Hea Fella`s!!!

Anyone got a copy of "Painless"or any other after market wiring instructions? I want to see a set of instructions before i tackle my COE. It does`nt matter to me what the application is for. I will gladly pay for a set of instructions that come with the kit, or set!
Thanks a bunch !!!

Hey, Slider

EZ-Wire is only $165.00 ... instructions are found moreso on the wires themselves than in a manual -- each wire is color coded and labled every 6 inches or so, telling you exactly where each wire goes.

The most helpful "instructive" part of the manual is basically to lay the kit out, look at each wire (labeled) and where it's going ... you'll probably want to re-route some wires, like removing the AC wires from the Front Section and moving them over to the Dash Section. There are 4 Sections -- Front Section, Column Section, Tail Section and Dash Section.

If you take the time to consider each and every wire and where it's going to, you'll make the whole job go pretty easy. Any wire that you won't be using, just pull the fuse for those, roll 'em up and stash them under the dash for future additions that you can use them for (AC, Power Seats, etc.).

You can check out my 10-day escapade HERE

I would do the main power wire (usually from the starter to the fuse box, in most kits) differently, and I'd wire the headlights with relays ... and if you have an electric fan, I'd wire it with 2 relays. I'm doing all that to my truck right now and posting instructions HERE

Thinking back to your first post on the fan problem, you sure have come a long way. Great pictures and explanation.
Maybe there are some "Car wiring songs" to be written.
(BTW looking at your terminal blocks, are your fusible links inside the plastic tubing ? could be trouble if one did burn)

Hey, Malc

Man, have I ever come a long way! Much thanks to YOU!!

My voltage gauge doesn't even move now when the fan kicks in!!!

A song or two is bound to happen about this truck ... no doubt.

Yes ... my fusible links ARE inside the split loom. Mark Hamilton says that's good. The fusible links have fireproof coating (that's what distinguishes them from regular wires) and adding the split loom helps keep any sparks that they make (if they ever do fry) from igniting anything else. I imagine the split loom would melt and help smother the sparks. ALWAYS try to keep fusible links away from anything that may ignite.

THANKS for mentioning it, though.

Something new for me, thanks.
Did you buy the nylon tube from MAD, itīs the best. I had used some from Taylor and that melted in the engine compartment.

I bought my split loom and ties from Home Depot ... the ties are nylon ... the split loom doesn't say, but it's held up nicely for the first year of use.

Hea guys!!!

Crazy Larry , How are ya doing? It is a no go yet on that trike project . It will be up soon. Got side tracked jerking out the 455 Olds and rebuilding a 350 to put into the engine compartment. If ya remember the 455 Olds was behind the cab in the COE. It is a lot more work putting it up front. No excuse for not checkin in everynow and again!!!! Have a super fun day Larry!!!
