Wiring

Hey all yes another help me post. MY 90 F150 4x4 with the 5.0 auto. short story ( well ) got a new coil and saw where the wires close to the coil had got hot yes somebody had been there before me. I had seen where whoever had exposed more wire where it goes into the coil plug and the radio condenser the one at the coil. The condenser plug was melted on the out side. Well I cut the wires now the only plug I could find had 3 wires 2 green W/yellow out of the same port and I think red ( it's not in front of me right now ) anyway the one I cut out had 2 red W/ ? and it looked like a tan W/white ?. What does the 2 same port wires and the 1 wire go. I looked in my repair book but no help at all. I know I can wire it back with the different colors I was just wanting to know where they all go. Thanks

Might be better to move this to the Gen 10 forum

Looks like the lone wire (tach side) goes to the tach and may go to the distributor as well. On the dual wires (batt) one wire goes to the distributor and ignition switch and the second to the radio noise capacitor.

I don't have one of these to confirm but several diagrams I looked at showed the same thing.

Probably have to peal back the wrapping from some of the harness and find the original wires as the diagrams show splices for the same wire to go several places.

Hope this helps!

Thanks

Thanks for that. I thought I was in the right spot Sorry for that. I got the coil wired could you maybe tell me where the radio condenser wire runs to I can't remember if I cut it or it was broke. I can't find another wire there around where it should be. Can it go to many different places or can I just wire it in somewhere THANKS.

Heard that

Thanks for the move I'm not very good at this stuff any way. Well I use to say stuff to the wife but if I say night yes you know it's DAY and that if it's not one color it's the other. I'm slow but better late LOL. I just talk to myself now but the good news is I'm NEVER wrong LOL ( whether I am or not ) . Hope Roger got a good ear. THANKS
