HelP: Identify year of dash wiring harness?

Problem: I was sold an underdash harness that was supposedly a 1987 harness. I installed it. There are many plugs left over, probably about 4-7 or so. I think this dash harness is from a 1990 or later.

Related problem: The car will not spark. There is power to the coil and distributor, but no spark. The previous owner "converted" the car to a Mass Air Flow car (in a very ****ty and unsuccessful way), so the ECU I have is the MAF type (A9L ECU). The car was running before, so I don't think that is the problem. Also, the engine harness I previously had was a 1987 with the MAF additional harness. The new harness has no MAF provision, I will have to buy the additional MAF harness (the old one was crappy and had been spliced, etc).

Question: Can anyone help me identify the year of my "new" underdash harness? Any colors or other identifying features? I will post pics of it, tho it is installed and will be hard to see. I suspect the extra plugs are for airbags. I understand that a 1990 or later dash harness will not work in a 1987 car. As always, all comments/advice are greatly appreciated. This car has been a nightmare. Anyone want to buy it? SAC, CA.

If it does not have any tags on it with the identifying numbers, then identifying exactly what you have will be next to impossible.

I stumbled across this - 5.0 Harness Details - that may help.
