Default 2007 mercury 60hp 4 stroke wiring help

Iím working on a hanging a 2007 60hp 4cylinder 4 stroke for a friend. Nothing is labeled and I have everything hooked up but cannot figure out where the main hot wire from the battery goes on the engine. Can anyone give me any help or possible a picture? Any help is greatly appreciated!

Goes to the (hot) battery side terminal on the starter relay (solenoid). The other post on the solenoid should have a wire going to terminal on the starter. The wire with the RED insulator comes from the battery. The wire with the YELLOW insulator goes to the starter. Sorry the photo is on it's side, should be rotated 90 degrees clockwise. NOTE: This is located on the front of the engine, not the side of the engine. At least that is where it is on my 2007 60hp 4 cylinder four stroke Mercury engine.

Here is a you tube video on replacing a solenoid on a 50 hp mercury outboard.

I believe that the 60hp engine is very similar to the 50 hp engine.

Check the video at time stamp 3:30.

At this point, the fellow is checking for the presence of +12 volts main power under the Red cover on the side of the engine. This is the location where the + side of the Main battery is connected to this motor.

Check your motor for a similar look and its battery connection:

i.e. it will be on the port side of the engine - roughly midway between top and bottom of the engine.
