I have just pulled out from storage an engine that was laid up some years ago. I have never seen it run, but i know the guy i got it from, and that it was a runner before being laid up correctly.
I cant seem to find a wiring diagram that shows the wiring i have got. Model No is : 40 BA76R
so im assuming its a 1976 model and that the BA denotes AC lighting and rope start?
There is rope start,but im unsure of the AC. There is a pressure switch designed to stop the engine running away, and this has to be disconected to get a spark if the leg is not in the water.
Im not sure if the 3 wires that run down to a rubber 3 pin socket in the tray is for the AC lighting or a remote switch? The 3 wires run back to a terminal block and connect to both coil packs and the third wire running up with a few more into the underside of the fly wheel.
I dont know if there are any other kill switches or saftey cut outs im not aware of. Without finding the correct wiring diagram for the engine,im at a bit of a stand still.
I can post some pictures of the wiring if needed, but if anyone is familiar with these engines, i would appreciate some guidance. I get conflicting reports that these were good/bad engines, but i think a single carb ,low rev, big displacement motor should be simple to keep going!
Cheers in advance. Ian
