Mariner Wiring Loom Connector

The cable going to my 50EFi Mariner was cut in a botched attempt to steal the engine but fortunately there is enough spare length on the cable to allow it to be reconnected. However, to do this I need to attach the cable to the plug on the engine end terminating the cable in about a dozen pins.

How do you connect the various wires to this plug and also how do you remove the redundant ones or do I have to buy a new plug?

Many thanks.

Sorry to hear your news. A new Mariner loom won't be cheap, so I'd repair, unless you can justify going through insurance. Any other damage to warrant claim?

Joining wires together, then use heat shrink and glue connectors. Only make this repair if the wire can be pulled through so connections are under the engine cowl.

Its around 13 pins I guess and it is the plug under the cowling connecting the wire from the helm position to the engine.

Have thought that as a last resort I can connect the wires from the plug to the wire but I would like to rewire the plug or a new one.
