Well we've cut open the whole harness.. now it looks like I have a plate of pasta.... The pile of deleted wires is getting bigger. When Kenny and I did the Nissan harness when it was all said and done the deleted wires filled the 55 gallon drum. looking at this harness I don't think I'll get anywhere near that amount... I been pretty lazy this week I've been surfing the web looking for ideas to steal and buying parts.. I was planning this Sunday to install my 91 transmission and start the process of grafting the motor into the car.. But before I do that I need to make the harness a bit more manageable.

This is my Nissan project.. Now this is a harness!!! complete with an antitheft system that I had to circumvent.. The antitheft system is still active on my rail and I am able to activate it making my car unusable in an instant.

took a couple hours today in finished up the wiring harness identified the last of the wires associated with the main PDU and the car subpanel I'm ready to disconnect them and that will complete the wiring harness until I grafted in to my Baja most of the wires will need to be cut soldered, sealed, and shrink wrapped to achieve the proper wire length. I took a few hours Friday and went digging around the junkyard I was able to locate a suitable wire harness Gromit that I am happy with.. I'll post up some photos of the final harness after I removed the PDU and subpanel I ran out of time this evening and I wanted to play with the kids. I have the harness down to
1) 12 V constant
2) 12 V switched
3) ground
4) starter engaged
5) fan on at 203°
6) AC step up/fan on
7) tachometer
Cool I'm sure there's some others I have them all labeled with little tow tags.

I found a better way than to overheat the car for testing.. I used a heat gun and removed the heat sensor from the block ... I then used the heat gun to overheat the sensor making the computer think that the motor was overheated this was a lot safer than disconnecting the fans..

I took some time to test the "starter energized" wire. What I found was that if I did not energize the wire to the computer telling it that the starter was engaged it took a lot longer for the motor to start. I know that all my Nissan motor it is critical to have this wire energized every time the starter is engaged when the computer senses the starter engaged it fires all the injectors at once. I've always wondered how other wire harness manufacturer's got away with not energizing this wire every time the starter was engaged it appears on some ECU's they can recover sensing the motor is turning over.. It just seemed like my motor labor more when I did not energize this wire.

Question:.... ????

How would you cut a perfect 3 inches out of an odd shaped oil pan without spending $1 million and having somebody else do it????

I was very pleased with the result it came out within a couple thousands of exactly 3 inches. All I did was use the hose clamp to hold the trigger down and spin the oil pan on my metal workbench and bingo... I just save myself $400..

Shortening the oil pickup was easy I'm not sure it's worthy of posting..

I hope you are enjoying my build.

Dalton

After finishing the oil pan this evening, I had an hour so to kill.. I decided to finish the harness. I successfully removed the main PDU and the fuse block from the harness. I also rerouted all the wires to come off one side of the motor the next time I plan on starting the motor it will be mounted in my Baja I need to take a couple more hours to graft in a few additional wires that I will used to grafted in the Baja's electrical system. the harness doesn't look so scary now.... And actually the only wrong wire that I had cut was the "green wire"!!>>?? I found a neat little wire that came off the computer that actually de-energizes the compressor clutch until after the motor starts I think that I'll incorporate this feature when I grafted the motor in I kind of like the idea that I won't have to think about turning off the AC compressor until after the motor starts. I was also impressed that a stock 091 starter has no trouble in starting this high compression motor as I watched on the monitor it appears that the computer puts the motor at zero advance untel around 700 rpm's and then advances the timing 15°.. My hopes are high that I will have the best of both worlds I'll have the best fuel economy that that technology can provide in the best performance.. After the motor is mounted in the vehicle I will start some more detailed scans underload most manufacturers build in a "passing fuel ratio" into their programs if I can figure out how to trick the computer into thinking I need maximum power to pass another vehicle and lock it in I might be able to increase my horsepower and performance by another 15% on demand. I don't want to run it in this mode all the time because it would destroy my fuel economy for just putting around town.. This is what you pay the re-programmer to do when he flashes your computer he locks it in to the "passing fuel ratio" and then charge you $300.. But that's not what I want, I want to be able to flip a switch and trick the computer into this mode and then when I'm putting around town I put I put it back into fuel economy mode..
