Hello Craig. My name is Tan.

Do you have any wiring in the boat now? What is the make and model of the engine. I know it is a 4.3 but who's? OMC or Mercruiser?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Merccruiser yes most of it to the engine but nothing from the battery the harness is been cut out nothing going anywhere from the battery nothing
Expert:  Tan replied 8 months ago.

Ok Are the wires on the engine still connected?

The only wire that run to the battery from the engine are the positive battery cable connected at the large post of the starter. Then the black negative ground cable that connects to the engine block.

Where was the harness cut at the engine or after the engine?

Expert:  Tan replied 8 months ago.

Here is a diagram of the harness from engine to dash.

Here is a diagram of the engine wiring. This is a diagram of a v8 but the v6 is the same.

Post back with question on the wires you don't have a place for or need to know where they go.
