    Hi All

    I am trying to minimise the wires in the engine bay but cannot for the life of me figure out the relevance of the Pink/Violet wire that runs to the Quadrajet then on to a 2 plug joiner with a Dark Blue or possibly green wire. The then run through the harness to the 21 plug joiner that runs into the dash behind the brake booster.

    I am no longer using the quadrajet so I assume I no longer need the pink wire??

    wire to the Quaddie? its for the electric throttle idle nudger on the quaddie (to prevent running on)
    (and linked to the green wire that goes to the temp sensor on the front of the manifold)

    Yeah pink will be anti-dieselling solenoid,dark blue could be cold feed switch if it's middle of engine as alt light,air con,temp & oil sender wires are at front.
