I've got a 73 Maverick with a 302 V8 that I've built. My problem is that when I bought it the wiring was already disconnected from the coil, water temp/oil pressure senders. Now that I'm trying to hook everything back up under the hood, I'm not sure which wires go where. There are three wires on the left side of the engine compartment that appear to be connected through the wiring harness to the fuse box that have 90 degree push-on type connectors and a single wire on the right side that has a male spade type connector that appears to be running to the alternator. Hope someone can help me out that knows more about Ford Maverick wiring than I do,

Try the wiring diagrams at http://tech.maverickgrabber.com

I think the push connectors are for the water or oil light switches, and one of the coil leads.

Thanks, I'm fairly new to Fords originally being a 68 Roadrunner man. I got this Maverick pretty cheap just to get back into hot rodding, and I wasn't familiar with Ford wiring.

Thanks again,
