I'm with ya on the wiring thing. I work on late model cars too and i prefer the early stuff.

New car = map sensor, maf sensor, knock sensor, tps switch, iac valve, oxy sensors, temp send, oil send, crank angle, injectors, coil packs, computer, fuel pump, multiple earth wires, starter etc etc

Real car = coil, distributor, oil send, temp send, starter, earth, power.

MadMatt wrote:Hey great job on your zoomies! They look like mine! You shouldent need to cut the fenders at all to fit 10" rims. I think what helped me is my rear leafs have been re-arched so even without the shackles i had clearance! Isint the wiring for these cars sooooo simple!!! After working on Toyota's and other newer cars for a living these cars wiring is a breeze.


I did'nt see any need to cut the wheel arch on my car either, the rear end is higher now the leaf springs have ladder bars, although i wont know if im happy with the height untill i get the donk and gearbox in it. the zoomies for the o/s are welded up too, just got to make up the attachments to secure them, im still not looking forward to the wiring, ive figured out what goes where from the dash back, i will be buying myself a workshop manual soon that has a wiring diagram, should do the trick.

OH Man if your wiring is cut up and scaderd then the manual will help you. If the wiring is still wraped up and and connections are good you should almost be able to figure it out without the manuals. They kinda suck for wiring, i have two. Both are diferent for the same car!! You can tell were the wiring harness goes anyway pretty easy. The only trick is going from the standerd gauge cluster harness section to the GT/GS model gauge cluster harness secton. easy swap practically plug and play. Also you should look into a high amp one wire alternator setup youll thank me later!! And PMGR starter with attached solinoid, Small light and easy hook up!!!

Happy birthday mate, i think i got most exits and corners covered with the wiring harness as far as what plugs into what, although some parts of it are missing from the engine bay side, i reckon im in with a chance with a wiring diagram, can you pm me with more details on the one wire high amp alternator & PMGR starter with solinoid thanks...if your drinking beer, and eating birthday cake, give my regards to heweeee when you call him on the big white telephone :D

Have a good one 8-)

Ha you know the E-brake is the one thing i havent got around to hooking up on my bOb. I guess because i never use em on Auto tranns cars that i have drivin. Always use the E-brake when i park my Bullitt though!! I have the cables, but the last time i looked under the car the exaust hangers are going to be in the way it looks like. The List is never done!!

Thanks Fella's,(Dan & pat & Matt)

As for the engine i have a worked 302 that is in my ute at the mo which i will be pulling out soon giving it a clean up and a coat of paint then droping it into the BOB, dont know what's been done to the motor, it goes like a shot cat but,when its out i will pull the sump to see if those magic numbers are on the crank "351" behind that a toploader g-box will need a rebuild as it sticks in gear every now and then, the rear end on the my BOB replica is 9 inch DB, dont know what gears the diff is running yet, ive got a mate who is going nitros on his holden ute and letting go of his square bore holly 650 for mates rates, its near new so that has cut the cost down of buying a new one.

Matt, i will have to get round to fitting the park brake, the exhaust fitter will just have to bend the pipes round the cables LOL.

I wonder how many of you do this when you build cars ?

I seem to promise myself i wont start another part of the car untill the area im working on is finished, bullshit ! i end up finding myself doing a bit on the front, a bit inside, then trying to get the wiring harness ready to go in, then im back on the front end again welding the nosecone support.... i really should get organised, much truth in barrys piece from here, piece from there, mine would be ive done a bit over here and a bit over there.
