Thanks forever for help on '76 wire harness

Electrical

Vehicle Information: Model: 911; Year: 1976; Body Type: Targa; Total Mileage: 109,000;

I worked on this until 3 AM last night. The real problem comes from determining what the wire colors really are vs what they appear to be 30 years after leaving the factory. I correlated between the intact engine plug (female) assignments and colors (had shop detail them), the colors in my smashed chassis plug (male), and a 1976 schematic a friend got me. The map I came up with corresponds perfectly with yours (except pin # 6 where you say gray/brown and I make it to be brown/white-pretty close either way - the schematic shows gray/brown on the chassis side changes to just gray on the engine side and the circuit is for the back-up light switch, but I will physically check this). My engine plug has no assignments for pins # 2, 7, 8, or 12 (no female receptors). With your help I feel confident making adjustments on the chassis plug to match our two maps. What a great resource, and very timely. Thanks again.Bill Amata
