Re: Interior Wire Harness ^% B Bodys



Dennis my wire harness kit was an XP-777 (SN:287685) It cost me $440. I also got the VR-88 regulator and the VR-99 reg harness for $29. This was around '09. It was a complete kit from front to rear including the dash. It came with a GM headlight switch and the VR was Ford. I did away with the bulkhead connector which was what they expected. It's a tedious process. The only wire I didn't replace was for the dome light as it was fine and I didn't want to screw up the headliner. The gauge base required some bayonet type pins which I found at Radio Shack. I think I still have a few of them left. I probably spent about 3 months doing it and I fought working around the heater. I highly recommend removing the heater as the dash access is tremendously improved and the heater is ready to take out. I pulled the steering column, seats, carpet and glove box. The instrument panel was removed of course. I found mounting the VR with the fuse block on the interior firewall behind the brake pedal was a perfect spot. The fuse block is my favorite part as it has everything on it you may need now or down the road. I ran extra wires to the trunk in case I want to add a trunk light, aux power or?? I did also add the third brake light and I have an electric fuel pump. The wires are marked about every foot with one showing wheel it came from and the other showing where it's going. So you can grab a wife anywhere along its length and know what it is operating. Very nice for any troubleshooting that may occur. Gary P is rewiring his with unmarked wire but he is using labels to do the same thing. I really liked the kit I got and I did have a few questions which were readily answered by tech support. I do recommend them but there are other good ones too which are probably equal. I am just familiar with what I used.

Rich,

I've reached a point where for safety and reliability I need to consider rewiring the dash and engine compartment at a minimum.

I've looked at Ron Francis kits.  The AC-68, BB-68 and WR-95 range from an everything kit to much more minimal I would be interested in the level of kit you installed.

What did you do at the bulkhead connector?  I've considered drilling it out and passing the wires through or completely eliminating it and just installing a grommet in it's location.

Thanks
Dennis C.

I used a Ron Francis kit. It worked well but it requires a good set of diagrams and some Kentucky windage to get it right. Especially for the dash wiring. The wires are there but you have to figure out some connectors for a few items. I love the fuseblock!! It is compact and very comprehensive. I found it fit great behind the brake pedal on the interior firewall. Real easy to access but out of harms way.

Hi Jim

You might want to check out Evans Wiring in Erie, PA. Mopar only!
I had my '63 Sport Fury re-wired by a resto shop last year and I mentioned Evans and that's who he uses all the time.
They have a web site.

Good luck!

Hello Mopar Heads,

I have been re-adjusting the garage after all the distractions of the last five months of 2016 in Low Country, SC. 

I found several Mopar catalogs from about 1965 - 1978 and the first publication, 5 page thick material, put out by the “Ramchargers” when they went into the engine building business as a Corp.

The Hustle Stuff Catalog and others have a lot of Parts Numbers. If anyone needs assistance in a HP Part # let me know and I will see if the literature I have can help. Direct contact is ok too.

My question is I found a reference to M&H Electric Fabricators Mopar Wiring Harness for 1964 and up Mopars.

Has anyone used their products?

Any comments would be appreciated.
