  • Questions about 73 model wiring - Poll Number 1

    I've noticed an error on the Facia diagrams that I made and shared for the 73, 74-75, and 76 models. I want to revise these diagrams, but I have a couple of questions to ensure accuracy in some other areas on the 73 diagrams.

    If you know the answer, please participate in this poll. Comments are also welcomed. Please Give your Commission Number if you take the poll and comment.

    EDIT: The reason I am asking this is that the Advance Auto-Wire diagrams show the 73 models to have the same Multi-Pin disconnect (Switch with Pigtail) as the 74 and later models, but I have seen numerous posts that indicate otherwise. I would like to establish the changeover point if in fact, any 73 models have the Multi-Pin disconnect.

    No evidence of pigtail on this car. All wires leading from ignition switch are tie back into the main harness with no disconnect visible
