    Good morning all,

    I have a 1996 Sundancer 330 DA with the Westerbeke 4.5 BCG setup. Long story short, I managed to bend a valve on it and had to do a rebuild on it last winter.

    During removal... my shop who did the removal nor I decided to take note of the wiring in which runs from the remote panel in the cabin to the generator in the bilge on the block.

    Westerbeke provides the wiring diagram for the generator, not the specific boat. I have contacted SeaRay and apparently they do not posses this anymore and from research this is an issue. I was essentially told to find an exact duplicate of my boat and copy the wiring diagram. I did this on the facebook groups and unfortunately that did not work.

    All last summer I ran the jumper to override the remote panel, I would have to open the bilge, fire up the generator and then close the bilge. Only in order to shut it off... rinse and repeat. Super not fun.

    I have attempted using a multi-meter with electrician friends who we ended up getting close but are not there yet. We can make the generator, start and run, but only while holding down the *START* momentary switch. The second you let off the *START* she will shut down.

    Does anyone happen to have a diagram for this? Or can make me one? I will gladly compensate you for your time. It HAS to be a 96 330DA and it HAS to be a 4.5 BCG apparently.

    I can upload photos of the existing wiring if need.

    Thank you all.

    I would like to add that we thought we were chasing a false ground, in which randomly we would blow the glass fuse in the system as the ground would also tease us and move when she started which would possibly be part of the halon system or something else?
