how do you expect a electronic 4 speed to plug into a car with no wiring for it? The 3 speed is an old mechanical design. No electronics

there's a doco somewhere where a motor was changed from centrepoint to multipoint. that way less hassles OR change full wiring loom/ECU

or you could leave the 'new' motor in but run as a centrepoint?
