Hey all... I have wrapped up the rewiring of the truck, with one
exception: There's a small harness coming from the firewall through a
gromett next to the main fuse-block on the driver's side. It's got
blue, blue/black, and green wires.
My factory wiring manual lists it as going to "engine". If you trace
it back, it appears to be tranny related. On the side under the hood,
it plugs into another harness. That harness "Y's" off and has 2
connectors, one is a 4-pin connection (of which only 3 are used) that
probably went into a vacuum switch. The other connector is a 2-pin job
that looks like it also went to a vacuum switch. The 2-pin connector
What is this? Will it affect the tranny in any way? I'm betting not,
as none of my vacuum switches had any vacuum lines running to them
before the fire. The vacuum switches that survived the fire still do
not. (I may have just answered my own question, but it's 10:30pm, I'm
still waiting on dinner to arrive, and I'm damn tired... and I just
want to consult others before I decide that it's not necessary). How
is the converter-lockup connected to the brake pedal? Would this
harness be involved in any way?
I ask because there were many unidentifiable pieces of wiring under
there for some time, and I've just about figured it all out.
FWIW, the closest thing to my engine that the manual shows is a
California V6, where as mine was a Police K5, with a 305ci sold new in
