Still having difficulty with pictures.

Looking from the back of the motor to the front, what is the thing to the right of the oil pressure sensor? The negative wire was a dead end and I'm having difficulty finding it on the drawing. I think its the reverse light switch but im not sure?

The harness is mostly put back together. Just have some more light wiring on non engine harness stuff that was damaged to fix then redo some fuel line

I though the 440 only came with the 727 transmission and that reverse switch is mounted right near or on the shifter pod on the transmission, driver side just above the pan. Three pins the best I recall. Send me a picture to my email. [email protected]

I see the 18or/bk wire but I think thats mounted on the front of my engine. I unscrewed the 3 prong outlet in question and it goes into the same chamber as the oil pressure sensor.

The oil pressure sensor has one white wire going to it reflected in the diagram . And the 3 prong connector in question only utilizes 2 prongs, red/pos and blue/neg, these were the colors it had before and I kept those colors after. Im simply not finding it on the diagram.

I'm going to continue with the other final things and worst case scenario I just try to start it without that connected.

Got everything buttoned up minus the connector and a bolt I dropped. Cranked it over to see what would happen and it appears I need a new starter relay.
So far not too pretty bad.

It is possible that it is not getting full 12 volts to energize it. Neutral safety switch?
Wasn't able to get hold of neighbor kid for the red and black wired sensor. Still trying!
Just saw on 8-159, top right diagram shows a red and black for the neutral safety switch.

Cleaned battery connections and starter connections, re cleaned everything on the relay. Still nothing. Bypassed the relay qnd it cranks but didn't start. Pulled a spark plug and found i dont have spark even bypassing the relay. I had a spare coil with me so put that in but no better.
Having problems with my multimeter to. Jyst put new batteries in it and its showing low batt.

Will continue searching

The voltage regulators connector was melted inside so I made some temporary connections to it but still no spark. There was a new ecu in a box when I bought the rv so I put that on and still no difference.

Any thoughts on what else may have gotten too hot?

Where im at now is to try a totally new coil and ballast resistor tomorrow and more batteries for my multimeter because its been useless for this
