pain to tap into with new. :shock: And the trigger wires (same thing ) :shock: Try to fi...

I took a friend for a ride and wa...
