    Both wires from the starter go to the starter solenoid. Like I said, the big wire goes to the post your battery is on, the small wire goes to the opposite post.

    I couldn't find my notes on the nss, I'm 95% sure it's oart of the 4 pin connection with reverse lights that went to the aod.

    If I remember right, I had a harness from a Stang that split the reverse and nss. On the t-5 it plugs in to the cover plate near the shifter. Then the reverse lights go to its own 2 pin connection near the tailshaft.

    Sorry if that wasn't much help, but if you have four wires, two go to reverse and two go to the nss. The two that go to the nss need jumped. You can cut off the connection and stick them together if you don't have the harness.

    They one is a speedo connector, that one is in the rear of the trans by the tailshaft. So the other two wires will be the nss. the sn-95 does not use a nss, which is why it's missing on the trans and harness. While the fox did use them.

    That's why you need to jump it.

    Good luck man.

    I had a plug with a looped wire. You could cut the two wires and splice then together if you don't have the connector.

    To do a test drive, you could actually just start the car with a screwdriver...

    Make sure the car is in neutral, get a screwdriver or a another long metal tool, and stick it straight acrossed the two big posts on your solinoid by Tuesday battery.

    This will bypass the key to start the car.

    I dont have any connectors with looped wires. which wires would need to be cut and spliced? i can do the solenoid jump to test it. I guess ill have to pay someone much smarter than i am to do the rest.. Im super frustrated cause i need this car running and cant seem to get it right.
