HELP Confused about trans tunnel wiring / harness in an 85

Hey, I am putting together an 85 5 speed i got in a pile of parts and tried to hook up the neutral safety and reverse lights but the plugs are different and i cant identify these two plugs in the wiring diagram i got online. Im kinda stuck. Dont want to just leave it all unconnected.

Are these the plugs i need to connect or jump?? Please help!

I actually dont know. I got the car as a 5 speed with pedals, clutch cable, etc, already in place. The transmission in there now appears to be a 87-93 style with the NSSwitch on the top cover coming down to a two prong plug pictured.

From what i have read automatic cars came with two plugs in the tunnel... like mine.

sounds like you don't have the manual trans harness

you don't need them, as long as the wires go to the correct locations, but it helps

this a carb?

do you have the clutch safety switch for crank?

the reverse light is just a switch, so all you need to do is find the power on the old plug for the reverse light

a test light to battery positive will work to id.
