reverser cable locations

to be sure mine was hooked up correctly befoer I would like to know if anyone has the color codes of the cables off the reverser control unit, the positive is obvious, but looks like the ground could be confused with the cable that goes to the starter circuit

red = positive
tan =?

Re: reverser cable locations


According to my diagrams the wire that goes to the starter connection point behind the battery is a 10.0mm wire with Black/Yellow. But it also shows a 10.0mm black/yellow going to the ground tie point at the same time. And to the battery. Confusing.

Ok another version shows three 10.0mm wires one Black going to the starter tiepoint, one Red going to the battery and one Brown going to the ground tie point. These are 99-2001 diagrams.

The diagrams with the three black/yellow wires has foot note marks on each of the wires but no legend!!! And these are factory diagrams.
