Default What are these plugs??

Been working on my swap for quite a while now and havent found out what these two plugs go to. they are off the wiring harness. its an 87 turbo manual wiring harness.





car turns over and wants to start but wont. I checked the fuel pump, its good. checked all my grounds, they're good. is there suppose to be a ground for the coil packs??

Hi!
I'd love to know what they are too - ta!-- with regards to the coil pack being earthed - YES!!!!!!!! - my coil pack earth wire was on the point of parting company so I made up a new one---longer than the old one - - twin wires connected at each end with a ring connector and made sure they made a good clean contact both ends --one to the plate with a small self-tapping screw and the other to the CYLINDER HEAD at the inlet manifold clamp-up stud/ nut . absolutely no problems starting once the engine turns over.

Really? could you take a picture of the ground wire for the coil pack?

Hi! Re : earth wire :
From memory , I made up a new earth wire because my old one was in a very poor condition , by drilling a hole to fit a new self-tapping screw between the coil leads for easy screwdriver access at the front of the plate and then measuring and making a new lead to fit the inlet manifold clamp-up bolt/nut on the cylinder head . It's a very good idea to check the continuity at this point as it is now very easy to repair/check/clean -not forgetting that the plate is electrically insulated by the rubber mounting grommets . No starting problems now , especially since I fitted the relay mod to the starter, kicks in every time now!
