When I pulled the console on my Outrage, I ended up disconnecting a huge rats nest of wires coming from my 1999 Honda 130, with the only fuse going to the running lights so, I'm thinking I need to redo it all.

Before I started the motor was hooked up directly to one of the batteries and then the two other leads went under the com where they plugged into another harness which then broke into other mazes of wires that ended with connectors which went to other wires that went to the instruments.

It would really be nice if I had a diagram showing what each wire was for on the original sets of wires coming from the motor.

Where would I find such a diagram.

The factory service manual for your motor should show what
each wire was for.

I'm surprised there were that few wires. My Evinrude 90 has
17 wires from the engine to the console.

Yes each lead is actually a bundle of wires. I have the service manual but it looks like Greek to me.

To be honest: If the service manual is Greek, get some help,
and do a LOT of chasing wires and labeling things as your
take it apart.

The good news is that I suspect the engine-related stuff will
be in good shape and you may not need to do anything but
unsnarl things one wire at a time.
