Leave the wire alone. Not an exciter wire. I'm not sure what it does either and I have the same on my boat. If the alternator is charging, then all is hooked up correctly.

I would test your Raw Water Pump first. It's easy to do compared to ripping everything apart and not knowing what may have failed.

You are right. Idle screws only effect idle and the transition to off-idle.

#4 & #8 are slightly tan-er, but all look good. Plugs do not look that old. They have not been in that engine that long.

Correct. 351 at 5500 rpm does not flow much more than 475 CFM (at .85% Volumetric Efficiency). 750 CFM just drowns the engine needlessly.
