I just did this same thing last night-If you ordered the clarks harness it is missing a wire,  There is a yellow wire in the incoming body harness that is not in the new engine  harness- that is from the starter  and supplies 12V to the coil when cranking.  I removed it from the old and installed it in the new and Viola ! I now have taillights and brake lights ! There were also a few extra wires for the generator and regulator that I removed because I have an Alternator now.

                                                                   Hope this helps,
                                                                     Ed Lindsay

Subject: <VV> FC Engine Wiring Harness

Of helping a fellow club member with his 1961 FC.  It's my first time working on any wiring on an early model.  His engine wiring harness was a mess!  So we ordered a new one.  All my experience has been with late-model wiring harnesses where the resistance wire doubles back on itself and does not directly connect to the coil.  This new wiring harness has only one wire that will reach to the coil and that is a fabric covered resistance wire!  I'm a little confused.  Is the coil receiving less than 12 V all the time?  Any clarification would be greatly appreciated.
