    Unkown wire grounded to mount/firewall help?!?!?

    I was looking under the hood after switching my down pipe out for emissions and noticed a wired that was grounded to what I'm guessing is the the pitch stop mount where it's bolted to the firewall. The wire must have broke off from where ever it was connected. Anyone know what this wire goes to?

    They didn't hook it back up then, easy to over look in the scheme of things.
    Just find somewhere on the tranny it will reach and attach it there - think they usually go to one of the bolts that goes all the way thru the case.

    Can't remember where exactly they go - i've left mine off a couple of times doing stuff, but found an unused threaded (think it was M8 or M10 x 1.25) hole on the LH side of the tranny and used that.

    Think it helps with the Reverse and Neutral switches to get a better ground.
