Thanks Ben, Chip, and Peter for the wiring references. I have some possibly
ignorant questions:

#1: in a very basic sense, wouldn't the engine start if I have all the
engine components under the hood connected to the '91 200tq 3B harness, ECU
plugged in, and simply applied power to the ECU and fuel pump, and cranked
it over?

#2: is it better to identify and strip all the extra wires from the 3B
harness, or simply make room for the thicker bundles?

#3: how do I read the pinouts for all the miscellaneous connectors under the
dash? I know they usually have at least one pin identified, but I can't find
any illustrations to show them for sure. I am having trouble with color
codes not matching the connector I think I am looking at, or not matching
the one identified pin. Any general guidelines or specific illustrations?

Thanks all for your help. I have been dreading this part of the project for
a long time, and I am wondering if I am making it harder that it needs to
