yeah, reverse voltage on a DC motor will not hurt it, and with the pump sitting in a small container of fuel, you would have known within 2 seconds which wire is for +12
I am always trying to guess what a "black wire" is.... sometimes it is ground which is usually the case on DC systems.
other times, it is the HOT wire in A/C systems... which I always thought was a stupid thing to do... why in the hell didn't NEMA fix that back in the dark ages???
In my house, the electric is all black, every single strand if it is not part of a piece of Romex. the electrician was an idiot... he pulled in a circuit, hooked it up, and moved on.... to hell with documentation or colored tape.
I have spent days of tracing out the wiring in my house, and using a Tapewriter to label the switches. and I still have more than half of them to go.
24 circuits, all black, no labels.
