Anyone ever install one maybe we could combine the tech inspection with a wrenching weekend? I really really need some help.:hmm:

    I've got two days into this thing so far it starts and I've got low beams!:eek:

    If FJerome and HudyHue join the wiring party, I'm in.

    They both installed new systems in thier rigs so it should be a snap.


    I will help you Zip-Ty things out of the way.

    I used a ez wire and it was simple. Not sure about a painless, I have heard they are more PAINFUL. Let me know when you need some help, I can drop by after work since you are only a mile or so from work

    I vote we wire it like FJromes pre-72 diagram. The 1978 diagram we were using had way more lines on it going to things you didn't need. (Throttle Positioning Sensor, Manifold Temp Sensor, Carb fan, etc.)

    With the painless you basically set it up how you want. It comes with so many circuits and then the wires are marked where they should go. You dont have to always use the wires like for a horn. I used my horn wire for another accessory. Really it should be pretty easy if you are gutting the entir wiring system. Let me know when you want some help.

    I installed a complete painless kit into a 74 FJ40. It was pretty easy. THe only hard part is keeping the stock light switch becasue almost all of the lights and signals go through it. GIve me a call if you need help and I can come up.

    Also have a large laminated diagram the same as Jerome's pic that I could dig out so you can use overhead pens to mark on ans make corrections.

    You will have to set a date and time if you want assistance.
