D-Jet trigger points plug to the wiring loom.

You're lucky I found this piece of paper in my store room, saved from when I had to replace the plug a long time ago.

I don't know the name for this connector type.
My car's a '74 and can't explain why there's a yellow coloured wire instead of blue in your '73.

Hmmm I tried to connect it as I thought but it ran like a dog - had to have the accelerator flat. It seemed flooded coughed and spluttered and after awhile it wouldn't run at all. Apart from the connector falling apart and spraying contact cleaner on the throttle regulator on the side of the carbie i havent touched a thing?

Sorry, not able to help as I’ve just gone away on holidays and unable to provide picture of spare/used trigger points.
