Valentino,

I want to preface all that follows with:

1. I understand English is your second language (and my anything but English is just awful), so that factors in.
2. You need to pull back on some of these photos, particularly like the last one that shows the tape wrapped bundle, since there is no way to guess what they are without having some idea of where they're coming from.
3. You absolutely need to learn how to use the Workshop Manual, for your own sanity, and I intend to try to help in that regard.

The Workshop Manual for your car can be downloaded from the Bentley Heritage Technical Library, 1965-1980. Also get the spare parts manual, too, as this is an essential companion, too.

What you are referring to as threads are called wires in English.

Those wires, all except that last black tape wrapped bit, are all on the thermostat housing. In the Workshop Manual, this area of the car is covered under Chapter L on the cooling system, specifically Chapter L, Section 3. See also this diagram:

28686


The above is for a Silver Shadow II (SY2 series), but most, if not all, of it is applicable to the original Shadow (SY1) cars. You can see the various sensors, and what each one is can be found by looking in the Parts Manual for that part number.

On the RROC Australia Forum see also this topic I started a couple of years ago: Those darned thermostat housing Otter switches - which switch does what?

This should get you started as to what each of those sensors and electrical connections is about.

I can't remember at the moment whether you have a series 1 Shadow (or derivative) or series 2, which can make a difference, so offering your chassis number when asking questions helps your potential assistants, as it becomes impossible to remember who has which car over time. (My two are both series 2, SRH33576 and LRK37110).

UE40361 (which is what I think you mean where you typed 40381) is the sending unit for the temperature gauge in the 4-way gauge on your dash.

UE40365, the otter switch on the thermostat outlet housing that has the hose to the top of the radiator, according to another Silver Wraith II owner, Randy Roberson, "operates the auxiliary fan: I jumpered the harness and it came to life."

UE39593, and I base this on the process of elimination, should have this function, also documented by Mr. Roberson:
"To improve starting and driveaway quality at low temperatures solenoid valves activated by lock-out switches (see Fig. 15), interrupt the vacuum signals to both exhaust gas recirculation valves, ensuring that they remain in the closed position, until predetermined coolant temperatures are reached. The secondary valve cuts in at a higher coolant temperature than the primary valve." If your car is not equipped with EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) then I don't know what that one is.
