Team,

On my 69 Camaro, there is an orange wire that comes from the firewall, goes throught the plastic holder over the distributor, then travels towards the intake manifold. Wehre does this connect and what is it? It looks similar to the wires that would go on the ignition coil. Thanks.....

Sounds like the heater fan power supply wire, if I am understanding your description. Does it have a round rubber boot over a single female connector?

Sorry guys, The blower motor is already connected with a female connecter. The blower motor is about 1" long with rubber around it and hard to connect with the fender on. The orange wire Im referring to comes out of those same cables and looks like it should hook up to the coil because it looks just like the cables that go on the coil. I'll try to post pics as soon as possible. Thanks

I believe it does go to the positive side of the coil....saw it on an old 69 wiring diagram.

Looking at it closely, on the passenger side on the intake manifold, there is a circular spring that a curburator linkage hook up to it. Could it be that this wire is a simple ground that hooks up to that spring retatiner nut? How do I post a pic of this? Car was all original. Thanks Team

Sounds like that spring is part of the choke. Don't connect it like a ground until you test to see if it has 12 volts on it...

Correct, The linkage controls the front opening to the carburator. This is the only place that I can see this going to. I'll check to make sure it does not have 12v onit. Thanks. How do I post Pics......?

I don't have my color coded wiring diagram in front of me but I'm thinking that this wire could be for the oil pressure switch or sending unit??
I think oil pressure wire was green. One thing we don't know.....does the car start ?

Roger, thanks. The car starts. Today, I rebuilt the carburator and I notices that there was a green wire with a loop at the end. Does this go to the distributor, if so where? If not, any idea.

If your car has C60 (air cond) this wire is not hooked up It is for the blower motor in heater-only cars. It should not be 'live' as the other end inside the car at the heater controls is not hooked up either.

Dave, AC was not an option. There are two other females connectors that hook up to a vaccum line sensor on this same wiring. Im pretty sure this orange wire was hooked up, I just dont remember where.

Here is a link you may find useful http://www.gvtc.com/~rlaa/Electrical/scan.zip
Has the standard 69 engine wiring diagram which will get you through most of your problems.Wire size as well as color are helpful when identifying what goes where.
Pages 6 and 7 are the engine compartment and console.

Thanks for all the info, especialy the wiring diagram. These wires are add ons as part of an emission control module.:beers:
