    Can anyone help me identify these loose wires? They are on the drivers side. 2 green wires that have been cut, and the one black wire with a connector on it. 1970 base camaro, no power brakes, no A/C.

    If I am not mistaken the two green wires got to the temperature sending unit. It looks as though the brown plug these wires came out of is still on the unit between no.1 and 3 cylinder. I don't that think they will hold up to the hedder heat though. I can confirm when I get home if I don't work overtime. The other goes to the proportioning valve on the master cylinder.

    There is already a wire that connects to the front intake manifold. There is alos a temp sending unit on the back of the intake manifold that is not hooked up.

    Is there an aftermarket temp gauge somewhere in the car?

    If you trace your wire from your temp gauge it most likely will lead to the sending unit on the front of the intake. Are you sure the one at the rear of the intake isn't screwed onto the block? If so that would be an oil sending unit.

    The two green wires went to the original temp sender in the head. One was for the gauge the other is part of the TCS system. Is the wire with the boot tan? If so it probably goes to the brake prop valve.

    Yes it is to the brake prop valve. I hooked it up last night.
