That green plug next to the M/C plug is for diagnostics only. You hook up a dwell meter to it to check M/C sol dwell.

On the passenger side, there are two harnesses, one is for the computer, the other is for HVAC.

That terminal dist block with the orange wire is used for the several HOT all the time lights, dome, vanity mirror, trunk light, rear quarter lights if equipped. The CTSY/CLK 20A fuse supplies the power. That fuse supplies all the rest of the things that will be powered when the key off. cigar lighter, underhood, footwell and glove box lights, memory for the radio, audio alarms (key minder), horn relay, the door lock switches (not the actual solenoids), along with what is also powered by the terminal block mentioned above. So that 20 amp circuit has a lot of little jobs to do.

That junction block would be a good place to pickup HOT ALL THE TIME 12 vdc for low amp draw uses. Just a shame it's stuffed way up there in an inconvenient spot.

Wow, thanks Bob...I didn't know what it was for. I never really even tested it to see either. Now I know and think I will employ it somehow. I might move it down lower so it is more accessible.

This thread is epically awesome. I wish I would've seen this a long time ago but the search button doesn't function all that well...

My question if I may ask, is where is the oil pressure sending unit? I've been told somewhere down on the driver side of the block near the oil filter...but I can't find it to save my life. I do have some sensor on the front of the driver side block right between the headers #1 and #3 cylinder's primary tubes, except it has a wire connected to it already...I imagine one sensor for the computer, one for the gauge...

TIA.

This is the best picture I have of the oil pressure sending unit





See that silver canister behind the header above where the oil filter goes? It is actually on a short piece of pipe and a 45 degree fitting to be3 able to get it around the header.

Oh ok, thank you very much! I'm gonna just assume my motor is just so greased up and dirty that it's hard to see it because it's probably just caked in it and black. Now I know where to look I should be able to find it I would think. Thanks again!

Wow!! I'm so pumped I found this post. I'm finally getting my engine back together after doing a rebuild and I didn't label some of them, or the labels fell off.... anyways, Thanks for posting this info! I was just in the garage banging my head because I was frustrated that I couldn't find some of these connections. This saves me lots of time and heartache.

edit:
oh hey, Lobito, thanks for posting and putting this at the top of the list...That's how I found it.

I'm not exactly sure which pictures you are referring too...there are many in this thread. Quote the actual picture and we'll help you figure out what you are looking for.

I know this an old post but this is the one I came across. Great information. I need to purchase a new engine harness, the one on left side from under brake booster that goes to alternator, starter, coolant temp sender etc. I have had no luck. Do you happen to know the part number for it, where I might find one, and what all models/years may be interchangeable with it?
