Merc 90 charging system terminal block
We still have the pleasure of working on a Merc 3 cylinder 90hp. w/jet on a aluminum river work boat.
We got the flywheel off with the factory puller and replaced the dead stator and now we have spark. It had a broken magnet in the flywheel
In the Merc factory Repair manual's pictures I see we have a 16amp (small voltage reg-having 5 wires in/out)
The (gray) Terminal Block has one of its end terminals broken off. The yellow stator/regulator wires.
Since this boat doesn't have a Tachometer could I just solder the wires together and by pass 1/2 of the terminal block?
I've got some liquid Neoprene sealer to cover the soldered and taped eyes on the wires when I'm done.
