I was checking wiring today to make it a bit tidy after installing the new engine but i found few problems which i don't know what to do about them!

first is the rip off wire just before VTEC connector! :sadface: what should i do with this? how to fix it? just use some tape or do i have to change the connector?



second was broken connector over distributor! :sadface: what should i do about this one? can i change it?



3rd was a cable hanging just behind the Intake! :sadface: i searched everywhere but i couldnt figure out where it is supposed to go! the only thing i could imagine was that it may be for Heater which has been removed from the car before importing! does anybody knows what is this wire for?



just know that it is not the wire for connecting Techometer. that one is beside ABS system.

Thanks.

as for the first one, you might be able to get away with resoldering it, but eh..
the second one you can change out the pins on the disty plug if you decide to get a new one. and the last pic... kinda looks like a speedo cable, but im not sure what year your car is...

my car is a JDM EG8 1.5 VTEC 1994!

what do you mean by resoldering?

does the Honda dealer sell the the plugs and connectors too? I thought they only sell the whole wiring!

Did you use the stock harness or the one that came w/ the engine? If you have the stock harness you should be able to cut the good plug off of it and then cut the broken plug off of your current harness and wire it together. When you do that, I would solder it and use shrink wrap on it. Here's a link to a similar situation, however this guy is converting the distributor plug from OBD0 to OBD1. It should also give you an idea about soldering and what it is.

For the vtec solenoid, I'd solder it some to make sure there is a good connection. Otherwise you can always get a plug off of a harness at a junkyard and wire it back together as well. For the final plug, I'm really not sure where it goes. Kinda reminds me of one on either the intake manifold or TB but I really don't remember.

The last one looks like it's for the purge solenoid that is supposed to be at the back of your intake manifold.

That s reasonable but my model is JDM D15B. it doesn't have a purge solenoid originally! why they put it in wiring?

It's probably just an extra plug. As long as it runs right and you're not throwing any codes I wouldn't worry w/ it.
