Picture of the wiring from the generator to where it joins the major harness. Also, a connector unused at the firewall pass-through.

Do your alternator connections go down, and then over to the left to the engine harness? Or Somewhere else?

And what color are the two sires on the plug, please?

Thank you!

If I can find the wires in the harness, I can splice into them.

Well, now I am buying front lights and sockets. I am in the nickel and dime stage. Sigh.

All lights are in and working, and the assemblies mounted correctly. Now to get the new radiator next week.

Current status -- all assembled except front bumper. I don't have the hardware for that. Put 110 miles on the new engine and transmission.

However, a rear oil leak has caused me to drop the transmission. Found my South Bend kevlar pilot bushing all mucked up. Now searching for a new pilot bearing.

If one were to get aftermarket plates for the rear of the block, for the rear main seal, and an aftermarket oil pan, what would you recommend?

How about an alternator? Does anyone have a favorite to recommend, or any to warn against?

second gen bet me the alternator he built me back in 89 would out live me.
31 years and 460,000 miles later is is still working perfectly.
same with all the starters i have had done over the years. if they rebuild it, i never have to touch it again.
best thing too is they are cheaper than parts stores.

HOLA!

That's Mexican for hello . . .. Hey, I live 14 miles north of the border . . . one adapts.

Current status - I've wired the 2008 mirrors for the 1999. In spite of all the adapters you can buy, none of them are "quite right".

The switch looks like this:
201574


The new mirror plug looks like . . . . And the black and the gray wires are the turn signal and the running light respectively.
201575


The adapters you can buy are bullshit. I ended up cutting the ends off and soldering to the original switch pigtail.
201577


Unfortunately, the only place I can find this is CARiD, and it is $41 out the door. :mad:

The Ford Switch wiring diagram is
201578

Hi, all!

I keep reading about "rollover noise from the ZF-6 manual transmission".

What would that be?

Rollover noise as I have found described... our 7.3 diesels do not have a particularly smooth idle. As each cylinder fires there is a burst of crankshaft acceleration. The change in crankshaft speeds causes the gears to rattle when you are idling in neutral or at low rpms in gear. It is even more noticeable in a transmission with straight cut gears. Not something you really need to worry about.

Well, ****!


Well, I have 500 miles on the truck. I changed the oil, but continuing dinosaur oil to 5000 Miles.

I also changed the transmission fluid to the synthetic. Now I hear a loud knock! WTH? HELP!
