Ok, so it was tough to follow the power line back, but I "think" I've got it.
Black "hot" wire to 115v fuse.
White "neutral" to the receptacle in the coffin.
I just twisted the wires on to test. Powered up, no smoke, everything seems to work as before, or better.
I snipped the original power cord where the PO had spliced with a "new" cord. I wire nutted and taped that. (Yes, that's electrical tape)
I left all other wires attached as I'm not certain which runs to the switch, and from where. I'm trying to make it better, not create new issues at the moment.
Bowler gods, Any thoughts on my black/white wire locations before I solder?0819191024 (resized).jpg0819191032 (resized).jpg
