thanks George. I guess I'll be more specific on my next post!
this "restored " 1800 has a number of electrical issues. I'll be posting some more pics. seems the body shop that did the work wasn't the best at electrical. I suspect the previous owner made a number of electrical mods that weren't the best nor corrected on the restore.
my first thought is that for some reason this wasnt connected at the restore. the Haynes manual I have discusses this part and it's connections, however when I tried to trace the connections, the cold start valve was already connected to the wiring harness. the 71 repair manual does not reference this part, nor show it in the fuel injection system, so I would assume that it's not OEM on a 71. this leads me to believe the motor is not original. I'll get the engine number this weekend and see if I can determine its pedigree.
Thermal timer was introduced in the '72 models.
so should I just ignore it or try to hook it up? thx
I'd ignore it except for maybe removing it.
