Original Pro flo ECU mounting

I really need some help figuring out where to mount a Pro flo 3500 Ecu in my 68. I want it inside, if possible. I intended to mount it up behind the glove box.....wont work, heater box in the way....will not go in the glove box, the ECU is too wide. Can't go under the seat, cable too short.....just not much space up under the dash.

Have done very little fab work, so I am kind of stumped.....

Anyone have pics of how theirs is mounted? It would be a great help.

The coil is on the firewall above the heater, the ign amp is on the core support where the battery used to be....

Just need to get this ECU mounted .......

I live in the south (SC) so I guess if the heater box had to go, I could block of the opening and have tons of room.....but at some point in time I want to go with an A/C unit so that space will be needed for that

Thanks

Thanks in advance

Re: Original Pro flo ECU mounting

Yes the glove box is out....the only flat surface is just above the heater box....and there is not enough room between the top of the heater box and the dash.....

Re: Original Pro flo ECU mounting

If you have a console there's a decent amount of room under there. How big is the ECU?

Re: Original Pro flo ECU mounting

Funny that you mentioned that...I do not have the console yet...but I have been thinking that it could mount on the trans tunnel in front of the shifter...and be hidden by the console....

I will have to measure the ECU to answer your question....

Really appreciate the ideas......

Re: Original Pro flo ECU mounting

If itn will fit under the consol..no gauges I assume..it would definately fit above the clove box on the fire wall... may mean making up a simple bracket between it and the curve of the firewall just under the cowel area....up where the factory loom clips are welded to the firewall.
How big is this ecu?
I have my alarm and stuff mounted up there.....

Re: Original Pro flo ECU mounting

The ECU is 8" wide 8" long and 2" thick.....bigger than most of the newer ones....

Steptoe: Do you happen to have a pic of how they are mounted, and the bracket attachment?

Re: Original Pro flo ECU mounting

I went with the XFI on my Proflo. Mounted it behind battery as it would not fit in same places you tried

Re: Original Pro flo ECU mounting

I just spent sometime messing around with cardboard....the Ecu for the original Pro flo is bigger than the XFI you have in your picture....It will not fit in that space the way yours is......i.e....bolting the top of the plate to the fender edge......

I guess I will figure something out.....sooner or later....probably much later...

Holy cow that ecu is HUGE!! If you are going to have A/C in the car about the only place I can see it fitting is under one of the front seats, or in the engine bay.

Re: Original Pro flo ECU mounting

Harness is too short for under the seat....and out by the battery....Frustrating....there has to be someone that has a Pro flo 3500 in a 68 camaro....

On the trans tunnel in front of the shifter is a possibility.....but I do not have the shifter (auto) installed....and I think where the cable comes out the front, is going to make it difficult to put the ECU in front of it....

Frustrating!

Going to try making a bracket to mount it behind the glove box door.... Would love to put it under a seat, if someone made a harness extender......

No.. cant realy see up there..which is why the alram is up there with the hidden radio areal...and the vent hose goes thru there also.
Rocketrod above expesses my thoughts exactly.

Re: Original Pro flo ECU mounting

Ok...I think I know what I am going to do....the battery is in the trunk...so the space were is was is vacated....I can fab up some brackets and mount it there....

Not what I really wanted, so if anyone else has a better place keep those ideas coming...

I can always move it if I come up with another plan

Thanks
