Wiring Harness

Started connecting the wiring harness up to the car. Thanks to the guy i bought the motor from for labeling most of the important connection points. We were able to connect most stuff up including motor, instrument panel,  transmission,  fuel pump,  ignition,  battery,  and other bits. My steering signal and lighting assembly seems to be different from the harness and will require some re-wiring to make use of the signal and lighting switches.  Will have to locate and attach the thread the harness through the chassis in its final resting place later.

Next to get the fuel supply, cooling supply and exhaust sorted so that we can get the engine running.

Updated:

Cut circular holes in the firewall to mount the factory wiring harness seals and allow the harness to pass through.  Detached and re-attached the necessary engine wiring to thread it through the hole.  Factory seal/gasket fits well into holes.

April 10, 2016 – Update – Started thinning out the wiring harness to try to cut down on the bulk. Lighting and engine running so excess wires can be weeded out. Removed radio, hvac, headlight retractor and door wiring to start.
