lol, I have seen that kind of wiring. It must be common in old trucks.

 

I have no idea why its so appealing for a glob of spaghetti mess dangling

Id help if I was closer, I might be coming back to OR soon, have some family in Bend.

 

I had a 62 F100 uni with a 5.0HO + 4spd adapted.  

 

Things that make that truck lovable is the Taillights/Tailgate, just like the Datsun NL320.

Get'r running with a basic simplified wiring setup.

I bought the FiTech 600 setup.

 

It is a single wire Alt. I have to machine a mounting bracket for the new Gilmer Pulleys to align right.

 

The wire setup in it now is a Painless but the guy didn't terminate anything to the correct length nor covered them with anything. Just zip tied and draped all over.

 

I picked up some rolls of flex line and shrink tube to get it looking better. I have to machine a few bulkhead pass through plates.

The good thing about old truck is the wiring is not hell bent on making you pull out a gun and just shoot the damned thing. I like it neat and tidy.

The ability to stop was a scary thing. Braking had to be planned 500 meters in advance.

It is like my Volvo van - brakes that are made to stop 1,5 ton car need  to stop 2,5 ton car.

added a power Rack to the I-Beam. 

 

Problem though. The inner tie-rods are too long. The wheels are toe in 3-5° and I’m adjusted all the way in on the ball joints.

 

im thinking I will have to machine a set of billet knuckles that will allow the proper alignment.

 

More problems with PerformanceOnline products......

Just take that nut off for some extra threads ?

 

I thought about that.

 

i think I can make a couple narrow jam nuts on the lathe that would allow the toe to = 0°

POL just called back and they are sending out New items. 

 

Longer Driver side inner tie-rod and shorter Pass side inner tie-rod. Along with the correct mount bracket and push rod for my brake booster. 

 

Now the steering rack mount won’t be right under my oil pan and I will be able to adjust my alignment. ??
