[xj40] xj6 3.2s head gasket replacement done, random wires left over

Hello.

I’m hoping some of you can help me and my dad, the head gasket went
on my 3.2s, we stripped it all and have done it and got it running
again, however we seem to have two wires left over!

We cant figure out where they went, but the terminals are not
corroded so they must have been connected to something.

Please see the photos at:

Its a black 2-pin connector, the same as the air flow / temp sensor
etc (black and blue wires - no colour bands) and the other is a
round white connector, push in style, with a large (2.5mm) blue
wire!

Please Help!!–

Those two connectors are for the Oxygen Sensor ;-

FE31 = 2-way black with a Black wire and a Blue/purple wire

FE32 = white with spade terminal

The should connect to the wiring from the Oxygen sensor
(which is in the exhaust down pipe on the other side of the
engine) at a point adjacent to the oil dipstick on the inlet
side.–
