    787 No Spark (97 SPX)

    I got this 97 SPX w/ 787 that's been submerged for at least a day now.

    It will crank, but there is no spark at all.
    Some clown ripped of the single wire coming out of the intermediate harness (rear ebox).
    I've got about 5 inches of wire coming out of the rear ebox, but I do not know where it needs to go.
    Is this perhaps connected (no pun intended) to the no spark issue?
    Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

    if its the little black wire, then yes. it needs to be connected to the ground on the battery

    hook that wire up, pull the plugs and get that water out. i assume you mean submerged in water! if so, you must start it immediately.


    just crimp a 14gage x 1/4" electrical lug on there and put it on the negative screw before threading into the battery terminal.
