Default Bronco II help

I just bought a 88 Bronco II, no spark, what I found so far is a plug in front of the coolant/washer tank. One of them is a fuseable link, the problem is 4 wires are broke off, and the wire going in don't match the wire going out. Can someone get me the pin out of this, it's right behind the drivers headlight and goes up into the drivers side fender. It's like a 16-20 pin plug.

Thanks,

Tim

Yeah, I thought that would be a good idea after I got home. It's about 20 miles away at a buddy's house. Went to the boneyard yesterday and found a 90 but it didn't have the plug on it. Brian told me you'd be the guy to ask, too bad you aren't closer. I'll see if he can take a pic.

Thanks

Okay I have an 87 here at the house and one of the connectors looks like this, might not be the one you want though.

Green/yellow -----Green/Yellow
Red/Brown------Red/Brown (this wire larger gauge then the others)
Tan/Black-----DID NOT HAVE A WIRE
Blue(fusible link)-----Tan/Brown

Red/Pink-----Red/Pink
White/Red----White/red
Black-------Black
Red/Blue-----Red/Lt Blue


some of the colors might not be exact as they may have faded but those are the best i can see them.

If you could chase a component thats this connector is wired to would help....or list all the wire colors or something. Your pics are so small I can't see the wire colors for shit.

i know this sounds strange but 87 and 88 do not share the same harness been through this. there is a ground wire (looks like a fusibile link sorta just behind the battery that can be a world of confusion if it is not connected it is a weatherpack type fitting with only one wire problem is the lock gets broke on most changing batteries and so on.

OK put a better light on it here's what I got, three wires broke off. Pink/green. pink/yellow, and and a small green. Here's how the line up on plugs.

1 Broke Pink/green
2 Green Nothing
3 purple nothing
4 pink/red pink
5 red/black red/black
6 yellow/black yellow/black
7 blu/black blue/black
8 yellow nothing
9 broke off pink yellow
10 broke off nothing
11 pink/blue pink/blue
12 black black


So by a process of elimination I'll hook the matched pinks, and the green to the left over one.
Thanks,
Tim
