It looks like the schematic shows that circuit going back to the starter but I can't be certain (it's difficult to track the schematic lines), Maybe I'll take the Schem down to Alpagraphics and have them blow it up and I can wallpaper one side of my garage with it.
I would recommend three things:
1) yes, take the large wiring schematic .jpg file from Pantera Place
down to a print shop and have it blown up to 18" x 24" or greater. This will cost you less than $5. You can then use a ruler to trace the run for every wire in your car. This is a MUST!
2) buy the ATO Fuse panel from Pantera Electronics
. Don't ask why (there are too many reasons) ... just do it!
3) once you've spent some time with the wiring schematic, you should run new wires for each gauge: to each sending unit in the engine bay, create a new ground post under the dash and also run a new +12v wire to the new fuse panel. I can help you with this on a step-by-step level if need be as I just completed the same work over the winter. Some of the work was chronicled on my work-in-progress BLOG
