351C electrical woes

Hi I have started refitting the engine bay wiring (minus headlight, horn, indicator light wiring) to a XC LTD 351C engine. I've been following an XC 6 cylinder gregory's manual for working out most of the loom but I can't work some things out...

There is a red with green striped wire, going into the firewall, that is connected (spliced) into the same color wire that connects the throttle solenoid to the (early) EI module, on the mudguard. Where does this connect to inside the car?

There is a yellow wire running from the + terminal (not B+) of the 55A alternator, past the throttle solenoid, to up near the carb. It was previously disconnected, before I got the engine. What does this connect to?

Also, the Ford starter motor "starter drive plunger lever" won't kick in to engage the gear. The motor does work, when this lever is held in by hand, but the lever won't work by itself. How can this be fixed?

Thanks, Any help greatly appreciated :)

Your best bet will be to try & get the wiring diagram for an XC V8 or P6 LTD, try you local library or even a TAFE Library.

The red/green wire goes inside to the ign switch.It is for ign only ,no power on acc.The yellow wire from the alt was originally used to power the auto choke.

First thing I'd do is get rid of the Gregory's manual. I've found them to be in-accurate.

Thanks for the help guys, I wasn't sure if Gregorys made a V8 manual, but now I know, I'll have to get my hands on one. I agree though, they aren't the best.

Would the red/green wire connect to the same place as the resistance wire on the ignition switch?

Any thoughts on the starter?
