So I have generally avoided things electrical, but time for that to end, so looking for a little basic help to get me started.

I just want to confirm I am reading Papajam's wiring diagram correctly because literally the first plug terminal I looked at (new harness from a vendor) looks wired wrong. Odds of that seem low, but who knows?

Below is a picture of a 1974 US GTV diagram from Papajam. It shows grey wire should go through #1 position in the plug terminal. But the plug terminal itself, I THINK, has it going through #2.

Can someone confirm I am numbering the plug terminal correctly in the 2nd picture? I think that's how the wiring diagram maps to the plug, but maybe I am wrong.

Papajam wiring diagram:
1659340


Actual terminal plug wiring:
1659341


Thanks!

Not knowing much about the actual connector, it does seem like 1 and 2 are swapped. What does the mating connector look like.

You are reading it correctly. Either Jim made an error with his schematic or your plug is wired incorrectly.

I have seen numerous mistakes at connectors in wiring harness. Always double check each connector against a wiring diagram and the harness your replacing.

Most of the mistakes I've seen have been replacement harness from the factory. i.e. Alfa and Saab to name a couple.

Nope, Jim had it right on his diagram. Factory diagram below confirms.

So should I be annoyed that I paid a vendor to do this harness and I have to check their work connection by connection? Or are mistakes like this just par for the course?

That's up to you. If it's only one wire, and the harness fits and works, I would be as happy as a lark.

It could be a one time mistake or, the harness that was used as a guide has this same issue. You could notify the vendor as a good gesture.
