Default mystery yellow wire

I've hesitated posting this, but dead ended with searching. My '88 Samurai 1.3 with standard alternator, Weber carb (which resulted in cables and wires not used). Re worked head and got that back on, radiator in, alt. belt. Noticed a yellow wire about 18ga. that has a little boot at the end. I felt like I had pulled it out of the alt. while putting it all back together. There are two small wires at the alternator but a place for 3. But diagrams I see only use two connections. Also this yellow wire terminal is a small slip on disconnect type. If it goes to something on the intake manifold I didn't know it was there and pulled it off during dis assembly. Could this be off the old Hitachi carb that I am just now seeing? These mystery’s like this really bum me out, thinking I did something and can't figure out what. It is in area of alt. and goes into that bundle.From where the alt. wires go into the bundle this one is about 8" in length. Any help will be appreciated.

not sure about the wire but i hope thats not a K&N filter on that carb, if it is, get something decent that won't let dirt in.

No it is not a K&N, thanks though. Maybe I will post picture of filter and someone will say "hey, your xxxx wire is disconnected"! Glad you looked though.

get a mulitmeter or a test light out and see if it goes live with the ignition, i'm wondering if its the "anti dieseling" solenoid wire from the fuel shut off solenoid on the old carb.

Default Figured it out

Well, it's the temp sensor wire, I guess it is really yellow with white stripe, hard to tell. Anyway it must have broken off during intake manifold , head removal. The thing is so small I overlooked it. Actually first time I have had to deal with it. Problem solved! thanks to all that responded, replaced with new one ($11).

so, we spent all this time trying to work out what it was and you didn't tell us it had a white stripe? sheesh.....
then you tell us you broke it in the first place, and have now fixed it yourself

as if we didn't have anything better to do......

at least you worked it out, whats the next problem?

Default well...

I still can't see a white stripe, wiring diagram I found said it has one. I clean and stare with a flashlight yet it may have a stripe, may not; defiantly yellow. It was after going over wiring diagrams I found a single wire going to temp sensor. I thought the temp sensor was the 2 wire thing close to it. This temp sensor is tiny and barely noticed, since I've not worried about it before. For your trouble, next time I'm in New Zealand, I'm buying the beer...and thanks for helping.

Default next problem

Since you asked; after the head rework and new gaskets my timing is off. But I believe I have a fix. My timing belt location is good I only need to adjust my distributor a little. I doesn't quite get to 10* btdc and I need to turn the distributor about another 5*, should have that done in the morning! I was relieved to see no leaks. Started out with low compression in #1 (stripped plug hole) and intake gasket leak coolant to exhaust. But I made it through most of that without asking questions just reading other people problems! Thanks
