As long as the harness is still complete you will find you do not need know the colours.

These harnesses are designed to be put in by unskilled labour, so when layed into place here will only be one connection accessory that the end of the wire will go onto in that area.

For an HG Kingswood the following are connected to the harness that comes into the engine bay from the driver's well:

One leg goes across the firewall and connects to the wiper motor and washer pump.
The other leg goes over the inner gaurd and across the front of the car and is much longer than the other leg. First wires to horn, then right blinker and headlight, across the front to left blinker and headlight.

The engine wiring is simular, just look at what needs to be connected:

Heater fan if fitted
Reversing wires if 4 speed
coil (yellow)
temp
oil
Starter motor activate
Starter motor permanent active (red with fusable linkl)

You will find these are far enough apart that the wires become obvious.

Cannot remeber which harness the regulator to alternator is in, but would guess as engine harness.

To add to Warren's comments.

Temp - green wire
Oil - dark blue wire
Coil +ve - yellow
Starter solenoid - purple wire
12V starter - thick red wire
Heater - light tan (short)
Alternator light - brown (goes to meet blue at connector)
Tacho (if factory) - brown (short with spade connector)
Brake fail (if 1971) - light tan (long with bullet connector)

Try to find an HK workshop manual as well as an HT/G supplement, these are invaluable for wiring diagrams etc. They are all in colour in the factory manuals.

All of the above plus take lots of photos. A good digital camera for less than a $100 and you can even take short videos with the same camera explaining or describing what goes where as you dismantle, just talk to the camera as you go, dont worry about taking too many at the time just take photos and later on delete what is not useful. Careful though with videos they can use a lot of space or memory.....best regards...Jack

These might help.
Cant find the coloured dash diagram for the G, might be kicking around the car somewhere, so have included a generic all inclusive diagram.
Hope this helps

found the other photos and got better pics
