Just bought a F150XB...

Just bought a F150XB outboard and a 6Y8 multi function tachometer separately. need help connecting the wires. no wiring diagram was included. nearest dealer over 500 miles south from where I live

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes boat issues seem like they'll be really complicated, but end up being easy to fix. The Marine Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so the Marine Mechanic can help you best.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Marine Mechanic should know?
