Brown Wire issue??

Hey Guys,
Sorry to ask, but I have been through the assembly book wiring detail for about an hour today and am at a dead end?
Where does this brown wire go? It has a "spade" end on it?

Thanks!

Maybe a tach wire ?

Re: Brown Wire issue??

Would it go to the coil?

Re: Brown Wire issue??

You have a factory tach, correct? Does it work? It looks to be the tach wire which should connect to the negative side of the coil. I have a 68 with a factory tach and that looks exactly like my tach wire.

Re: Brown Wire issue??

I have a similar situation with a unattached loose brown wire under dash near the park brake.

I've got a tach and gauge setup from Classic Industries and didn't use that wire.

Re: Brown Wire issue??

tach should be white. the only brown wire on the engine side of the harness I think is the alternator field wire if you have an SI alternator conversion

Re: Brown Wire issue??

Hi Mike,

I grounded it with the ignition on and brake light didn't come on... then I grounded the actual master cylinder brown wire and brake light came on.... so I am going to do some checking on that brown wire this weekend as I've been curious now for 3 years since I got the car.....

Hmmm, I don't own one, but I though '69s still retained the GEN light... Oh well.
