My 68 BB 396 Car has a spade style on it. (Warning Light Equipt'd)
Interesting the end of the green wire has what appears to be a larger Molded connector on it.

Well, as usual things aren't that easy to "pin" down.  Pun not intended.  I've seen an end like that but I think it was for the oil pressure sending unit. This is what I was told the gauge sender and hook up was supposed to be.

Yes, I hear ya.
This is the way my 68 is, Could it be a BB -vs- SB thing?
The wire is dark green & 20 gage, with orig loom cover.
80k miles. Car has been worked on over the years but the harness is very orig.
After study'g the AIM it gets very confusing and the pics seem to look more like your pin connector.

Other than someone with an untouched 68Z (Jerry) or other small block that can definitely say what the idiot light sender and connector looks like, I'll have to try and see if there is something locally to look at.

That's with gauges though right?  That's what mine has but it isn't right so I'm going back to idiot lights which is why I wanted to nail down what the original sender looked like for idiot lights.

Yes.  I have gauges.  It's not right for gauges?  I'll have to bust out my cooking pot and heat up some water and see what happens to it...

That pic of mine is correct for gauges.  They didn't come on my car originally so I'm going back to idiot lights but don't know what they had for a sender.
