    I think I have it, but am not sure . The goober cut the wire and used a thousand feet of black electrical tape to hide the sins. I have a 6 gang connector on the passenger side with a cut purple wire. I think the purple wire is my temp sender wire, Can anyone confirm this purple wire? The rubber 90° boot is cut off, other wise it would be obvious. 100_3289.jpg

    There is also a beige wire that is cut off too. The purple wire is on No6 terminal of the connector and the beige is on terminal 4. It could be either wire. Any help, thanks.

    Best I have is a 78 FSM.
    If you need any specific wiring diagrams I can snap a pic unless someone else can shed some light.

    Thanks Capt. My schematics go to 76 and it has different colors. My wife asks how do I see the color, since I can't distinguish grey, light blue tan, and mint green - a form a colorblindness or in my case color retardedness. I can see and mopar color just fine.

    The temp wire is usually purple/violet, if that helps any.

    Mine wouldn't help you much.
    It's a slant. Sits in between second line and half on mine faithfully.

    Slant6Billy what was your remedy to the 90 degree elbow plug cut off? I just had mine snap off the wire.

    It is common up to 93 on the non magnum V8s in the pickups. I used an electrical grommet and crimped it on. Just used a rubber cap to hold it on. If you find a pickup, u could splice on the 90 degree boot
