Which is the fuel pump fuse on a 1970 911 ?

Just replaced the electrical portion of the 48 year-old ignition switch on my car. After installing it, I'm not getting fuel to the engine compartment; which was not a problem with the old switch. I connected everything exactly as on the original switch, and was careful not to disturb any other connections in the process. Is this possibly a faulty new switch?  (other functions including starter motor seem to work OK). Also, which fuse is the fuel pump on? .....looks like #7 on my wiring diagram. Thanks in advance for any help with this.

Wiring harness, revisited


Regarding the under dash wiring harnesses, thank you for the reply.  I should have added to the question: from what point of view?  Lying on the floor looking up at the harnesses, or sitting in the driver's seat looking through the firewall?  As always, thank you for your help.  I apologize for continually bothering you with questions, but I cannot seem to get this right.


6-pin connectors


I'm trying to reconnect all the wiring in a restoration project, and am focusing on the four six-pin connectors in the firewall.  The prior owner disconnected them, and made no notes of what went where.  There is one five-pin, but apparently it can only go in one socket. The four six-pin can be interchanged easily.  Can you possibly describe the connection configuration for the four six-pin connectors?  Thank you, Ed Anderson

1973 Porsche 911s third fuse box (engine bay) information in three languages, German, English and French

I am looking for 1973 Porsche 911S third “Fuse Box information Insert” in German and French.

The third fuse box for the US version was located in the engine bay and contained three fuses in this order:

trickle charging batteries

In years past I have always removed both batteries and placed them on a piece of wood and connected them to a charger. This always works well but leaves me w ondering? If I left the batteries in the car and attached a trickle charger to the battery in the left front would that keep; both batteries charged?? They are wired in series. Any thoughts??

71 911T Oil pressure gauge stays pegged at 140?

Just installed new oil lines. now the OP gauge stays pegged at 140. Tapping on it made no change

Charging two batteries

My 1971 has two batteries.  Do I need a trickle charger on each?

yellow & brown wires in cabin

There is a white 2 place connector that is under the dash on my 1973.5 911T.  It is on the LH side and is tucked behind the footwell blower hose - solid yellow & brown wires go from it up along the under dash lip somewhere.  It has to be stock I think but looks a bit newer than '73 - resembles an 80s type connector.


What could it be?
