I need to rebuild the harness for the passenger side of the engine (o2 sensor, temp sensors, etc) and I can't seem to source the striped wires necessary to keep the original color-code. Jegs had a few color options but not the ones I'm looking for. Does anybody know of a source for that stuff?

Waytek has striped wire, but custom ordered and expensive I think. How much do you need? colors and how long? I have a harness from a 1g that I have been canabalizing for years for matching wire colors.

The wiring is nice and soft back where it passes under the TB but up by the water pipe it's brittle and broken, on top of the carnage that I reaped. Also, I'm missing the plug for the AC temp sensor (top temp sensor on water-neck).

The colors are variations on Green. G w/ B, G w/ Y, etc. How's that section on your spare harness? Intact? Nice and soft? If it's good to go I'd buy it off of you and then splice it in...

See if you can find a good condition wiring harness from a DSM or Galant in a junk yard. Get the whole thing, then de-pin wires from the ecu connector and pull the wires you need. You probably wont need to find a turbo model, just one with a 4g63 engine. Don't buy a JDM harness, some of their connectors aren't the same, and they use a different o2 sensor.

That's basically what I did and it worked out great. You'll get really good at de-pinning connectors too!

Unfortunately the junk-yard here leaves something to be desired as far as Mitsus go. That's what happens in a state thats nearly the size of california with less than a million residents. The last time I asked the guy at the desk he said that he just crushes DSMs on site because in this climate nobody is interested in rear-wheel-drive sports cars.

I just fixed my 92 for all those wires this summer. I will look at my harness and see what I have and what colors I used for repair. It is not the same harness, just a body harness from a 1g.

RWD sports cars?

Did you at least enlighten him that these cars are FWD or AWD, and therefore very desirable in that climate? Make HIM bang his head against the wall too!

Never try to enlighten the man who works at the junkyard. That's his turf and he doesn't take kindly to wise-asses.

I think I'll just get some spools of solid-color wire and match them as closely as I can... it's not perfect but I'm tired of this thing not running...

FYI, the plug on the top of the thermostat housing is the same as the A/C pressure plug on DSMs.

^^ Where is that on the harness? My A/C is gone so I don't really care about that sensor but as a matter of principle I'd like to avoid deleting harness plugs.

It's way in the front left, by the coolant overflow tank. Right next to the sensor for power steering.

Quoting jepherz:

Exactly the same, or "will work"? I had to repair that on 115 but I don't recall it being identical.

What about the little metal pins that go into these plugs? Can they be sourced or do I have to salvage them from the old brittle wires?
