Our 2.9 Scorpios were only available 1988-1989 and the a4ld in these are unique as they are not computer controlled, so there is no wiring besides a vacuum switch for the converter lock up and the plug for the NSS / reverse light switch.

You might have an easier time if you find a older Granada / Scorpio A4LD 1985-1989 without computer control.
