The inside harness should be mounted on the fire wall, and your engine/under hood wires will bolt onto the bulkhead connector from the engine/firewall side making a tight seal.

Re: EZ Wiring Project

Not Positive, But I'm pretty sure he's doing a mockup run with the wires..

Re: EZ Wiring Project

Can you explain this a little more? Is the bulkhead what I've been calling the fuse block? There are several connectors that came with the kit. I can post some pics of them. I didn't give them much attention just yet as I figured they were for the alternator, lights, etc. The instructions are OK, but the kit is for '70's GM vehicles. It's not an OEM kit. I see now that all but the under-dash wires go through the fire wall.

Re: EZ Wiring Project

The firewall is also called a Bulkhead..

The Fuseblock is what fits on the firewall and bolts up under the dash (I believe it has 4 long thin screws that go through the fuseblock to the outside piece of the fuseblock and holds the two pieces together). Then the rest of that block is installed on the engine side of the firewall and scews or bolts to the inside piece. That whole unit is where the wires go through the firewall or bulkhead.. The inside part is a block and what holds the fuses, so that whole thing is called the fuseblock.

Re: EZ Wiring Project

There is plastic wire loom as well as fabric. We've discussed this before, but not in depth. The price seems to be similar. Is one better than the other? Is one for a specific application?

Re: EZ Wiring Project

Here we go again. Finally got some time to get back at the '72. I became aware of the over spray from my paint job. With some heavy duty cleaner and a stiff brush, I think I got tabs(?) cleaned enough.

On a sicker note, the headlight switch connecter is missing. Shouldn't be surprised, but it just sucks the momentum right out of ya. The good thing is, Rock Auto has them anywhere from about $8.00 to just over 20.

Re: EZ Wiring Project

Can anyone help me identify these? The larger one is on the steering column. The black one with 2 prongs is right above it, and the others are to the left of the column. Thanks.
