I mean WTF does anybody really go by that chart ? i mean if you wire your own boat who cares what color the wires are as long as you know it....RIGHT ???
And i see no reason to make it easier on the next guy >:D

am i gonna break a forbidden law by not going by the color chart........ If so , just call me a cowboy baby :D

My color code bitches......

Oil = black

Water = Blue (temp)

Alt/gauge  = yellow for current ;D

Alt charge wire = red cause it fits with the other red wires on the thingy ma bob :sly:

Ign = green..... Green means go.......

Ballast = orange cause i have alot of it.....

Solenoid to starter.... I dunno , i have not picked that color yet....    Maybe orange , cause i have alot of it ;D


Tach = Grey  because i actually have the right color for it ;)

Battery cables 2 red and 1 BlACK.....Duh!!!!!

Get the picture

this is how  Savage racing wires shit......... easy and quick.......


Any questions O0

What about making it easy on anybody who helps you when your floating with no spark? Going universal is always a better idea.

you have done such an awesome job so far, not cutting corners and doing everything the "right" way! why stop now....wires cheap!

 Yeah sounds good.....

So when you wire your boat , you can do it politically correct ;)  Checking for spark.   Thats funny.... :D

I dont think  that im "cutting corners" i am just using what i have on hand..( left over from the Bahner :'( ) and since im doing ALL the work myself and if i have a problem and a imaginery friend shows up to help....

i think i can explain what is what in about 45 seconds ;)

Having a history in automotive and heavy trucks didn't prepare me for seeing a bundle of about 40 wires in a motorhome harness that were all yellow

The other option is use all black wire and put a ring of the correct color electrical tape at the termination point.

The tape is cheaper than 5 spools of wire.

Ummmm, (Hand Raised), I have a question........If you'uns don't mind.

Why does MY boat's factory harness not match the color code either?

Twas why I researched every friggin wire in the thing with a DMM and was puzzled why the Oil Pressure guage went nuts.

I'm with 2Sav, make all the wires the same color and make the next Baztard figure'em out! >:D

Ok now im getting cables made for this set up on monday and just want to double check.. i dont want cables made and they end up being to short/long :sly:


So on this diagrahm it shows the wire to power the boat,alt, Batt cable, and starter cable all on one terminal.... Is this correct ?

I had an old tbird and the battery cable and starter cables were one on each side of the soleniod , maybe im over thinking this again..


Boat is completely wired except for battery and starter cables ;D

And no , you wont find no purple wire on my boat ;)
