Subject: Rebuilding Wega Mini Nova - Electrical
 

I am just on the last stages of rebuilding my Wega Mini Nova (pre 2002)
It was unused for more than 5 years and in storage for a short time (trunk of car.) The frame had some corrosion, and some of the fittings had leaked, so I took it apart and cleaned it.

I will edit my post and put up more pictures, but right now I need help connecting the last of the electrical connections.
I had pictures of all the electrical connections, except the wires that go to the pump. Through the process of elimination, I know which wires go to it, but not the exact order.

I can't post external images?

Pic of connector

The white wire is just a ground wire that attaches to the frame, so I made an educated guess how to connect it (to the green wire with yellow stripe.)

I ordered some high temp shrink wrap and mesh wrap, so I don't have it all arranged nicely.  The only other thing I need to do is tighten the plumbing connections. I am waiting for some bushing I ordered so I will probably have to disconnect some of it anyways before I am done.

edit: after looking at the wiring in a machine (Izzo Alex) someone posted on Home Barista, I think what I will do next is replace all the wiring with better heat resistant wire. I am in school taking aircraft maintenance, so I will see if I can get some good wire from there, preferably the same colors as the original wires.

without pictures, you will need to get schematics to figure it out.  I don't have that machine or experience with it, or I'd post something for you.  Goodluck with the rest of your project.
