I was installing the transom saver rubber, decide to pull the hood off the motor to check the oil level and saw this shit! http://i1220.photobucket.com/albums/dd448/NorthportTroller/Smileys/cry.gif

These 2 yellow wires go under the flywheel, I am assuming they have something to to with either the charging system or the ignition. http://i1220.photobucket.com/albums/dd448/NorthportTroller/Smileys/cry.gif

I need help scraping up some wiring diagrams guys if you will. It looks to me like the wire connectors got hot and burned up? it's only burned around the two sets of connectors as you can see. You think if I solder in some new wires and scrap the connectors it will be ok? The rest of the wires are fine, don't show any burning at all, just near the connectors. Help? http://i1220.photobucket.com/albums/dd448/NorthportTroller/Smileys/cry.gif

I am going to go back out and see if it fires up so I know the ignition is ok, and I guess check the wiring around the battery comp and test the batteries. This really sucks. http://i1220.photobucket.com/albums/dd448/NorthportTroller/Smileys/cry.gif

You didnt have any issues? If everything is still fine i just put new connectors on it and go with it. But i'd besure your charging system is working correctly.

I'd let it run on the water hose for awhile, while watching those wires.. If they get hot again... I bet you have a rectifier bad or something.

Do you notice the tach jumping around or anything?

Tach stopped working last summer, it definitely is the generator wires, I just cut out the burned connectors, and wired them together with new wire. All the other parts of the burned wires were fine. Volt gauge reads fine, I don't know. I am wondering if running it during the winter creates some kind of condensation in those connectors and it starts to corrode? I checked all the other harness connectors and they look fine, weird. I'll keep an eye on it now that I know that I had an issue and look for any signs. That is A/C current running through those wires to a module that converts it to D/C.

Here is the repairs, cut the burnt parts of wire and connectors, got a little heavier gauge wire to replace the run between the two points. My solder gun is shot. So I stripped the ends, twisted the wires to together, and crimped a butt connector to hold them together, acting like a wire nut, then taped them up nice and tight. I DID NOT USE THE BUTT CONNECTORS TO CONNECT THE WIRES AND ACT AS A CONDUIT, I just used them like a wire nut.
