Posting again painless wiring!

Cool, that will save me from calling and asking the same question for my 81 project. lol

Let me know how much fun it is when you do it...or if I get mine done first I'll let you know. Although, mine's going from carbed 4 cyl to carbed big block 8 cyl.

I can say that i really haven't worked on engines an wiring. I worked at a small restoration shop for 4 years.(Did mostly body work, sanded my *** off and sprayed primer!) I got some info an learned somethings just by being there an getting my hands dirty...

But i was reading their manual for the kit here it is http://www.painlessperformance.com/M...0501Manual.pdf. I know what their saying about the layout of the painless wiring harness an where wires go..

Here my thing though....
If your vehicle has an existing harness, you will want to retain it for the possible reuse of various Pigtails & Connector housings, particular to your application.

If you do not have an existing harness, there is a package of terminals included with the harness that will enable you to make most of the connections needed.Replacement lighting pigtails & sockets can be readily obtained from your local parts distributor


So is this saying i should try to take the mustang's whole wiring harness out in one peice or in sections??? An whats does this mean (various Pigtails & Connector housings)
Example > like the plug that goes to your power window motor, an then the list goes on an on!
An then i know im going to buy all types of other things, an could i maybe get help on a list of what i will need to buy.
I should probably buy a mustang book an read up on their stock wiring an know it runs. Any info please thanks an for my own look out i called it you can't burn me on these questions.... does that even work on this site!!!

Re: Posting again painless wiring!

There's really two main harnesses on your car. One is referred to as the engine harness and is under the hood. The other is called the dash harness, and as the name implies, it's mostly under the dash. The two connect behind the passenger side kick panel (near where the EEC is).

The engine harness should be all you need. The dash harness just controls stuff like lights, A/C, turn signals, radio, power windows/doors, etc. The dash harness is also a freaking huge mess. It has TONS of wires. The engine harness is not bad at all. There really isn't all that much to it. Since you are going with a carb, yours will be even more simple than an EFI car.

I would recommend grabbing a Haynes manual since they have a pretty good wiring schematic in the back.
