New Product - DC circuit replacement kit for the Atomic 4

This kit has been designed to completely re-wire the Atomic 4 DC power distribution system. Each kit includes a wiring diagram, instructions, terminals, and sufficient lengths of wire to reach cockpits as far as 18 feet from the engine. The wire has been color-coded and sized to comply with ABYC standards.

Estimated time required to complete the rewiring project: approximately 1/2 day.

Mauricio,

Welcome to the forum. Where is Chicxulub???

I personally like Nigel Calder's Book. Here is a link to it on Amazon.com.

Thumbs up Leave it to MM!

I like that wiring kit, Excellent...

Welcome to the forum Mauricio...

+1 on Shawn's recommendation.
One comment though; One would think that with as many sailboats that were manufactured and sold with A4's in them that Mr. Calder would have included a respective amount of content on the A4.

Thanks MM for for all you do.

Welcome Aboard
Where in the Yucatan are you? I've been to Merida and around a bit.
The drawings and schematics section of the forum will help. There is quite a bit about electrical in there.

Mauricio-
Primero, recepción al foro.
La recomendación de Shawn del libro de Nigel Caulder es buena.
Sugiero que usted lo consiga. ¿Quizás el Amazonas tiene una versión española también?
También estoy adjuntando un esquema eléctrico de Don que pueda ayudarle

Just a suggestion

Hmm... my A4 has been (I presume) re-wired at some point with a pre-made wiring harness leading to the instrument panel. It has all the proper-colored (but maybe not proper gauge) conductors made into a cable with QD's at the end. I assume that it's after-market because there are several coils of slack zip-tied up in the lazarette. I wonder where it came from?

Anyway, it seems as if a nice way to do it might be such a cable (with the proper gauges of wire) AND a fuse box / terminal strip for either end all set up for the proper fuses or circuit breakers. At least, that's what I'm aiming for.

I have a couple of harnesses that came with the engines I bought, everything connected to the engines I get, prop, shaft, harness , panel, fuel tank , mounts. I think the harness you have is just the universal harness that came with the engine, all of mine came with plenty of extra harness all coiled up and tied off. The builder does this I think rather than cut and risk messing up the harness and connecters.
