    Do you mean the wire connector that go into the distributor?

    There is one connector from the coil and one that goes into the main wiring harness. Tomorrow I can get a wiring diagram to figure out the orange wire from the distributor. Its probably not a ground. Did you check for spark?

    i didn't check for spark cuz it started before.i did unplug it tonight and had to use a lighter cuz i droped the flash light.( a $70.00 dive light /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif).from what i could see there is only three wires going into the skinny harness, but there was a small orange one that i can't identify.there is also an orange one already plugged in. i just need to know if there is three or four wires going into that harness. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gifto /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif
