The first photo looks like it is just a general earth wire, is it a brown wire under the black protective sheath? if so I,d suggest attaching it to the chassis .

But then again..... I hate electrics so maybe talking a load of tosh

cheers

So would it be safe to say any brown wires with a circle type connection at the end will just be earths that should be attached to the chassis (eg like the lights and the bundle of 4-5 by the fuse box)? Also is it safe to attach more than one earth to the same bolt?

The first one looks like an earth wire (as HandyAndy said).....I think.
The second one looks like a connection on to one side of the coil....I have a the I4 engine and the coil connection looks like that.....
You can put more than one earth wire on a connection.
Hope this helps.

Ok so that's one down with the earth. Not sure what you mean about the +12v ignition feed for the coil though as I'm a bit of nub when it comes to this... Do I put it on something like the starter or where does that connect onto? My engine was a cvh cfi (injection)

The 12v ign feed will come from the ignition switch, not sure which terminal. Should be live when the key is in the run position. Hope this helps.

you should have an ignition coil with + - connections, but looks like your missing the filter as you need a female fitting not the male one.

Hmm total nub questions then, what does the ignition coil look like?? Is that the same thing as the coil pack? I don't remember having anything over that side of the engine other than the alternator, starter motor, & power steering pump?
