Years ago, I had to replace the wiring under my dash and to the engine bay/front. Original wiring was for a tilt steering column, but don't think the replacement one was the same. The left wire in the attached pic with the three-into-one is different than the replacement harness, which has two wires (red and blue-w-red stripe) going into the female red connector, instead of just the blue-w-red in the pic. Is this an issue for my tilt switch wiring?

The switch that mates to the vacuum motor on the column has the two red wires, and I can't tell where they go. I lost all the schematics from my big service manual, but do have the abbreviated manual. Doesn't show tilt stuff. Anyone able to help out? I do have the yellow-w-red stripe wire that connects to the vacuum release valve.

Found the tilt-away guide that I bought from John Baumann years ago - in my garage. Realized that I have a '68 wiring harness, not a '67. Will get her working soo...
