Hey guys I'm in the process of putting my pirates back together and I have two issues.

The connector for the spinning disk motor has a little light diode that needed replacing, I replaced it but forgot to take a picture before pulling the leads out of the connector so I don't know which lead goes in which spot. There is two brown wires but one has a blue stripe. I was hoping someone with a pirates could look under theirs for me. mummite pinnyheadhead

Additionally I don't know on the harness side where the spinning disk motor connects to... thank so. I have for any help

Page 97 you have the motor wiring. Brown-Blue should go to J8-7. The color in the male connector should match the color in the female anyway. Or am I missing something?

Thanks lb1 I think i got it right take a look at the pic.

One other thing i noticed, is i have a stray purple wire into a connector, only a single lead, i'm going to assume this is a spare power source as i don't believe it was in use / connected to anything previously.

Looks like J7-10 Violet Gray / Optional 5V. You can probably verify it by looking at where it ends at the female board connector end.

Looks like the Q24 lead. Knocker or ticket dispenser.
