Looking for Someone with a Beta Marine 20hp

I am looking for someone with a Beta Marine 20hp that can look at something on the engine and let me know where the wire goes.

I replaced a part and not 100% I put one of the wires in the correct spot.

Re: Looking for someone with a Beta Marine 20hp

Have you tried getting in touch with Beta directly? They are usually pretty good about answering questions. Also why not post up a photo or at least a description of what the exact part/problem in question is. I don't have the 20hp but I have the 5 series shop manual sitting here beside me.

Re: Looking for someone with a Beta Marine 20hp

I replaced my starter over a two week period.

There is a loom of 3 red wires that go to the starter, plus the battery hot wire.

One goes to the alternator for sure. Another is smaller. I have all of these on the starter pos terminal.

The third wire in the loom is much smaller and longer. I think this one goes to a ground on the starter bolts?

I looked at the page in the manual, but can't tell.

Jaybeegee, can you read my post above and check your starter wiring for me please?

Re: Looking for Someone with a Beta Marine 20hp

Are you able to upload a couple of pics (possibly via a link on flikr?) of the wires? It will be useful for me and I will be onboard over the weekend.
