hi mate, have u got the poverty spec clocks and your fitting some clocks with a rev counter??I will assume you are! heres a couple of pics of where the wires should go, the red one u dont use as its a live for the clock!I think u may need to link a earth wire over, U can easily pull the wires out of the plugs, so dont cut them.I hope this is what your doing otherwise i feel a bit of a dick any help just ask....done this a million times.

Hi orion_crazy_girl I am trying to find out what every wire is for so I can wire it into my mk2 orion the clocks I have now are standard 1600 clocks without a rev counter and the clocks I am trying to fit are xr3i ones

How would i know the difference between the clocks, the only thing i can think of is that my fuel gauge is on the right.
