Think I found something-Red-battery+;black ground;green tach;yellow ignition on 12v;orange trim sensor;pink oil overheat.my immediate question is does the red battery + hook to battery or voltmeter?God-it helps being colorblind.

Chug

I think the red goes to volt, the black is a common ground for the all of the instruments. I think you're correct on the rest.
