6-conversion engine wiring harness

I yanked my 1.8L motor last weekend and left the fuel injection wiring harness intact.

From the relay board, I removed the two FI wiring harness. However, I think one is not specifically fuel injected related.

Following the leads, it seems to connect to the starter and to the reverse light switch. The remaining leads seem to go to the coil.

Should I save this one part of the harness for my six engine (carbed 3.2L)?

Or what have others done out there as far as engine wiring for their six motors to cover the above mentioned connections?

I ditched the relay board altogether, since I had an alternator with an internal regulator.

After studying the wiring diagrams (914 & 911) I used the 911 engine wiring harness (14-pin) and the harness that went to the relay board from the front (also 14-pin). Thanks to Steve (sleepdoc on the 911 board), I got the part number for a male 14-pin connector (911.612.113.05) and bought two (they were around $20 -- cheap! -- from the dealer) and made a "link" harness to go between the two. Porsche even includes the weird metric "bullets" with the plastic part! I also moved the fuel punp & fuses to the front trunk. This setup makes a clean install.

A side benefit: I can now read the "modern" Porsche wiring diagrams. Someday, I'd like to get a set of them in c-o-l-o-r!

Enjoy! With a carbed 3.2, you're never going to want to get out of the car!
