Quick favour - anyone with a Mercury Optimax 115 - 175hp

Any chance anyone could take some photos of the wiring connections under the cover of their mercury optimax engine for me? Working on it today and just need to see where the power cables connect to on my 2009 175hp optimax

Thanks!!!

Thanks Sparkey!

It looks like yours are connected on the connections in my photos below, positive to where shown on first photo and negative to where I have shown in second/third photo, that seem right? Thank you

Connecting to these worked, engine trimming up and down!! Thanks all!!

If someone with an Optimax 115-175hp wouldnít mind taking photos around the engine so I could see various connections that would be very helpful. Thanks again all that have helped!
