'82 300TD where does this wire plug in?

Happy Thanksgiving
Got a question. There is a wire coming off the middle of my IP on the engine side at the top, it has on the other end a plug with three male prongs. Looks as if it has been off for awhile, just wondering where the heck it should go to. Could it be the cause of the motor running rough at idle? This is on a 1982 300TD. Any help would be appreciated!

My 82 300TD has no wire coming out of the injection pump. No what so ever.
Some of the 85 injection pumps used a TDC sensor. so you may have a 85 injection pump.
A TDC sensor can be installed for diagnosis work.

The wire may have been left plugged in.
