anyone with an '85 please take pic of regulator

Post by saamiam »



Sooo, i had the brilliant idea of cleaning up the wiring harness after scraping up my hand trying to reach the radiator cap. I disconnected everything pretty much. When reconnecting I forgot what plugged into what. I thought i got it back right but when i fired it up she began missfiring really bad.
Long story short can somebody take a picture of their regulator/recitifier as it is connected on the left side of the air box. Also the ignition control module, please take a picture of it as connected.
Lastly, can somebody tell me where this goes, i think it wad connected to the regulator.

Not '85, but an '86. Took pictures of the area you were asking, should be similar.
















Maybe these will help?

That thing is trouble in the making, it plugs in between the regulator and wiring harness and just adds another connection to have trouble with. It is an added on radio noise suppressor. Leave it out and plug the reg directly into the harness.
