    allright, I replaced the engine electrical harness, and everythings back online, and working smoothly, except the turn signals... the stupid switch has got to be the biggest `canary' I've ever seen on one of these trucks... if anything electrical is marginaly problematic, the turn signal relay blows out. I'll replace it after I install the new steering column, and interior wireing harness, since I don't really feel like risking blowing out another relay... ( interior wireing is much like the exterior, except more bare wires then not)

    now, all I gotta do is fix the front axle, and I'll be set.

    so when you re-did all this wiring did you use a Painless kit or get another gm harness from the bone yard? how long did it take you?

    [/ QUOTE ]I used the wireing harness from my parts C10 suburban. I still need to do the interior wireing, but the engine wireing was quite surprisingly simple. of course, its a 73, and as such, the only wires in it are the headlights/tailights harness, and the engine power harness, both of which contain only about 10 wires apiece. if it took me 6 hours, only because I took about 5 hours of breaks in the middle to come surf the CK5 forums, the FCS forums* and watch TV.
