Greetings!  I was having trouble getting a good spark to the plugs.  I was convenienced that my Crane HEI was out of phase so I sent it to Advanced for a rebuild.  On reassembly it went back in without a lot of swearing and I thought my troubles were over.  When I was cranking it to do the timimg, smoke was visible from under the hood.  After a second round of cranking I found the culprit wire in the bundle coming out under the fuse box on the firewall.  It is ( I believe) a white/slate wire but for the life of me I can't find it on my wiring diagram.  Any ideas where it came from or where it goes?

The beauty of British wiring is that the color tells you everything in a nut shell. A white main wire with a slate tracer should be, on all British cars, current tachometer to ignition coil.
