Purple Haze! Discovered that a couple of my purple wires for the safety neutral and starter solenoid were incorrectly labeled inside the car at the ignition switch connector and the other purple wire to the inside fuse block. The wiring itself was correct and the engine side purple wire was labeled correctly. Initially caused a little confusion!

Good videos, Im currently installing a AAW in my 1970. Had a few detours but getting back on track soon.
Got most of the engine wired up today and could start it! Need a battery, jumper the safety neutral and plug the ignition connector in at the column. Going to finish the cooling fans, AC and transmission first though.

Im working on same thing right now. Luckily my fans have a decent controller/relay. Flexalite , haven't wired the tri-nary switch yet. I like the delayed relay idea though! I also got a manual override switch for fans, I can start and stop them when needed.

so i am using same wire harness on my 71 with console shifter and wired according to labeling ,sounds like they are backwards ? according to schematic should be starter (solenoid) on top and ns on bottom which is how i connected it but you are saying that they are both labeled wrong?
