Ground - 18 ga. Dark Green wire to temp sending unit (goes to ground when hot) and to temp gauge or light
IGN SW Accy - 18 ga. Black wire and Brown/White wire from Fuse block and ALT sense wire
SOL - 12 ga. Purple wire to Neutral Safety Switch then to starter
BATT - 12 ga. to Cigar Lighter, Head light switch, fuse block, Horn relay and Battery 12v+
IGN SW IGN - 18 ga. Blk/Pink (switched) fuse block, Coil and going to all the POS side of the Dash indicator lights ie, OIL, TEMP light or Gauge, GEN or ALT light, Pos 12V+ for Gas Gauge.

thanks Julian! i kinda wondered what the black and pink wire went to under the dash. the electrical diagram didn't make too much sense as it just dissappeaded at some printed circuit board in the diagram. thanks again!!

that's awesome! i actually had to come back to this thread just now to verify which terminal i needed to connect the red wire to from my MSD box (commonly labeled "FROM IGNITION KEY" in 6AL diagrams)
