RE: Removing a type III engine

the big thing from the computer plugs into the FI wiring harness, not he
car wiring harness.  The only contacts you shouls have to the rest of
the car should be;

a wire to terminal 50 on the starter

2 wires to the pump relay under the dash

another wire to the relay unser the back seat.

I think thats it-  and those are those wierd pull off
can't-get-em-back-in connectors.  youll see.

check out the FI wiring harness diagram that came around this morning on
the list.  it will show all.

To Anyone who's going to repond to Doug:  please make it public!! I have
to do this in a few  weeks!
