New Loom

If you have an old, assembled resto-mod and you have a mix of the old chassis wire and the more modern loom and someone says to you, "Ya know, it'd look better if it all were blue!" or green or red or whatever color other than black), you are to immediately reach out and slap them on the back of the head. If there' response is, "Ow, but really, it'sd look so cool if..." slap them again, they didn't learn the first time.

But it does look better.

Yeah, it still kinda resembles a spastic octopus, but I'm still playing. Also changed out the vacuum lines for silicon blue as well. On a brighter note, ran a diagnostic today and came up with a 85 and a 234!! the 85 I knew about, kinda have to have a purge canister and solenoid not to get that diagnostic, but the other says my coil is going south! So of course, I have to get an MSD coil with an MSD distributor cap to match, might as well change the plugs and wires, oh and the ignition module actually has a crack in it. Fortunately, my wife has no idea how much I've spent on my truck over the last 3 weeks, it'd kill me. And nope, I'm not whipped, she's just got a two-fer rule. She finds out I spent a hundred bucks on me, she'll go out and spend 200 on her.

Re: New Loom

I know you did this a while ago but thinking of doing it to mine this spring. Just to clean it up a bit

Re: New Loom

You're carburated, aren't you? The original chassis wire wasn't bad, it was relooming the black. I also had the bright idea in moving things around as well.

Re: New Loom

Ya carb for now. Thinking of an injection or diesel swap. But that will be a while. Not sure if I want to do a color loom or just black.
