    Default {{Please help me identify these wires}}

    I'm trying to redo the wires on my terminal block, In my haste to beat the weather, i didn't match them up when i took them off. The wires goto my gauges, the wires are as follows...Purple, Brown, Grey, White, and Blue. The wires i took off are mismatched from the harness so i'm not able to use them as a reference. Thx in advance....

    Purple, Brown, Grey, White, and Blue... Typically.... purple is 12v switched ignition. gray is tach (depending on application) Blue is o'press, brown is temp, white should be larger wire ? and is likley soleniod

    Correct, the white is larger (12ga). The others are 14ga. Can anything be damaged if i don't connect them correctly to the right wire??

    EDIT: Didn't see the schematic..thx.

    The guages can "spike" and be damaged internally and yes the white (sometimes with a yellow trace) is your solenoid "excite" wire coming from your ignition switch Tom

    Exclamation Got another question about this wiring.....

    The 2 wires coming off the top of the alternator (white or brown, can't tell), where do they connect to on the terminal block??

    EDIT: I know now that 1 of them gets 12v, not sure about where to put the other 1. As far as i can tell it would splice into the ignition, I just need to know for sure.
