Have found a couple of ground wires in engine bay harness wiring are open circuited . Can anyone give me a clue to where the ground wires for the harness are connected in the engine bay !!!.

My '74 has a single ring earth bolted to the brake distribution block.

Plus another to the back of the alternator.

Nothing whatsoever at the coil end of the loom.

Wiring loom is original, never been removed.

 

an earth from the pass rear bolt tappet cover to the hood latch as well

??? Sounds like a PO add-on to me.

Gilltech is correct. I meant alternator aswell and not the ignition coil.
