So I just changed out my cap and rotor on the distributor and found a wire hiding that kind of looks chewed through. I've looked in the manual but couldn't find anything. Does anyone know what the circled ground wire goes to in this image?

There is a ground wire between the wiper motor and the valve cover. That may be the wire your showing in the picture. I took 2 pics of my 89. shows both ends of that wire.

Being that the wiper motor is mounted on the firewall which is grounded to the frame with the negative battery wire also grounded to both the body and the frame, it's probably overkill, but it is to insure that the wiper motor is grounded properly. There is also a braded wire that runs from the valve cover back to the firewall. It's important that everything is at the same potential so grounding everything together accomplishes that.
