Default Re: Planning Engine Swap

Manifold should arrive this week and I hope it's what I can use. Going to wire wheel the surface and spray it with high temp primer and paint

Manifold bolts are M8 x 1.25, either 18MM or 20MM long

I have new gaskets and Ultra Copper RTV

Ok so the red wire goes to the battery, since It's the battery charge wire. Can it also go to the same post on the starter solenoid that is connected to the big red battery wire? Or direct to the battery is better?

Should the starter solenoid have a ground wire to the frame or to the battery?

If the solenoid is on the engine, then no other connection is needed. You will need a ground cable from the engine to the battery though, I typically use one of the main engine mounting bolts. Some will also ground the frame of the cart to the battery as well.
