Customer Question
We put a 4.3...

We put a 4.3 engine back together. There are 2 red wires coming down into one eyelet, an orange wire coming down into one eyelet and it appears to be a small yellow wire with a red tracer coming down into a single eyelet. Also you have the red wire coming from the battery and the black wire coming from the battery. Please advise where all wires connect.
