Not sure what loom you ordered, as these are the business ends of an original TR7 gearbox loom ...

If I am not mistaken the two extra wires are for the light in the automatic gearbox which the manual doesn't have/use.

Nowt to do with the auto box. The tr7/8 loom should only have 2 connections. Someone has sold you the loom off sonething else.

I've removed that type of harness off a couple of TR7 I've scrapped. I even still have one around here somewhere. What the extra wires are for I don't know or can't remember. But, the TR7 did come with that harness for some reason on some cars in the US.

Thanks Peter, I have connected the loom minus the two wires and all is fine. It was brought as a manual loom so didn't need any 'bypassing'.
