Hi

First of all...thanks for your patience! I know I have read similar questions and the answers. But...boy oh boy...I can't seem to find those posts. So,

1. please identify the round mystery plug?

2. please identify the two mystery wires? I cut them down but I would like them gone...they used to run along the firewall and extend beyond the ignition corner of the engine bay. I found them coiled up and disconnected. I think they were for the A/C system that was disconnected (and subsequently removed).

Thanks!

The round plug looks like the connection to the wiper motor.

on the mystery wires...didja trace 'em back to their origin? If they go to the fuse box, are the connected to a fuse that's hot all the time or just with the ign on? Is it an 8 or a 16 amp fuse? If the latter, in both cases, you may well be correct that it once powered your A/C. But that is just a guess; you'll have to do some tracing to know for sure.

Have you (or a PO) removed all the emission stuff from your car? The wiring harness for the emission equipment is separate from the car's main harness, so will unplug at one or two spots and come out intact (no cutting necessary), so what you have probably isn't old emission equipment.

Hi Mike

Thanks for confirming the wiper motor plug. Makes sense now. Its been awhile :)

Regarding the mystery wires, Thanks for the recommendation on how to determine what it may have been for. I will trace it back, just to be sure. BTW, the wires were just hanging out there before I began resto so I believe the PO had whatever was at the other end removed.

Regards

Thanks Marshall

Ya know...that makes complete sense! Certainly easily checked on electric schematic and tested once its back together.

Regards
