Would someone be able to tell me where the ground or earth wire is routed from the batteries and where it attaches or grounds too? Much appreciated, Cheers, Neil

Ok, great. I think I found it on the waterpump cover, at least that's where the remains of the old one is. I really appreciate that and will probably have a few more wiring questions in the near future as I piece this thing together.
Cheers.
