Well Jim, my '81 doesn't have anything on the outside of that cover, just the 2 small studs that would give the assembler the option. The threads don't appear as though anything was ever there. I'd help you research but as I went to open the hood the right side latch failed to open, so after opening it the hard way I see I have to get a new cable pronto so I'm indisposed temporarily.
Jimmy B. Just can't wait to get on the road again.
Ooops. Sorry 'bout that rr. I just ass..umed all 81's were the same. DUH. The wires appear to be 1 black and four brown after cleaning them as best I could. Maybe "light brown" or heavily faded orange for those four, but not near tan.

Man, I hate that for you ace. Had that happen to me once after being pulled over by a cop who loved the car and wanted to look at the engine. Sort of embarrassing. I keep saying I'm going to install an emergency release but it keeps getting put off. Need to move that up on my priority list.
Thanks sarge. I was thinking maybe a starter interrupt for the theft system. I'll follow up on your suggestions and see what I can track down. I may be seeing the wire colors wrong. I think "bubba" may be working part time for my optician. lol
