Hmm, I kinda had my mind made up but if the EZ harness is just as good I'm thinking I should maybe try that route and save some bucks.

Re: 67-72 wiring harness???

So is it worth the extra money to have all the connectors pre-installed?

Re: 67-72 wiring harness???

The EZ wire harness is universal correct? Where as the painless harness I can get specific to 67-72 gm trucks?

Re: 67-72 wiring harness???

I plan on doing a Gen III engine swap into my truck in the near future(already have engine/tranny/wire harness/ecu). Would this kit be a good choice for me?

Yea, but the specific one costs way more than the "normal" painless kit. I used EZ over 10 years ago. Same wire, Same labels, 1/3 the cost. When I compare products and they are apples to apples, no way I'm paying painless for their name.

I only see the universal kits on their website. Do you have a link or do I just need to call them? Are they the same price as their universal harnesses?

Re: 67-72 wiring harness???

$180 for a 21-circuit EZ to my door on ebay. Just do a search for "21 wiring"... the same guy has them priced from 180 shipped to $200 shipped for the same thing, so look for the cheaper ones.

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.
I am curious now what do you mean about about the routing of the power exactly

I like the klein crimpers and tomas and betts crimp connectors

Happy Hunting

Re: 67-72 wiring harness???

I used an EZ harness on my '71. Mine was a bit more complex than a standard re-wire, as I have a decent amount of stereo stuff in mine too. All in all, I didn't have much trouble with the EZ kit. I used EZ's wiring diagram, and compared it against a factory wiring diagram, when I did the wiring on my truck. It took some head scratching at times. But everything worked the first time I powered it up.

I'm not trying to be negative here, but I think a lot of people's problems come from not completely understanding electricity/wiring/wiring diagrams when they undertake this task. There is more involved than just positives and negatives, like you encounter when adding stereo equipment. Understanding hot to read diagrams is key to doing a complete re-wire too. But some basic skills in this area go a long way to making the whole process easier.
