Ran into problem with the radiator and collector pipe...just dropped it off at a shop to tig it .... pie cut and bit to clean it all up...

Also while I was figuring that out...trying to figure out running the wires stealth tuck look. Looking at making a similar fuse block and relay setup..and get switches....any wiring gurus?8428e187b6f5d6d824ce045e2f0f102f.jpg5716fa1ebe9c27cf305b02162e54499c.jpgb756e49b5bcb821d952be06441b2d18f.jpgf501ddac86832332563fe434115c3152.jpg919f3c6e2c7c0a52e93081f3ee8ac6d5.jpg60145dcf533b850733db28a51b12b95f.jpg08168111ed64a76c40d6124679a4cbf8.jpg

I'd probably put it on the firewall. Drivers side. :yes:

Other spot might be on the rad support, top center.

I've taken a little break. Have a honey do list on it..

Wiring

Driveshaft ( heard a 2wd v6 explorer driveshaft will fit)

Shifting linkage

Hook up master cylinder

Fluids

Timing

Possibly convert carb to e85 or buy a 750 and rebuild/ convert to blow through/ convert to e85

Change the feed line from -6 to -8

Later this month I'll be starting the wiring of this beast. Need a rewire.. opinions and examples would be appreciated. I was looking at the speedway 22 circuit harness or the 18 circuit harness. Any ideas?

I'm going to be adding:

Line loc

Msd btm

Aeromotive a1000

Aux fans

HIDs

Fog lights

Reverse lights(rear aux lights)

I'll add relays and switches and a fuse panel to run the right awg to the components

You need to list out EVERYTHING. Headlights, turn signals, interior, dash, Radio, Defrost, Efan, etc. Then determine what type of circuit they will need to be one. You mention the MSD box, but that won't go through the fuse block. A1000 won't either. you'll need a power distribution center as well. 

 

I've used the Painless universal harness before and it was really really nice to work with.Never used a Speedway, I expect it to be very similar but I know they saved the $200 difference somewhere and it wasn't just the name.

I was looking at a smaller circuit kit that has all of the common wiring. And add another fuse distribution with the rest of the add on. To make sure I have the proper wire size for the amp draw. Add the relays and switches
