Hello, My outboard is a 2004 2 stroke 40Hp Yamaha, manual start, hydro tilt model.
i have purchased part # 6H2-81960-10-00 regulator rectifier because i would like to charge a 12v battery on the boat.
The regulator has a black, red and 2 green cables coming off them, i gather the 2 green plug into the stator under the flywheel.
Does the black Earth cable bolt down anywhere on the engine block or do i have to run a black lead to the (negative) on the 12v battery?
I also take it teh Positive cable from the rectifier has to run directly to the (+) on the battery.
Sorry for the question but i would like to get it right before i connect it up.
