    97 780 SLT electrical box mount

    I purchased a basket case ski where all the parts were in the hull. I chose to purchase a complete motor for it instead of rebuilding the original because I didn't know what shape the crank was in. The top half was burned up with the middle cylindar destroyed. On inspection the cranks seems fine.

    Anyway, since I got it in the shape I did, I installed the new engine and it is completely back together. Only thing I am not clear on is how the battery and electrical box mounts. I have a bracket with two tall wingnut bolts but the stern one does not tighten down the battery tight and I do not see a way to mount the electrical box like on my SL. There is no bunge cords. Does it mount to the bulk head with bolts? Anybody have a picture of how this mounts?

    Did you look at the Polaris Industries online parts diagrams?

    Make sure the plastic battery cover is in place.

    What size battery do you have in there?

    Yeah saw those. I think the battery bolts are full of sand maybe and need to be cleaned. I need a picture of the electrical box mounted in a ski. It is hinting toward that it is mounted to the back of the bolt head or maybe it is just showing the grommit for the wires to pass through.
