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?? 

73.5 911 won't start after replacing , points rotor, distributor cap, check cd unit.... What next?

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?



Solid Green Wire Behind Gauges

A wire is disconnected and covered with electrical tape by a PO behind the gauges.  It is a solid Green wire with a push-on terminal and is behind the Tach or a little to the left of the are directly behind the tach.

Can you tell me what the wire is for?
