I just picked up a 1985 Interstate.
Reading thru the forums here, I looked into the yellow wires.
And there it was, the white clip/plug.
I was going to do the soldering tonight, and realized Ihad no shrink wrap, so it will have to wait until tomorrow.
I figured I would prep the area and get it all ready.
Here is the part I am suprised about:
Upon looking at the wires, I found that the original honda wiring was Yellow, thats what comes out of the eingine. However, 2 inches below abd above the white plug, the wire is yellow with a black line, and someone has soldered to shrunk wrap the yellow with black line to the original yellow. The PO did not do any work to this, however he is not the original owner.
SOoooo what could have happened?
Original white plug burn and they replaced it with something off another model?
Did they replace the stator and the put in a new plug?
What should I do? THink? OR just solder it and be on my merry way?
Your thoughts and opinions on this are much appreciated.
Also, since I have a interstate and it doesnt have the fancy volt reader, is there something I can add thats not real expensive but will allow me to watch the battery?
