Title: BBF mini starter wiring
Post by: flames on May 14, 2019, 08:08:50 AM
I am installing a mini starter on my boat. The stock starter has three wires red to the battery a tan and a yellow. The new starter has a place for 2 one is the battery. How do you wire this up or what wire do you use. I attached pics of old starter

Jet Boat Engine Harness Diagrams
 Here are 4 different engine harness diagrams, complete with wire gauge and colors.

Two of them show points ignition w/1 wire and 3 wire alternators.

The other two show HEI ignition w/1 wire and 3 wire alternators.

If you're using an aftermarket ignition such as an MSD, be sure and follow their instructions for wiring the box to the distributor.

If you're using an MSD R2R distributor by itself:
Black = Ground
Red = Ignition Hot & (+) terminal of coil
Orange = Tach Signal & (-) terminal of coil
No ballast resistor required

Iím not an expert. There are alternate ways to wire it depending on what you have. Mine has always had the aux solenoid so it was easiest to keep it.  Check out the diagrams a listed previously in that long post and Iím sure youíll have some experts pipe in soon.
