back when i saw steve's pictures i went and checked my old harness and slit the sheating in one place. the wires were not anywhere close to steve's example. in fact, they looked perfectly fine. the ends were they connected to the fuel injectors and other terminals were another story. they looked just like the picture that andy posted.
