I have a 2003 F7 which needed a chassis swap. When i removed the engine there was a dangling wire that i assumed was a ground. Fast forward to now, i've replaced all the bulbs, lights now work. Sled runs great, does have a bit of an inconsistent sputter at WOT and the gauge goes hay wire at the same time, again, inconsistent, it doesn't happen every time. Wondering if someone can get me pictures, of where the grounds are located?
After my research, there is a ground from the recoil cover to the chassis, and one from the harness to the back side of the cases?
Any help much appreciated.

Yeah the one ground wire at the front right goes from the chassis to the recoil.
then there should be two ground wires that come from the wire harness that comes out the bottom of the engine. I think those are suppose to go to the engine case or maybe one goes to the chassis.
I just did a motor swap and the two ground wires that came out of the motor I wasn't exactly sure where to ground them. So I grounded them to the recoil and then added another ground wire from that same spot to the chassis. So those two wires that come out of the bottom of the engine are grounded to the engine block and to the chassis. I think all that really matters is everything is grounded well.
when I put the wires on the recoil to ground them I put them on the back side of the recoil housing so they are sandwhiched between the block and the recoil. I also used dielectric grease.
