68 oil pressure wiring

Hi guys

My 68 just arrived in Australia, need some help with the engine wiring harness. The car has a new engine wiring harness but the dark blue wire is missing from the harness (Oil Pressure Switch). I have a wiring diagram but it does not show which terminal on the firewall plug it is ment to go in. Any help would be great.

Thanks Tim

Hey Tim,
Do you have a standard oil pressure guage (with a capillary), an aftermarket (like autometer) or just an oil pressure warning light?

I hope one of these helps.

Hopefully the second diagram will help you Tim.
Trouble is (if your car is like mine was) many people seem to add bits of wire of various colours over the years and that makes it just that little bit harder to figure out wiring issues.
Don't want to scare you but I ended up rewiring the whole car.

Thanks guys

the problem is from the firewall forward the wiring is all new but the wrong engine harness has been installed during the restoration, the harness is for a 68 console car (capillary gauge i think). i will open the harness up and ad the dark blue wire so i can at least get the warning light to work whist i wait for new harness to arrive.
