Large Thanks To the DOC and All others that helped me out in the lectric' forum!!!
Just wanted to drop a note and thank Doc (esspecially) and the otehrs that have helped me out the last few weeks in the finishing details of a complete rewire and mods therein, Did my first cruise last night (Sat) and everything worked flawlessly, no smoke release and only one problem remains (which I know the problem, new sending unit will be here tomorrow) . the lights burn brighter, the charging system actually works, my headlight harness doesnt catch on fire anymore, and it starts everytime!!! Heck even my turn signals work! (AMAZING!) I still have to wire in the remote entry/remote airbag system and ignition cutoff but wanted to get a decent length road test in first...
again thanks guys, if I hadnt forgotten my camera I would have taken a picture of the non-event event (anytime my truck comes home without catching on fire is a event!) With the new harness hopefully I'll have many more of those non-events!
Thanks again blokes!
