just did high idle mod

I've been lookin' at the posts about the high idle mod for a few days now and decided to try it this evening. WOW, that's easy. If anyone else is thinking about doing this, DO IT. Total time, including posting this, about 15 min. Hardest part, besides finding my dang tools, getting my big ol fingers in small places. Just thought I'd let everyone know, in case anyone else is thinkin about doin it.

That's on the list for sure. I'm doin' guages SOON, but can't beat anything free. zoo-dad might get done this weekend, depending on other "chores". but anyway, thanks for the suggestion!

Foglight mod! It is almost easier than the high idle mod and I love having the fog lights on with the high beam.

Can't find one of the wires...

Hey Guys, I don't know if I'm just missing it or just stupid. I found the cut wire for AUX switch #4, behind the fuse pannel under the dash.
The ebay write up (Above) states that the other wire is in an 11 wire bundle behind the parking brake. Well I cannot find the purple/light green wire in that bundle. Also that bundle doesn't seem to have the pre cut wires that were mentioned.
Am I missing something? Looking at the wrong bundle of wires? Maybe I have the right bundle of wires but I just need to unwrap them further than I have.
Anyway can anyone post any pictures of the right wires under the dash to do this mod? Maybe a picture of how you connected the jumper wire?

Thanks very much in advance... I have gotten so much excellent info on this website! This mod sound like it should be easy if only I was sure I had the right wires. I really want to do this mod soon, I think it will help with warmups this winter when I'm snowmobiling. THANKS!
