Engine Gauge Feed Harness
« on: January 04, 2019, 07:27:54 PM »
I had to replace the engine gauge feed harness as I had purchased a small block application.

Questions ...
Is this the right one?
Does this require the ignition coil to be mounted to the intake rather than to the DS cylinder head?  It looks like the wires will be too short unless I move it from the cylinder head.   
Are all three j hooks used for the wiring harness along the valve covers?
What happens with the oil pressure line since it is no longer used?  Taped off with black electrical tape?

Thanks
Ron

It looks about right . I suppose you will know when you attach it . The coil goes on the passenger side head unless it is a thermactor equipped car. in which case it is mounted on the intake. The white with red stripe oil sender wire is snipped off where the wire leaves the wrapping . Typically it is not taped. There is no need. It is not connected to anything and it doesn't go to any gauge. I have seen some with  a piece of tape but that is out of the ordinary.

Very good.  Thank you Bob!

I will snip the oil sender wire and leave the j hooks in place along the valve cover.  Ignition Coil - passenger side on GT500 big block?

Driver side on the forward intake bolt is typical for bigblock. SB is on passenger side head.
