wireing harness

Post by dougtappan on Wed Sep 27, 2017 5:23 pm

Hey All, looking for a wireing harness for my 67 short van. I know painless is the first one to come to mind but are there other option s that may be just as good.

If you go with Painless dont tell them you have a Van, find something that would be similar in wiring and tell them that..

I called and explained it to them and they said they didn't have anything. Kind of short about it, and just done with me after telling me so. I'm sure a pickup from the same year would work, real close anyway, maybe some wire extensions. But after that from their sales people I was done with them.

I did my own by just buying fuse blocks and tracking down the wires that matched color codes and gauge. I wish I had pushed Painless, or went to someone else, probably be easier to work with now.

Just my 2 cents..

I used one from American Autowire. Called their Highway15. Very organized, and set up to tackle one system at a time. Mostly GM color codes. Had to neatly splice for some of the connectors. Generally pretty easy, and comes with a new fuse panel. Good Luck. Always great to see these vans back on the road.

I bought the e-z wiring 21 circuit kit. Paid $185 at the Pomona Swap, saved $20 on shipping and handling. I haven't installed it yet but I laid out the wires and it appears to have the right length for a 90" wheelbase.

I am looking for the same thing. Mine is up and running but just did the alternator 10si conversion today and boy are the wires brittle and hacked up. In fact the van would not start at first after the install. Then after just fidgeting around with wires, it fired right up pale I would like to get something with all the terminals because mine are all shot as well (ie, light plugs)

Dmann2, I am in Meridian as well, we should meet up and talk vans. Plus I would love to see what you did with your wiring!

Is there like a little video someplace where kind of shows you how to put a wire harness in the process step by step, gosh I can't spend $2,000 on somebody to do it for me that's what everybody wants. Can message me. Thank you for your time

Not to be rude, but if you cannot figure out how to take a universal wire harness and integrate all of the circuits, and make it work for your van, you may want to pay someone $2000 to get it done.

A simple understanding of DC circuitry and the mentality of pulling a wire and replacing it with another is all you really need to get it done. With these simple tactics, many upgrades can additionally be made.

The wiring harnesses on the vehicle are pretty simple. In fact about as simple as you can get these days. So again, if you are not comfortable, I would hire it out or find someone you can trade services with if you cannot afford to have it done.

If you were closer, I would let you sit in as I replace mine.
