Here are some answers to get you started. I will give you more complete answers tomorrow as I am traveling today. I'll also send you directly a few photos tomorrow.
need to disconnect the ground cable from the SSB power contacts behind the lower charttable sidepanel. Yes. It is labeled BLU. You need to disconnect the yellow/green twisted 2 wires from the block. Without an SSB (BLU) these wires connect the ground plates to Amel Bonding.
where can i pick up the ground cable from the groundplate, to ground the antenne tuner? and should this of the flat rass type ? There is a copper foil from the ground plate ending inside the starboard side of the aft lazerette.
is the isolated antenne cable between the masts suitable for the SSB ? No. It is not. Wrong length and the antenna needs to be very close to the antenna tuner.
what anttenne is used for SSB, isolated backstay of mizzen mast , or stand alone 6m flex rod type? All or any will work.
