Hello to all. I found this forum and am hoping to find some help. I will give you some history so you know exactly where I am. My father and I got a 1988 Scottsdale 2500 (2x4) for free. It had a seized motor so we replaced the block. (used - from the junk yard) Anyway once you get it warmed up, it runs great! hard to start when it is cold. We did some trouble shooting and decided that it had to do with a bad ground. I just cleaned up all of the main grounds. There is a good ground from motor to frame, motor to firewall, motor to battery, and battery to sheet metal. The problem didn't go away so I started to look around for open circuits, etc. I cleaned up a handful, but ran across this one, and have been trying to find where it goes, if it should be hot, etc. with no luck. This wire I assumed was to provide something to the ignition coil but it has been cut. It tests at 12 volts so I am thinking either it is supposed to return power to somewhere or there is another bad ground somewhere causing this to be hot. More than anything I am hoping someone knows where it is supposed to go, and whether it is a ground or hot. Additional side note: We determined that it is getting gas, and thus must be a spark problem. Also the fuel gauge is reading full, when we know it is not full. Some research tells me that this is a bad ground as well. I wonder if the two things are related. I just am at a loss for where to begin.
