Engine/doghouse wiring harness

Post by Eric Howard on Wed May 31, 2017 5:28 pm

Hey everyone my wiring harness from the doghouse burnt up. Can't seem to find an aftermarket one. I'm very new at this and don't know anything about electrical. Didn't know if there was a cheap fix for this. Any suggestions would help alt. Thanks everyone

Welcome to the site
No new or aftermarket replacements available. you need a used one.

Look in G parts for sale and ask the people parting out vans or if they are near a junk yard they might go get you one.

You need to identify your van, year,model, engine and trans.

do you need the charging system harnes which is seperate

I can tell you how to fix it,,,,,,the wiring loom comes from the dash into the doghouse to this connector right below the carburetor,,,,,,do you have that connector there,,,,,,,and does anything work,,,,,,just a few wires there,,,,,,horn, alternator, oil sender, starter, coil and power to dash,,,,,,,,does your van run,,,,,do you have pictures,,,,,why is it burnt up?

Sorry about the quality of the photos. Let me know if these work. I have no idea why they burned up. I'm sure the mice got in there. We live surrounded by corn fields and they run all over

When did this happen,,,,,did it ever run,,,,,,,did you put a good battery in it and see what works,,,,,,the horn relay in this picture is the brains of the wiring circuit,,,,,,those 2 screws on it send out the power through the red wires,,,,,DO YOU HAVE IT,,,,,ARE THE WIRES ON IT BURNT UP,,,,look on the starter solenoid where the positive battery cable hooks up to it,,,,,,,do you see a wire from there going up to one of those screws on the horn relay? Do you understand what I am talking about so far? Are you, or someone going to be able to replace a couple of wires?

Ya a little I understand. It was running good then it just wouldn't turn over. It kept draining the battery so I got a brand new one and it drained it too. At one time I charged it and the temp gauge wouldn't shut off. I went to a junk yard in Nebraska and found two wiring harness and a nice gauge cluster. I'm gonna go through it Sunday and my friend is coming to help me. I'm actually learning quite a bit from all your guys and different forums. I like that everyone is a community and happy to help. I got out of the army awhile ago and it's nice to see the camaraderie here

in my book,,,,,,,,trying to put another 50 year old harness back in instead of a newer, safer one that is set up for a higher output, kinda a 1 wire alternator is not a good plan,,,,,,,and you surely want to find out why it burned up so the next one dont do the same thing,,,,,,,,,,

The main feed on these old girls is terribly undersized and quite often it will get hot and take out other wiring with it. It often shows up at the harness plug inside the doghouse. Like Don says up grading is best. To help yourself using another intact original harness. Do not put any accessories through it. Set your self up with an additional fuse block and feed that separately. The use of relays and such work out pretty well for this.
