I'm not familiar with your car ... but does it have ordinary ht ignition leads, or colour coded ignition wires?
If it has colour coded ignition wires - each wire is a different colour for each different plug.
First check the wiring to the battery, especially the ground wire to the starter. Because these are side mount batteries (normally), acid sometimes leaks onto the wires beneath the battery holder and can eat them away. Next, check the starter itself to see if you can (with the help of a buddy) hear or see the bendix engage. The starter is basically spring loaded so the gears come out and engage the engine when you turn the key and energize the starter. These are the two most common problems.
Turn on the tail lights and using a test light check to find the existing power wire.
Find the wire that goes to on pin for the bulb and connect together . Next check another wire with some one applying the brakes . find another wire that goes to another pin for the bulb and connect that up . using a multimeter check that the last wire is connected to the bulb socket as an earth. and connect that up to the last wire . If you have a dull stop light then reverse the two power wires
iam colour blind red/green and i suspect you are too as a lot of males are and most dont even know it ,Anyway simple way out of this is to use one of them electrical 12v test screwdriver or a multimeter like i have to ,never trust colour on wires on a motor vehicle as they use any colour in the looms depending on what been used up and what stock is available ,the assembly line cannot be held up because the colour of the wire is different .
To start the engine you need a+ feed from the battery to the + side of the coil[this acts as an ignition live,to be disconnected when not testing the engine ]Next you need a heavy + feed directly from the starter to the battery[use good heavy cable]Also a good heavy earth lead from the battery negative to the engine block[jump leads work great]Connect the distributor contact breaker wire to the coil - side.To start take a live+ wire from the starter + to the "pull in" terminal of the starter[this is a male spade connector and the lightest terminal on the solenoid.when you connect the starter to the battery + the engine should turn over,Check for a spark using an old plug earthed to the block,add some fuel and listen to that baby run.
Use a suitable spark plug wire tool to remove wire from spark plug being careful not to end up leaving the terminal from the wire on the plug. If the terminal is ripped away from the wire you will have to repair it by spreading open the crimps and reattach to wire and recrimp. Silicone spray works well to slide the wire further past the spark plug wire boot to make the repair.Always use die-electric or silicone grease on the inside of plugs wire boot before you attach to plug, it helps removal for next time and it seals the boot so spark dont leak from boot and makes a moisture barrier as well. Now to answer your question if the wires are in a loom holder you have to take the top part of the loom holder apart to get wires out of it . The loom holder usually just pops into slots on the bottom part of the loom holder. It shouldn't be too hard to figure out
If the colours on the new plug are different,no problem. Just make sure the same amount and colour go back to the original holes/terminals.
If you still need help, you should let us know which engine you have.Also if it is a 2V or 4V.
One easy way to know which ones are the speaker wires is by using a double AA battery and connec one wire on any side of the battery and just tap the other side of the battery with a nother wire and when you find the right one you will hear the speaker make a sond keep doing this until you find all the speakers well I hop this helps.
