alright, i kind of forgot where a wire plug up to in the engine compartment. the bundle of wire that comes in to the engine area, 3 of them go to the alt. one goes to the   - coil side ,  the green w/yellow tracer goes to the oil sender, where does the big black wire run to , i had it labled at one point but the tag fell off. please help   i'm in the process of doing an engine swap.

Have not looked at diagram but guessing the right side of carb for auto choke..... unless you have fuel injection....

actually i know it isn't the choke wire , because i replaced that wire with a yellow wire just like the fuel cut-off solenoid, then ran to the +side of the coil.

Well it sounds like its your wire that makes your reverse lights work.. just a thought.. might want to get someone to stand behind you while you have it in reverse.. I have that wire sitting in my engine comp to and i can't hook it up because the little shield thing it was in was eaten alive by my engine.. Since the paint shop who painted my car joyfully put it in my fan when they were "painting". I've still yet to figure out why..
