Neutral safety ground on cj7

Hey everyone, I'm new to the forum, and hope to get to hear from a lot of jeepers out there. But today I have a need some advice. I've been rebuilding a '83 CJ7 and I'm down trouble shooting my dash electrical and some other odd and end wiring under the hood. At the top of the motor by the fire wall is a connector that leads 3 wires down to the trans and a black wire with plug that o have noooo ideas where to plug in. Now I have string reason to believe this black wire is the neutral safety ground, but I have a manual transmission. So do I need this wire, if so where would it plug in factory? Or should I jus cut the end off and ground it else where?

Dunno about that wire, but there isn't a neutral safety ground.
Auto systems have positive and negative polarity period.
On the American side of the pond, the negative polarity is connected to the body and is considered "ground" It is usually black, but don't count on that for any given connection... particularly since a lot of connections just go to the nearest chassis to pick up negative polarity or ground.
