  1. SORRY just read the post by YENPIT. THANKS that does clear things up !!!
  2. yes, car will start in gear(manual trans). There is a switch on the clutch pedal,Same as on the brake pedal,but not hooked up. Do u know how to hook-up? or is this for something else?
  3. did not use the wires for the emission stuff, throttle wire or the dual points. Got a electronic ignition & a holley carb with throttle cable.Did not have to use a jumper wire for the neutral safety switch, think i have a manual wiring harness on the car.Still have the issue of the car starting in gear with clutch out (5 speed manual). Have not had time to look @ this yet but hope to fix it proper.ALL other electrical stuff is working great,Quite happy. took car in for wheel alinement on Thurseday,& got insurance. FIRST time in 30 YEARS, car has been on the road!!
  4. been looking @ the wiring diagram sent to me by demo 243 & its all starting to make sense now.Did look earlier but didnt quite get it.Now it seems clear& think found answers to my own questions-looks like b connecting the green/yellowwire to one side of clutch swicth & the green on other end. And the blue/black wire spoke of earlier by glove box was for manual trans. Didnt get it earlier but now not only got the answers but understand it much better now.Dont think could have done it without all your help. Cheers!!

      cool, tried some other ones @ first but they were all taken. think "low tech" would b better suited for me. if its not taken can u make the change for me, or tell me how to ,please.

  6. Well then that all makes sense now. M amaze how much u guys know.Sure glad i got on this site. got my dash all back together,so will stick to the old manual harness for now. The clutch switch is not connected.Would u know what wires should go to it. the car has been peiced together, but think got a manual dash harness.Still got to check into the reverse lights too. Its got a 5-speed now.Just havent look,not too much of a concern now. And hey Banzai 510, in highen sight yea should have went with your suggestion,it would have been alot easier, its just that been reading bad stuff about SOME of t
  7. hey there, found the white tag, but cannot make out the #. For future referance, if it was for an automatic, what wires would need to b connected? The colours on the wires going to trans are; 2 black,2 black/blue & one blue/black.Dont have the sub harness.Tried looking @ wiring diagram, but was no help to me.
  8. well took my time & fixed old harness. Sodeird & used shrink tubes on all my connections & everything seems to b working as it was. Dont know if the replacement was for automatic or what the problem was, but just happy to have it working as it should without hoky. frustration level was getting high, so thanks for your suggestion to fix old harness. U guys r the best !! and happy motoring.
  9. did check the connection & all the colours did match EXCEPT for one extra blue black wire on a 3 wire plug. So its not an exact match. Not sure what u mean by bus bars under fuse box? Will take my time with repair(need coffee) on original harness & let u know how that goes. Thanks !
  10. good advice. Dont want hoky riding in my car. Yea u must b right, seem its not making right/ good connection ther by glove box. Been looking @ old harness and think i will make atempt to fix it. So what did u do to fix buddy car with that problem?
  11. thought about tring to fix old harness, but was burnt bad,not just the plastic but wires burnt in half & unsure how fare damage went. Checked & got power to the black/yellow wire @ ingntion when in start postion but getting no power to black/yellow @ starter? Going to try & get it working proper, but thinking of adding jumper wire from black/blue wire that went to coil to the starter.This makes it work for now. Will keep @ it.
  12. just about to head into the garage now. going to c if the is power to the black/yellow wire @ ignition, as Mike suggested & take it from there.The original harness got fried , mostly ground wires by voltage reg. That happened on my attempt to wire a saturn alt. in. Mixed-up wires, but found the mistake. M sure the electrial gods do not like me!!
  13. Thanks for the reply. Yes u r right the r not all the same. got another complete harness engine & dash & will try this one, except it has 7 plugs by glove box & the other had 6 plugs. got my fingers crossed & hopefully not my wires!!
  14. the one difference between the olds engine harness & the replacement is that,there is one extra wire where it plugs into dash harness.its a plug containing 3 wires . on the engine side it has a green/yellow ,yellow/green & a blue/black one. the dash side does not have the blue/black wire. the old harness did not have blue/black wire . there was just an empty spot in the plug. could this b the problem ??
