    I've recently purchased an older 20' w/t with a 3.0 mercruiser (gm l4) and the wiring in the boat itself is a nightmare which someone has felt the agony off defeat befor I acquired her.anywho if I could find a simple diagram for the wiring of the instruments(blower,bilge,nav lights,depth sounder,ignition,tilt,hour meter,acc.)i'd be a happy fisherman.the wiring in the engine compartmentis solid factory install with no problems.the vesell is powered by a solid 3.0 mercruiser with only 270hrs.(danm shame she was left to rott).if someone could help a brother out i'd appreciate it.

    Welcome to the forum.


    The very first thing to buy is a manual. The underdash stuff is pretty straight forward, if you're familiar with 12 VDC systems. If not, you might want to get some help.
