    I have a '75 Tom Sawyer sterndrive. I am having a time trying to figure out the 45 yr. old wiring. As of now, the only items working properly working are:
    1) Engine compartment exhaust fan 2) Bilge Pump 3) Fuel Gauge 4) Speedo and
    Tach 5) Ignition.
    NOT WORKING: a) Oil Pressure Gauge b) Voltage Gauge c) Horn. NONE of the
    lights ( dash, stern pole lite, outside stern lite (for the ladder), any
    concealed accessory lamps under the dash, motor compartment and down
    both inside walls. The Bow lamps work, but cannot be shut off, except for
    disconnecting the battery.

    I've been searching for a schematic w/o any success.

    Any Ideas? :confused:
