Couldn't find anything on this in the archives.
I'm replacing the wiring harness in my 1979 1000. and hit a couple of snags.
First, there is a pretty heavy Blue/White wire with the big rubber end that connects to another harness near the wiper motor (which, in turn, heads rearward), but I can't tell where this wire connects. I don't see a blue/white wire on the incoming harness.
Second, I'm also replacing the indicators, which came from Mini Spares with a brown wire and a red wire on each. These colours do not match the wiring diagrams. I found that connecting the brown wire causes the indicators to blink, so figure the device is grounded to the wing. However, I'm at a loss as the the red wire. I do not have side indicators, but should have what we across the pond refer to as "parking lights". So, I'm figuring these red wires probably connect to the red/green wire emerging from the harness behind the grille for parking or hazard lights, which do not blink.
Third, the new harness calls for wedge lights in place of the original round bulbs. Anyone know the specification for these bulbs?
Four, does the distributor connect to both the + and - posts on the coil?
Mini Spares has been unresponsive to my inquiries, surprisingly.
TIA for advice.
