    Escort Diesel Engine

    hi back again after a long time,old injury, eventualy last week got diesel engine out up bank, then fitted the 1.3 fiesta engine, got it running nice but a few electric problems, ie no ignition lights on dash,i wired starter ok off switch,wired coil off old glow plug relay feed , plugged alternator in no ignition light and no power to it from wire, no oil light and again no power to it, temp gauge not working,lights etc all work, its 20 odd years since i put engine and wired it up but i marked the wires i thought were right , buying another oil pressure switch as tested it and the terminal not going to earth as i thought the other one did, The problem is at 70 i cannot see the wires very well lol ,so anyone any ideas why no dash lights and no power to them, if no luck might do it off the battery with switches and panel lights mounted somewhere , i altered a lot of wires when i did the diesel conversion.
