I am about to install the power train in my 1964 Spyder 4-speed coupe.

I took the opportunity to check out the ventilation fan that sits above the
gearbox before I closed off access.

The full wiring is not complete so I ran some 12 volt wires to the 2 spade
terminals on the fan unit. It turned over ok.

The spade connector closest to the centre of the unit has a wire that goes
back into the tunnel to I expect eventually finish up at the switch in the

However there is no other wire in the vicinity to connect to the outer spade
connector which I suspect would be an earth.

The wiring diagram suggests that the main wire to the dash is BRN (brown)
but mine seems to be black with a red stripe, which is probably ok.

But the wiring diagram doesn't show a second wire coming off the unit from
the second spade connector.

Is anyone aware where the second wire off the unit is best to anchor to
complete the earth.
