Cool, I've never heard of an EA71 powered buggy, but I'm sorry I can't help with the year. Wireing and I are like oil and water...

The wiring would be entirely dependent on what distributor and carburetor are installed on the motor. The only other items plugged in on the motor are the oil pressure switch and coolant temp switch, which is usually on the radiator I believe.

I don't know for certain that this translates to the EA71, as I have an 81 Brat. But the temp sending unit on the radiator only triggers the radiator fan. I have another temp sending unit mounted to the engine that feeds the idiot light. I think it's the one on the back of the intake manifold.

its definitely going to need some work im not getting enough spark/gas... sont know which. its a single barrel carb.. did this come standard i had her running fine and then the battery just drained?????? no clue where to go from here but not giving up hope. a mechanic friend is going to come look at it later today and try and help rewire. there are so many wires everywhere and half of them are not connected/cut/burnt. lovely situation. she tries to fire but just cant get there all of the sudden.. any thoughts would be great
