It's been awhile....Thought I would post an update.

I burned up the brand new engine harness on the first test drive .......the red FLD wire on the back on the ALT. came off (when driving or I did not hook it up) grounded out on the exhaust manifold melted wires together back to the FW. rebuilt the harness, tested the alt. it turned out to be bad along with the brand new starter relay switch-grounding out internally.

After fixing the harness, replacing Alt., starter relay switch, did a tune up with plugs, wires, cap & rotor, coil, voltage reg. 

I did the AMP gauge bypass (www.madelectrical.com/electricaltech/amp-gauges.shtml) added fusible links installing volt meter, gauges are still out working on wires that where stripped back for whatever reason.

Haven't started the truck gonna go over everything..... but not a lot time spent on the Trailduster...... Did heater core in Kia, got the Samurai running.
