    Wow. So little information. A pic would help. What vehicle? What year? Manual or auto? 2x2 or 4x4? Where's the wire coming from? Is this in the engine compartment or under the dash? What engine and what's the history of it? Has it been swqpped in? What other changes have been made?

    Mr. Wolfe, hi it's me again. I recommend hovering your mouse pointer to the upper right portion of this page where you'll see your name "JWolfe". That will open a small window. Second entry on the left column says "Signature". If you click on that, you can enter some basic vehicle data about your ride which, once completed, will automatically appear at the bottom of every thread post you make. That way, if you "forget" to mention those specs in a query like this, at least there will be something there for folks to refer to.
    Now then...circuit 95 is called out as "Exhaust Emissions". It was important at one time. Whether it still is or not remains to be seen, but more information will be required from you to arrive at that conclusion.

    I got a little more information about your rig from another wiring post you made. 1977 Scout. The 1978 Scout shows a 95 wire related to choke control on a 196 engine, and a V8 95A-16 wire coming from the dizzy that connects to BY95B-16 that connects to the generator. The diesel has its own 95 wire connecting a push switch to a thermo switch to a solenoid valve. I hope this helps.

    Sorry, I don't know these latter vehicles too well, ... but was under the impression that wire went from the coil to the '"Catalytic Converter Spark Gap", located near the surface of the Driver's Seat, and provided energy to decompose unwanted gasses. :devil2:

    HALELLUEA finally got started, MAIN power LEAD at battery bad, didn't look it, but fixed that, now on to card, throttle not working, doesn't squirt gas when pushed.
    Then a horn, and parking brake cable

    accelerator pump in your carburetor is bad. Could be the pump itself or a clogged nozzle.

    All the aluminum ones you can buy are either 2 or 3 core. They say the 2 core are plenty for the power these scouts make.

    Copper are usually 3 or 4 core but cost a boat load more. Prob cheaper to just re core yours or buy an aluminum.

    So
    So long as you have a proper fan shroud. Or a properly upgraded electrical system and an electric fan.(The 40-50 amp alternators that were typically from the factory, cant even put out 15-20 at idle, especially not with a 40 year old alternator, or a parts store "lifetime" junk rebuild.)m Electric fans run into big bucks fast though. And not the kind of big buck that may have wiped out the radiator to begin with. ;-)
