So is there a problem or are you just trying to figure out what the box does? I know you don't want to believe it but I too think it has something to do with your ignition. It sounds like the only way you're going to find out is by opening up the wire harness. I have a feeling once you do you're going to find 2 wires running to some sort of a trigger somewhere.

So, the little black box was a part of the old RE "Black box" system? The newer "Green box" doesn't use it.
So even tho the black box was inop, we were technically right about it's purpose. Glad you got it figured out. Did you eliminate the extra wires?Scottie
& continue on up that great lump of wires that goes forward under the tank & into the nacelle. I think I'll count those wires that go forward. There's a huge shitload of them (my shovel runs on about 7 wires).
Hey Tooseevee, i am glad you figured out the much ado about nothing problem . And no more whining about your poor sore fingers. Here in Michigan we call this time of year "rotted splice season". I have spent all week tracing and repairing salt water soaked wiring. It would boggle your mind how one tiny nick in the insulation of a CAN wire can stop an $100,000 SUV dead in it's tracks.ROVERman, get it!
Colour me humbled.
I believe the pulser coil is in with the generator. It's the green and white wires coming out of the motor. Could that box be the starter auto cutoff?
It wouldn't boggle my mind at all. I understand perfectly. I've done stuff like that & worse, in the cold, my whole life since I grew up in Wyoming & then spent since 1959 mostly on the East Coast freezing some more
Tooseevee, gotta ask, when and where were you growing up in Wyoming?Bare
