It should only have one wire and that goes to ground.

Thanks dsm1990gsx, I went back and looked closer at that timming wire & it does have 2 **** in it.on closer inspection I notice the 2 **** are made of rubber or are little covers on them, the only single wire is black & goes 2 a condencer 2 ground. Am I looking in the wrong place ? over by the battery.

It should be over by the battery, but theres gonna be two similar connector one for ign timing adjustment and the other is a fuel pump test connector. The one you want has a yellow wire w/ a red tracer.

That sucks, well at least the head gaskets are easy to replace on the 1.8.

very true, but dang it sure is cold outside, but i bet there wont be any bad hoses on it after this. I suppose it was supper good luck that the head was not warped or cracked because it got all 4 clinders on the gasket, strange, it had 2 be relly hot but i started it up and it ran fine , so i put water in it and it blowed it back out but it never did miss a lick. now she wants me to change it over 2 auto trany. can this be done with this bisy? like we use 2 do the old cars back in the day?
