60hp Evinrude issues
Following my recent thread on "what size is this engine" I can confirm that it is infact a 60hp Evinrude, with VRO (although this has been disconnected). I want to get the motor running but all the wires have been disconnected from the control box so I am left with a number of coloured wires which I need to identify in order to a: get it running and then b: get it wired back up to the boat. I have the following colours to choose from:
Black (this is the only one I can identify!)
So, my question is, what is the function of each wire?
Also whilst we're on the subject, I want to find out the year of the engine. It's a VRO model so it can't be thhhaaatttt old - I'm thinking mid-eighties (very possibly 1986 as thats the year of the boat it came off). Unfortunaly the plate on the saddle bracket has come off at some point so the serial number is missing. However there are some numbers printed on the powerhead which I hope/assume also corrispond to a year. They are as follows: BJ50BELCUD G7432329
