Post a picture of the loop/tab.
There should be a picture, its the loop on the outside, between the two rain gutters.

Wraps around the top frame hinge so your hair doesnt get pinched in the pivot, (60s hair .) .)
There's a pouch on the inside that warps the hinge, this loop is on the outside.

That looks something like the top that was on my 67.5 there was a flap that I think that had a couple of snaps to hold it that partially enclosed the frame.

Mine is a 67.5 also, the loop has no snaps, its just a loop that is sewn there.

I've not seen one made quite like that. The picture didn't load for me the first time.

Installing the engine on Eliza.

Seem to have misplaced some wiring since I cannot see where the temp sender attaches to the rest of the harness.

Any help would be appreciated.

The temp sender wire on our 69 1600 comes out of the main harness on the driver front near the washer pump wires. I think its a yellow wire.
