Re: Wiring Harness Help
Mark have you tried searching for "painless" here? American Autowire and one other that escapes me at the moment is more of a plug and play option. Also, the supplier provides some nifty upgrades if you want a modern alternator or HEI etc. Painless is more of a one-size-fits all and requires you to reuse connectors and cope with some customization issues yourself.
Whatever you decide on, get a schematic and become familiar with the layout before you start. When it comes to wiring it's important to have a good understanding of how everything is suppose to be connected - it'll save you a lot of grief in the long run. Check the stickies in the electrical forum for a link to color wiring diragrams which are much better than the OEM diagrams found in the assembly manual. And if you don't already have one, invest 15 or 20 bucks in a digital volt-ohm meter. It'll be a valuable tool for testing your circuits and troubleshooting.
