Okay...got it figured out. That wire that was hooked to the fuse box, goes to some kind of accessory. Has nothing to do with the neutral/park switch. Found the green and blue wire lying under the carpet. Not hooked to anything, so what function does this provide?? Truck ran fine with it disconnected? The new switch had a place for my MIA connection and for the green blue from the original harness. Plug and play baby.
I must be living right. Today the truck I was trying to get the knock sensor out of the other day? Someone had halfway pulled the motor, so I could get at the sensor...really easy. The oil sending unit and cutoff switch was lying on the GROUND...I just picked it up. And just about when I was getting ready to leave? Check out what I found!!

1988 model car GT....was super clean inside. Can't believe someone junked this car. These were laying LOOSE in the "trunk" of the Fiero. I didn't even have to pull them. Even got the bolts....well 11 of them, but that's okay! They cost me $13. Woohoo! I'm going to do the black/aluminum look and get one of those cool black/aluminum Edelbrock air cleaners to go on it. The chrome covers actually didn't leak, but they are only 2 years old and rusty. That's pretty piss poor if you ask me. The chrome air cleaner is also rusty. These covers are in pretty good shape. They have a "used car lot" paint job on them which looks terrible. Guess I can either strip them or sandblast. What do you guys recommend on that?
Well, tomorrow I will be building the throttle body and getting it ready to bolt on. I just have to run my start wire, which I decided I am just going to fuse, push back outside the grommet under the hood of the truck and connect it to the solenoid. Why not? It's the shortest way and I don't have to hack into the factory harness that way.
Raven, I got the switch you recommended. I think my gauge is currently driving off the one that is in the driver's side head? I'm not sure what the two post one is for. But that certainly solves some of my problems. Great tip man. Would it be okay to run my fan off the hole in the head?
