I have a 67 engine bay harness that was cut where the alternator plugs in. I cut the plug off my junk engine harness and went to splice them together only to find that the wires didn’t match. It appears that the black wire matches, the black with a red stripe match and off white match. But the reddish/orange color wire from the harness doesn’t match the white with a black stripe thats on the pigtail. Any help would be appreciated.
Attached are the photos of the pigtail from the junk harness and the wires that come out of the harness.
If this is the case should I fix the other engine bay harness rather than use this one? the reason I was using this engine harness is because it matched the red and yellow plug on the Xr7 dash harness that is in my car. The other harness doesn’t have this yellow and red plug
This is the three pin connector that is missing from your underhood harness. The orange wire is the alternator field. Center terminal is the main charging circuit for the alternator. The third terminal has two ground wires leading to it.
This is the group of wires that connects to the starter relay (solenoid). Be sure that the large ring terminal with the yellow plastic lug connects to the START side of the relay, not to the battery side. If you make this common error the Low Fuel lamp in the overhead console will be on all the time.
That white wire has me confused - might be a good question for WCCC when you get the replacement plug. In the Mustang diagram posted by Coachjack it shows the white wire leading to the alternator field but I am used to seeing an orange wire on XR-7 harnesses so I don’t know what to think of it.
Maybe try measuring ohms to see if it is the same wire connected to the F terminal of the voltage regulator plug?
