    Huge help! thanks!

    But a few queries...

    The Fuse Bar:
    I'm assuming when the ignition is turned on, the PINK wire powers fuse10 and then back out through fuse14, fuse11 and fuse9 (not labelled??)

    To: Instrument Panel
    this comes off the PINK wire just before fuse 11. Is this for Instrument panel illumination?

    Temperature?
    Where is the sensor wire that comes from the temp sendor unit? come to think of it... where is the temp sendor unit in this diagram?

    Please Explain?
    What are the following parts and how do they contribute?
    - Cold Feed Switch
    - Anti Dieseling Solenoid
    - Trans Controlled Spark Switch

    Manual transmission
    Since its connected to a manual trans... can the following circuits be removed/ignored?
    - Detent Switch (Turbohydramatic)
    - Detent Switch (Trimatic)
    - Detent Switch Automatic transmission
    - Neutral Safety switch (Automatic Trans Only)

    Distributor Vacuum Advance Solenoid
    I assume this is like a timing controller... changine the spark timing based on the carbie vacuum?

    I can't really help ya with the rest. But when wiring up my 173 (wiring is pretty much the same for ur 308). I ran the power cable from the battery in the back to the starter. A cable off the starter then went into a distribution block in the cabin (to power accessories) then over to the ignition. From the ignition there's 2 wires which get joined together, then run over to the positive on the coil. One is for the key when it's 'on', and the other for when they key is on 'start', just so when the key is in both positions, there is power going to the coil. Also another wire from the ignition goes over to the solenoid on the starter motor. You'd have to use the Hilux wiring diagram to find out where they go on the ignition.

    Then all that's left to get her running is the dizzy wiring. On my 173 which has an electronic dizzy, one of the wires is earthed out, and the other goes to the negative side of the coil.

    I'm using an electric Speco oil gauge, and I got a sender unit with the gauge. I just ran a new wire for that too, as everything is getting rewired.

    Yes u should be able to forget about those wires for the auto trans, u won't need them.

    I haven't connected the anti dieseling solenoid or anything else on my carby except the fuel line, a vacuum line to the dizzy (for the vacuum advance...rest are plugged) and the throttle cable...so yeah can't help ya with that.

    I can JUST read it... could you possibly scan it at a higher resolution?

    did some researching though...

    Cold Feed Switch (CFS)
    Screwed into the head from HZ on. It's function is to prevent vacuum spark advance until the Engine Temperature exceeds 65 degrees C to minimise emissions.

    Trans Controlled Spark Switch (TCS)
    Mounted on the gearbox, This makes contact when in high gear only and controlled the timing advance, part of emissions.

    CFS & TCS working together
    The Transmission Control Switch (TCS) is mounted on the Gearbox and only permits Vacuum Advance to the Distributor when the vehicle is in Top Gear. The purpose of it is to reduce emissions during the warmup phase. It is placed in series with the Cold Feed Switch (CFS) switch on the Engine so that full Vacuum Advance is only available when the engine is at or above 65 degrees temperature and the car is in top gear.

    Anti Dieseling Solenoid
    Mounted on the side of the carbie, The anti-diesel solenoid is used to prevent engine run-on after the ignition switch is turned OFF. The system uses a valve to shut off the supply of fuel to the primary low speed circuit, when the engine is turned off. The solenoid is normally closed and when energized, the needle assembly retracts, allowing fuel to flow through the primary low speed circuit.

    Temperature guage wiring still eludes me??
    Still can't find the temp gauge wiring... yes i know where the sender unit is and so on... but just curious why its not in the diagram?

    so you can see how they all interact and what you "could" get away with removing... but if they work... and you have them... better off with them!
