I've repaired a few of those cooked O2 wires.
The wire exits from the exhaust side of the wiring loom retainer (for want of a better description) which runs along the top of the upper timing case cover. It then dangles down to a pale yellowish white connector about 8 inches down the engine, round about the level of the oil sender.

> Well, had an interesting MR2 day today. Since I couldn't buy a new passenger side seat belt (old one wouldn't retract; unavailable at dealer now)
> Car was throwing oil; it seems to have come from the distributor - not leaking internally so I ordered a new O-Ring.
> Pulled distributor and in doing so managed to break the wire that the O2 sensor connects to - I suspect all the oil coming out of the distributor onto the wire + the exhaust manifold cooked the wire.
> So I am trying to figure out where that wire from the O2 sensor went - hopefully I can solder it back together with some heat shrinked (what do they call that stuff?) -
> Whatever a pro can do in 1 hour I can do in a week ;-)
> I'll bet a lot of those 1st gen cars have cooked wiring harnesses - I see one wire going right under the exhaust manifold -
