Hello everyone. I have a 270 that's wasn't looked after before me so I'm currently restoring it. Just rebuilt the 496, new Transom assy, harness..etc..etc. There was a green bond wire attached to a 10/32 stud below the inner Transom plate and above the garbord. This stud was screwed into the Fiberglass, and poorly at that. The stud no longer has any grab so I removed it and ran the bond to the metal bracket that holds the trim pump. What is the point of a bond wire attached to fiberglass? This is an insulator. I have a few green wires attached to fiberglass. This I do not understand.
