Mike, can you show a pic of how you fixed and wired this up?The coil on the OP's engine has been upgraded to the 74-78 coil w/ ballast resistor on it, and has the updated starter with ballast bypass from the solenoid.
I picked up a October 1969 production/ 1970 US market FJ40
it has a later 1F - Serial F 372729. Looks to be around a september of 1971 1f....
2. does anyone have a good picture of what the harness - starter - coil wiring should look like?
this is a hodge podge of things that were done potentially to marry this 1971 1f to this 1970 chassis I would guess...I have never seen this junction block thing on the coil like this. But then I've never owned a 1970 with a 1971 engine -- only older and newer fj40s/fj45

Yes, that works.Mike, on my 69, i`m installing the same coil and starter that you have. I believe my harness is the same as yours. BW, BY, W. I`m still waiting for parts to arrive but i`m going to wire it up when it i get it. I did a quick sketch of how I think it should be connected. In your pic above, I think the connections to the ballast resistor on the coil might not be correct.
@FJ40Jim does this look correct?
