Default Gas and Fuel Valve ECU Connection

Rookie Question. When connecting the Fuel and Gas JR type connections to the ECU (Holding the ECU in front of you with the letters ECU clearly seen and right side up) which way are the connectors seated into the ECU (red to the left, brown to the right or brown to the left and red to the right)? It looks like the connection could be made either way. Many thanks for your help. Chic

Chic:

When connecting Gas and Fuel solenoid valves to the ECU, there is NO orientation issue. Just plug (insert) into correct slot for solenoid. Fuel to fuel and gas to gas.

Regards,
Eric

Eric, thanks for the information. it seems that a piece of black plastic is partly covering the slot, looks like I may need to cut a sliver to get both of the JR connectors in.

Hello guys, me, the rookie, again. I have a JR 8 3/4" type cable with male connectors on both ends. It was in a bag labeled ECU. Need help because I have no idea where it goes or how it is used. I do not see it referenced in the manual. Sorry to bother, just want to do things right. Chic

Hello redtail
If you have a regular JR connector (3 holes for pins) it is better to cut the JR connector to just 2 holes, that is easy to do with knife

Juan, many thanks for the hint. After pulling my head out of my a**, and giving a careful review of the manual and the schematics, I figured out what the connection is for. It is the cord that provides power to the ECU from the receiver power. Lessons learned. Thanks guys.
