Question about Cars & Trucks
I have a 1974 MG Midget which recently developed a short in the small brown wire connecting to the alternator and burned quite a few wires in the harness. I believe I have fixed that problem, however; I only have earlier diagrams which do not show all of the brown wires in my car,nor do they show the white/brown wire which I believe connects to the solenoid. two heavy gauge brown wires are connected to the positive terminal of the solenoid as well as a smaller guage brown wire. There is also a thinner guage brown/yellow wire. All of these thick and thin brown wires lead from the positive termal of the solenoid to the alternator. This must be wrong as they are hot all the time. Also, the white/black lead form the distributor attaches to the negative side of the coil and then continues on into the harness. My most recent diagram shows only two brown wires from the positve terminal of the solenoid and a white/red wire from the distributor to the neg. side of the coil. I would appreciate any help as to what I am obviously doing wrong or a free source for the correct wiring diagram would be great! Thanks for any help, Tom in Gilbert, S.C.

SOURCE: 88 s10 wiring problem
if you have a 4.3 liter the wire from the positive post on the battery should go to starter and to the post with 10mm nut on the back of the alternator with a 2nd wire that goes to your ignition coil. ignition coil wire should have a fusible link in the line.

Ring and pinion gears and a master bearing set. The bearing set should come with all bearings, crush sleeves, etc..

I have the same model year as yours, but that does not really matter. If you go to the back of your Haynes manual, the wiring color codes are spelled out for you specific to your car, It is possible that a new or rebuilt starter can be stuck (clearances on starter gear/and shaft) or that you somehow bolted it in slightly askew and it is stuck or cannot move properly. Spot check the ring gear teeth by looking through the starter hole to see if they are o.k. and that the gear on the starter seems correct. Also, look around and check and make sure the ground strap is good (motor to body) or any ground for that matter
Sometimes, if a motor or starter motor is in a locked rotor condition this will cause a heat rise. It might be a good idea to remove it and energize it with jumper cables from the battery-- (a bench test) to verify actuation. (spin) Then wipe the grease of the leads (so you can read your color code) and carefully connect them to the terminals as the wiring diagram tells you in the Haynes manual.
