Hello Guys! I got a 67 RS/SS350 with air and I'm redoing the engine harness.I got the old harness out from the fire wall plug and I'm replacing one wire at the time.There are three plugs for the wipers:a plug for the oil/p/s one for the temp, a purple #10 wire for the solonoid, and a yelow from the solonoid to the coil, and the resistor wire for the coil.There is also a orange wire going towards the starter motor but stops short about 16"from it.Can somone tell me where this orange wire goes? Thanks. Mr

No the htr motor and air/cond, harness comes out on the right side of the car.Before I took the harness apart the orange wire wasn't even sticking out of the harness.It looked like it was burn at the end of the wire,and the ele,tape wasn't broken.There is another wire coming from the horn relay a #10blk wire that goes in to a inline fuse and then to the relay of the htr motor.

On 69s (maybe 67s are the same), the orange wire for the heater was part of the engine harness and could not be removed. If you ordered A/C, the new fan (orange) wire was part of the A/C harness. So the factory just bundled the regular fan wire up with tape on part of the A/C harness. There is a clear pic of the procedure in the 69 C60 section of the Assembly man.

Hi Kevin! maybe the 69s are the same as the 67s. my assembly man. for the 67 is not showing the wire.The wire is not bundled up. It's burnt at the end and to short to go anywere.It ends at the top tranny bolt where there is a bracket holding the harness going to the starter mtr.The #10blk wire changes to orange after the inline fuse so maybe that's where the other orange wire went if the car didn't have the a/c.

Kevin is correct, all (never say all!) 67-68 Camaros had the orange heater blower wire. On an A/C car, the wire was either taped back, or cut off at the edge of the harness. If you have an untouched original harness, you will notice this. (also note, an original harness does not use sticky vinyl tape). The other end of this orange wire, at the firewall bulkhead, will lay dead since there is not a mating wire on the dash side on an original A/C car.
Hope this info helps!

MRCOOL_RSSS350, glad to help, I love mysterys.

Camarocopo, Factory-Fit tech huh? Are you down near Cherry Hill NJ? That's about an hour from me. Do you guys have counter service? I need some 69 power windows harnesses. I always thought that if any layoffs hit me, I would find a local company (like yours) that did Automotive work ( especially for 69 Camaros )

Re: orange wire?

John, Welcome to Team Camaro, you should start a new thread of your own for a question that is not related to the current thread.
Your question is best asked in the Bench section. It will just get lost here in someone elses thread.
