67-72 wiring harness???

Hey everyone
I'm getting ready to re-wire my 70 chevy. I was wondering if I could get some input here. I've been shopping and looking at different harnesses, but which one is gonna be the best bang for my buck so to speak? I've been looking at EZ Wire but I have my reservations cause of how much cheaper it is compared to other harnesses. I am on a budget, but this is a very important purchase. I don't want to buy a cheap one and end up having a ton of headaches down the road. I don't have much electrical expericence so I would like a harness that will be easy to install. So what do you guys recommend? Thanks in advance for any info and hint/tips you can give me.

Thanks
Eric

Re: 67-72 wiring harness???

Painless is running a promotion for 100.00 mail in rebate this month i believe. American auto wire, and Ron Francis both have kits for 67-72 direct replacement. you can contact MBGMIKE , or any other site vendor for a quote.

Re: 67-72 wiring harness???

going from personal experience, i like the painless kit. it only took a few days to install but i know if i would have had more time in the day, it have have been done in 2 days.

Its a complete kit and each wire is marked every 12 inches or so with the section and item it is connecting to: taillight section, right turn signal. it has a brand new fuse block with the new style plastic fuses which is great. some of the wires already have the right style connector so all you have to do is plug it in and you are done. another cool feature is that is has the wires setup for add ons like electric windows and fuel pump.

Check out Jegs - 10206 - Painless Custom Wiring Harness
http://www.jegs.com/i/Painless+Perfo...10206/10002/-1


Best money you will ever spend on your truck.

Re: 67-72 wiring harness???

It sounds like most of the guys on here went the painless route. And I'm thinking that might be the best route for me to take. I'd like to get more input on some of the other kits out there. Do any of the direct replacement harnesses have the extra circuits for power windows and such? Since this is my first wiring job I dont want to get a kit thats gonna get me in over my head.

Re: 67-72 wiring harness???

Here is a step by step with pics
http://www.customclassictrucks.com/t...all/index.html


More copy and paste action:
Painless 10206 wiring harness for 1967-1972 Chevrolet and GMC pickup trucks. Factory style bulkhead connectors and additional GM connectors makes this harness a custom fit. Nothing could make your vintage Chevrolet truck easier to re-wire.

18-CIRCUIT WIRING HARNESS INCLUDES:

Accessory plug.

Backup lights/cruise control.

Air conditioning and heat.

Ignition and starting.

Horn

Emergency flashers.

Dash instruments.

Headlights, taillights, brake lights, turn signals

Radio

Constant and ignition hot

Wipers

Dome light.

Charging

EXTRA CIRCUITS INCLUDED FOR:

Electric choke for carburetors.

Electric engine cooling fan.

Electric fuel pump.

Power antenna.

Power windows.

Power door locks

Third brake light.

Keep in mind that this wiring harness includes more circuits than the stock vehicle. This is so that you may add the extra items listed easily should you choose to do so. If you do not need the extra items, just delete them from the harness when installing.

Re: 67-72 wiring harness???

Does anyone have experience with the other kits? EZWire, American Auto Wire, M&H, Ron Francis?

Just read that thread. Doesn't sound like EZ wire is easy to install.

Re: 67-72 wiring harness???



Thats a pretty good price and you get $100. When you get the box, you will notice you get quite a bit, i think it weighed 20 pounds.

Cant go wrong with painless, IMHO.

That would really depend on ones skill level, I didn't think it was that bad. Reading the thread may make it seem that way but allot of that back and forth was really just getting on the same page (thats the toughest thing to overcome in ThreadShooting IMO). The schematic was simple but so is the system being installed. I don,t like how they distribute power from the alt to the starter, battery and cab but Painless does it the same way.

Right, I plan on purchasing before then. I'm leaning towards the painless kit but still not 100% sure.

Re: 67-72 wiring harness???

M&H sells replacement harnesses that are like the stock ones, but you have choices like getting a harness that's set up for HEI, and/or an internally regulated alternator. They are more expensive than Painless for example, but have all connectors already installed.

wiringharness.com I think.

If you go the Painless route, you should look into what tools such as crimpers are needed. There are many different types of crimpers. Its not a good idea to use a pair of pliers or the wrong crimper.

Good luck!

Re: 67-72 wiring harness???

I installed a painless kit on my 72 GMC and a EZ wiring harness on my 68. IMO the EZ harness is just as good as the painless (if not better) and it costs less.
