Honda bf225 help ( negative batt on engine)

Hi,

I've recently installed my bf225 on the Atlantic 21.
I can't for the life of me locate where the negative batt connects on the engine. I'm no marine engineer and don't confess to being one, just thought if one of you fine gentleman could show me a picture of where it should go that would be much appreciated and speed up the restoration.
Is it as simple as to the side of the block etc
Many thanks
Ben

Almost certainly, or to a starter motor bolt if they're meaty enough

Didn't want to put it in the wrong place so thought anyone with a picture I where there's is would put my mind at ease :-)

I think my Yam F115 goes to a lug on the block. The block itself (and all metal-to-metal attached peripherals, like starter) is all negative ground, but it's isolated from the rest of the motor (or near enough so as not to be trustworthy to form a ground return.)
