    Rebuilding 2004 RXP from a box of parts

    okay, so we buy salvaged things. We got an RXP for a great price with a thrown rod through the block, with all the parts in boxes. Got the block fixed, new supercharger with metal washers, new exhaust. We have everything back in the hull, but when connecting the lanyard, nothing. It is completely dead. I'm going to take some pictures and post them in awhile. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks ahead of time guys!

    I can't ground it to the motor mount on the bottom in between the Allan screw and the washer?

    Did you fix this?

    That point is insulated to the engine by the rubber on the mount. There is no electrical conductivity to the engine.

    Look at the 2nd picture in post 14. You will see 3 bolts below the serial plate. That is the correct earth point.
    You can get your arm around and bolt the cable to that. It is difficult but it can be done.
