It is not "known power" as it were. I am just verifying circuits. My latest idea was to take this particular lead out of the harness that I have on the bench and just replace that.  That would mean getting the one female connector out of the six pin connector, easier said than done.  I guess I could use a "vampire connector" (scotch lock ?) to tap into the lead that shows complete circuit on the engine side of the harness, but damn that is the lazy way around it and I may pay for it later.  I am starting to think I should wring out all of the circuits on the bench harness and just replace the whole damn thing.

Another possibility would be to start cutting the starter lead out of the engine harness, cut it every six inches or so and hope to find a complete circuit before I get to the connector. There almost has to be a break in the wire between the starter and the connector at the firewall.  I mean, it ran before I started molesting it for parts. :thumbup:

 

Third possibility.......say fuck it and move the wagon into the work spot and blow this one off for oh, I don't know, another year.

 

For now, a couple drinks, relax a bit....tomorrow is another day to be jacking with this

You can definitely start at the far ends of the section of lead with probes and check for continuity. Then work your way backward up the wire till you find it. Then you've found your break.

I depin those connectors frequently. I use the stainless steel strap from an old wiper blade and file them into various shapes and widths to use as depinning tools. Small enough to fit, stiff enough to do the job. (That's what she said...?)

I think I am going to work my way back toward the connector. This particular circuit wrings out on my other 1200 and the only difference is I can drive that one...and it has a battery in it.

 

Hmmmm, maybe I will slip a battery in just to see if that completes the circuit.  It shouldn't but, just in case.

 

I learn as I go.

You can buy replacement connectors, parts for connectors, and tools from http://vintageconnections.com/

 

They are a small mom and pop company that only takes PayPal for payment and is internet orders only.

 

I have been doing business with them for many years, good people.

I was actually on their site yesterday and I am thinking with 2 510's waiting in the wings, one of their kits would be a good idea.

So, I have been in the process of cleaning/making an inventory/organizing and stumbled across this.....

Should make fixing that harness connection a whole lot easier. Wish I would have stumbled across this a week ago.

What happens when you have a boatload of black wire and some testors paint

I have several scrap harnesses Let me know  what colors size and lengthts of wire you need.  I buy complete harnesses for under $30.  Or I can get you a harness.

I have a couple spares laying around here also. Breaking out the paint just seemed the thing to do at the time.
 
 
Well, the saga continues.....

So I put some good light in there so I could see what I was doing and found this.

This car used to be an autotrajic, and THIS is a neutral relay. It is also where the starter circuit issue is.....not the harness itself.
I didn't take the relay into consideration as it has been on the car since I have had it and with no issues.
I am going to try and by pass the deal. Neither the spare harnesses I have nor the other car are set up like this.
The silver lining? At least I am learning stuff.
