    Default Burnt Up

    Well today a buddy and i went to go ice fishing and that didnt work out and we were heading to my house got a call from my mother saying i had to pull my uncle outta mcdonalds parking lot bc his truck caught fire. Well went there got it outta there and now im wondering how hard it is to wire everything in the engine bay mainly because thats where it was. Also need to fix a gas line which caused all of this bull ****. Hes got alot of money into this truck. i think he needs to let the damn thing burn completely but one mans trash is anothers junk lol thoughts, input or whatever

    IT WAS ????? mhhhhh, did u already trashed it ?? lol

    Its actually easy, depending on what all burned up.
    But seriously, i could stick a 6.5 TD in there and it would be a bad A$$ maschine ..3 times more fuel economical and no need to replace and fix whats gone !!

    The wiring harness can be got from the junk yard or off of Craigslist. I only have 1 good one left out of the three that i used to make mine for my 1988 otherwise id box it and ship it to you.. It really is very easy to swap over. and you will also need to replace anything on top of the motor that looks cooked.. Most likely the Distributor depending on damage will need to be done to! But as i said the 350TBi really is very easy to work on and replace the wiring is quite easy as well!

    Well the harness that would be hurt wont have anything t odo with the electronics. Unless you mean he had it out and driving/running.. if so then you will want to look at all the wiring before much else.. and the harness for the wipers is all tied into the wiper motor harness...
