far as i can recall the hour meter gets the blue wire, i "think" the other wire (ground wire) is black but it gets powered all the time when the key is on, it does not run off the alternator like with outboard engines.
if the lights have an on/off switch then any time the key is on they are on unless the switch turns them off. im pretty sure the lights run off the same blue wire circuit as the hour meter. if the lights dont have an on/off switch then they connect to the alternator orange power wire but after the engine main plug it turn into blue wire and a green wire for ground
in short you cant go wrong if you tap off the key switch power to feed both
You can only learn if you ask the question, so there are no dumb questions.
