You should get the multi plug connectors for the gauges.

Dash top pod & the locker switches wired, run out of 6 way housings but have enough info now to start the main bulkhead loom whilst I wait for more parts to arrive.





The 'main/sub tank' switch swaps the fuel gauge senders from the main running tank with the HP LS pump to the aux tank with just a transfer pump. The 'fuel pump' switch is to transfer fuel from aux to main.

Time to make a pegboard

Beginnings of the bulkhead loom, still lots to do but you get the idea. Twist ties from the local super market work great for holding the bundles of wires together

Ran out of seals for the connectors so going to be a few days before I can fully finish it off.

I'm sure it's your plan, but before final installation, be sure to replace those twist ties (if they are metal wire cores) with e-tape, or the like, as the material degrades leaving just the metal to rust and eat/rub away the wire loom sheathing.

They'll be gone, just there to make it quick & easy to add wires into the loom bundles without wasting tape or zip ties... and there free too

Thanks... Glad your enjoying it. I find the wiring rather relaxing.... after a busy day running avalanche road closures on the highway

X2 However, the one problem I do have with it is the fact that I will probably never get the chance to see it on the trails.

More wires added to the bulkhead loom & the fuse/relay panel's getting quite populated.

Wife got back from visiting her family in the UK and brought me a present.... My Rakeway Engineering drive shaft steady bearing.



Next to get quotes on the short (10") intermediate drive shaft and the front & rear ones.



What an excellent piece of kit... well chuffed.... and a wonderful wife

Nice. Is this needed because the engine/box is mounted quite far back? or so you can angle the prop over the crossmember?
