Test fitting the harness for a 3800 swap that i purchased from a vendor on here.



Believe these are the crank and cam sensors but don't seem to have a plug on harness.



Believe that is the harness plug for the coil, but no way that plugs into this coil pack.



Would this be the wire plug and switch for the reverse lights just not matching? the trany is from a 92 Beretta, the harness plug is the same as the reverse light switch on a Isuzu we have here.
Everything else has a match, am I missing something here or is the harness?

See that rectangle connector showing behind your coil packs? There's a harness that plugs into that which has the crank and cam sensor and ICM plugs on it.

You need ICM harness, that contains the CPS and CAM sensor connectors, it also contains a wire that you may need for the tach signal.

And that stock ICM harness - that has the Crank, Cam, Ground, ICM brick and 8 pin connector to your engine harness should reach if you mount the coil pack in the stock on engine location or if you move it to the front firewall because the ICM hits the rear deck lid.

Your VSS connector and Reverse Switch connectors need to be changed to the proper ones, or you need short swap tails. I can make them if you wish but you should check with your existing vendor (Dan) first.

-------
The ICM harness always includes the white tach signal wire. The nice way to wire for it is to populate position E in the 8 pin connector. It won't be populated if the donor harness car didn't have a tach signal. I would assume that is how Dan wired for the tach, so no extra wiring is needed to the ICM harness.

Yep need that short ignition module harness that almost all wreckers leave attached to the engine as it is a pain to remove so unless requested is not usually included in swap harnesses.
If you can't find one closer I can send you one. Dan

thanks lots, I was sure I was just missing something. The VSS is correct the reverse switch I can just build a patch.
