I think they were just asking in regards to the harness though, alternator should still be okay. I'll post a picture when I see the truck hopefully tomorrow to collect

Yes, specify the largest gauge wire they offer for the alternator.

Filets and lobster tails all around then!

But thanks a lot guys. I emailed autosparks back saying asking for the larger gauge so hopefully I can order it. They said they maybe be able to shave a few weeks off if I do air freight and get the order in within the next few days so I'll let you guys know what they say.

They also said it may take longer to order an engine harness but they're pretty simple and I think I could do that one myself .

Ordered the main harness today- but autosparks gave the email of what sounded like someone in their company but was a britishwiring.com email. No skin off my back I just thought they were different companies. They said they'll charge me when it gets shipped and hopefully it gets here soon, I opted for air mail and didn't get any extras added onto it.

yeah, this guy seems to have the US contract for British Wiring. They won't sell direct to US citzens have to go thru him. It gets shipped from the UK to you. Be aware there won't be any wiring diagrams with it either. Find a couple of good ones and make copies, one to keep notes on and one to get dirty and throw away.

Read this it can help; http://www.groups.tr-register.co.uk/...%20Colours.pdf

Harnesses are arriving!

Hey all,

So British Wiring, who I now realize handle Auto Sparks orders, got my harnesses to me freaky fast. What's more impressive, I told them I was unsure of my engine harness amperage originally so they sent me one, for free, that they had in stock and said if it fits, keep it and they'll charge me, if not just send it back. Not sure if they are on the forum but thanks British Wiring and Autosparks.

That being said, the main harness is in. The engine harness is in but may not be the right size, and Safari HP has my rear harness en route. For all you guys who offered to help, how is next weekend (weekend of the 16th)? I'm flexible but it has to be on a weekend.

Should I start yanking the old wiring? Or should that be held off until the day of (idk if it makes the install easier or if there would be any clues as to what was damaged/fried/burnt etc)?

Leave the old stuff in place until you can match it up with the new stuff. If you want to be productive, start pulling the dash parts.

Sounds good. Any ideas on how to get the top dash screws out? They're fairly stripped/seized in place and b/c of the angle of the windshield I cant get a good hold of them....the rest of the dash comes quickly

That may or may not work. I was thinking about the above.

Usually a stubby screw driver works or you can use a driver bit and a wrench.

Last time I tried I don't remember if I had a stubby screw driver but it wouldn't budge. Even tried the trick where you put a fat rubber band in the screw head for extra grip....

Are you using posi bits? I think the main screws are larger as well #3. Use a lot of down pressure.
