Painless and EZ-wire both have complete harness and instructions available..this may be what you need..there may be some others that have wiring harness that will work as well..i suggest a google search for wiring harness as well as a search on the knowledge base on this site..

there is quite a bit of info on this so you shoudl be able to find it..Perhaps some of the others here may weigh in with some more specificl links..

I have tried most all of it and now do what is known to work..

Doc here:


I'm a bit confused, you want to remove a computer that has no wiring harness?

pull it out and toss it...if the wires are already gone.

Is the engine your trying to run a pre 80 non smogger? no EST, TBI,EFI, with a mechanical advance?

If you have EFI or TBI you will need the computer..else change your induction system to carb.

Tell us more about your set up, and what your trying to do, maybe we can help more..

What wires are gone? everything including lights? or just engine?
Do you just want to get it to start and run and charge ..no frills?

Let us know..
Happy Holidays!
