LOL....sorry for being Aussie, our wiring over here is different colors and that's the confusing thing. The black box is where the start button, fuses and the breaker switch is at the right of the engine... I cant load a pic for some reason, but it is the black box in the upper right corner of this pic off the web, sorry.
I apologize too; I had vaguely recalled that you may have been the one who purchased a U.S.A. boat with U.S.A. wiring and receptacles. Sorry about that.
Ok I do know where the black box is. But now I doubt I'll be able to help due to the wire coloring now!
No need...You are correct... it is the USA wiring (white, green and black) I am connecting to the 110v of the kohler. I am leaving it at these volts to run the USA electricals. Just pretend you are rewiring it back into your own boat.. :)
These color wires come from the boat and I just need to know where to connect in the box.
I think I am safe connecting the greens, it is just the black and white I am worrying about. I wish I was an electrician..... marine mechanic.... rich.... more careful when I buy things.... :)
Tested the fuel pump and it was dead. So I replaced it, spark plugs, oil and filter. Then I pulled the carbi off and cleaned it, when I thought I would check the automatic choke. Pulled it apart and the linkage inside is seized. I tried to free it but no luck and it doesn't want to start without the choke.
I then manually used the choke and it fired. Unfortunately I had to hold the start button in the on position, but it ran until it was released and seemed to run well apart from this. Half way there, just need to find out what is stopping it from running now with out the start switch on..
It seems these chokes are discontinued and you cant get rebuild kits for it. The following seems to be mostly the same, will it suit??
I got a loaner thread chaser from the autoparts store. It's strange, I chased the studs, and the holes to the point where the chaser goes in and out with my fingers, but as soon as I get one turn on...
