starter sol wiring ???

Which wire from the column carrys the power down to the solenoid to activate it.
Is it
Brown or
Purple and white.

This 71 is just about ready to make me install an easywire harness so I can quit guessing all the patch work that has been done.

Re: starter sol wiring ???

on a 69 the purple is the solenoid wire - the yellow goes to the coil + - and I don't see a brown

the white wire gets teamed up with the yellow wire at the coil + terminal

not sure if this helps

Purple and white is to the starter solenoid. Question is, where are you starting from? I'm assuming the bulkhead to engine compartment right? If so, the brown is to the parking lights.

Re: starter sol wiring ???

Does the brown wire go on the big post along with the Pos. battery cable to supply power to the horn relay?

12g Purple with white stripe comes from the IGN switch and goes to neutral safety switch, from there solid 12g purple goes to starter "S" terminal. Heres a pic from a 70.
