HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

Mon Jul 08, 2013 3:56 pm by Admin

When you log on to the site a list of options is shown in a line at the top of the page. One option is labelled "Search", use this option (NOT the search box lower down on the right).

After you click on the upper search option, a drop down box appears. At the bottom of this box is a radio button marked "Advanced …

Hi,
Im wiring a new conversion, a 87 turbo for a carbureted 350. I have the 14 pin harness ready,but what if any of the wires in the harness by the heater hoses are needed to do this conversion?

I thought I saw a pin-out on a thread re: tachometers... I'm not near that stage and I'm hoping that info is in my conversion manual thats on the way. At any rate I used to specialize in auto/HD electical so I'm not worried if it isn't however it shouldn't be that tough to figure out with a test light. I figured buying the manual would save me hours of research although I have already made some desisions without it! Bill

Carb'd engines only require a choke wire, distributor batt wire and tach wire, and starter solenoid wire. The others such as the starter primary and alternator field will be made by you.

Im not sure I understand the OP question. You need no porsche harness wires.

Thanks for replying guys,you say that none of the wires that go in with the old injector and computer wires that enter by the heater hoses are used? None for air conditioning either? If all I need is the wires that exit the interior (14 pin) this should be relatively easy, compared to the rest of this conversion.

Thanx

No you need no harness.

All you need is the wires at the pin connector near the brake master cylinder. This goes for LT conversions as well.

You should disconnect the harness from the computer, pull it through the firewall and sell it. There is no computer for a carbureted engine so if you need to hook up the AC, you will have to either retrofit or custom make a few wires to do this. To help you with AC wiring, we would need to know which model compressor you are going to use.
