Electrical Component

My son and I just started doing a Resto mod on a 68. We have removed the subframe and front end to clean up the underside of the car. My question is regarding an electrical bulkhead connection. As you face the firewall, above and to the right of the throttle assembly is a rubber bulkhead fitting that has two male spade connections oriented at 90 deg to one another. Two wires emerge from the main harness, one for each spade, one has continuity to the turn signal fuse in the fuse panel with the other having continuity to the main power. Any idea what this connection may be for?

Re: Electrical Component

It does look exactly like the pic, thanks for the help. I would imagine there will be more questions along the way. With respect to the connection, will it be needed to connect to a TKO?

Re: Electrical Component

Dex, pick up a copy of the 68 AIM Assembly Instruction Manual, it will show you every component in detail that you run into. Good luck with your project.

Re: Electrical Component

Dex, just running the wires from the TKO reverse switch to that plug will be the neatest way to do it. Otherwise you'll have to run the pink wire from the circuit over to the TKO switch, and then run the light green back over to the rear light harness somewhere. Assuming the circuit from the plug up is okay, you can just run two wires to the plug. Maybe get the correct connector and make it look factory...
