Okay, so I've roughly placed everything in the right spot and this afternoon I'm going to install the dizzy and starter... however tommorow I'm modifying the EB engine harness so I can use the EF plugs.

But does this...

Equal this?

And uh...

yes that looks right..
the large plug looks like the tps (throttle position switch) plug and the smaller plug is the isc(idle speed controler) both go to the throttle body.

and the other ones in the bottom pic..
the pink one runs from the tfi module on the dizzy to the coil.
i just looked at mine and i cant find the other wire..
but im pretty sure (but not 100%) the other wire is to bolt to the engine block..?

Yep thats where it bolts on the EB.

When I made up my EB loom to go on the BBM I didn't extend and in the end bolted it to the bolt on the BBM end of the bracket from the block to BBM.

I modified the harness, didn't touch those two wires but my god how hard is it to get a harness in while the manifold is on the engine in the car :?

Just need to install the dizzy and it should be right to start, heres hoping for good news next weekend

Good luck with starting here. Looking forward to good news.

I just booked in at Autoleaders to get the dizzy and starter installed... I've never done either and my brother keeps saying he'll help but then doesn't get around to it -_-;'

Anywho, was sick this weekend and didn't get the thermo switch or the new headlights installed so yeah... slow progress.

Mate, installing the starter is piss easy, its 2 bolts and a few wires, i did one in about 10 mins (remove old one, install new one)

Yeah but I don't have any ramps or even some blocks I could do it myself I suppose but as I'm getting the dizzy put in I figured I'd save the hassle and just pay someone else to do it.

Done

Finished threading my engine harness.

Sourced all the stuff to wire up the davies craig thermokit, didn't get around to actually doing it though -_-.

Fitted my new reproduction headlights, they dont quite fit as well but they're nice and new and shiney.

Sourced an AU intake pipe and a peice of aluminium pipe to do a BenJ-esque intake mod.

Sourced and fitted a washer bottle plus pvc piping (hey its important okay!).

Fitted new parkers (ooo white led)

Fitted a battery and listened to the factory radio for a minute or two... was a bit of a triumphant moment.

Got autoleaders to install the dizzy and coil.

I didn't realise the auto cooler was integrated into the radiator so there was no need to freak, I'll get an external cooler one day but today is not that day.

The engine mounts were bolted in properly at autoleaders.

Got autoleaders to install the starter motor.

New fuel lines are hooked up!

Installed new H4/H3 bulbs in the headlights... battery is going even more flat from the glovebox light being on due to the glovebox being removed so I didn't have any cranking power. -_-

New rotor cap, new dizzy cap, new leads.

Coil plugged in, didn't think the loom would be long enough, manifold air temp sensor wiring extended to compensate.

New windscreen.

Fuel pump relay installed, gone are the indicator quibbles.

Whats left to do?
Not much anymore, starting to get frustrated that its so close yet so far.

Power steering pump swapped for a working unit with pulley, however the old brass fitting is still jammed onto the old powersteering pump connector.

Flat battery, its probably stuffed... buying a new one.

Gotta wire up my davies craig thermal switch.

Gotta sort the vacuum stuff for the BBM, not sure where it connects to behind the dash.

The Smartlock bypass module is here, I can't not install it and run the EL ecu... its got to be done, but the ecu isn't even here.


Other stuff thats slightly less important but will need to be done for the roadworthy.

Sagging headlining.

Front bumper has a split in the lower airdam and a scratch on the right hand side, will probably get a new bar.

Stuff that doesn't have to be done right away
The guy who I bought the car off of hack sawed out the bloody aircon... I'm going to have to eventually rip out the dash and put in a whole new heater/aircon unit.

The brighter brake light tech document sings to me as a nice simple project to do when I'm bored.

EL Door trims and EB/ED fairmont seats, hell I'd be happy with just the new door trims if only I could find someone willing to part with the GLi door trims (can live without power windows) without having the wreckers wanting to charge me $60 ea

Front/Rear bumpers, Mirrors and EL Door handles painted... whole car professionally buffed.

New stereo.

Hi, good to see you are making some progress.

Keep up the good work, you will get there in the end.

I think I've just chased down the problem with the headlights not working, the indicators turning on randomly and the illumination of the indicators when the headlight switch is on to a possibly faulty fuel pump relay (the brown one).

I don't like the bulbs that came with the headlights, going to have to buy some whiter heated ones, ho hum

So the car went to autoleaders today.

They've installed the dizzy and starter motor (hooray!)
Got them to fix the half a*** engine mounts.
They've got a guy coming in tommorow to make some fuel lines up.

I was trying to think of other things the guy I bought it from might've buggered up and my brother suggested that he might not have fitted the torque converter correctly... so I got autoleaders to have a check and it turns out there were no bolts holding it in at all.

So yeah tommorow I can check off a few things from my list I guess :)

EDIT: by the way, as some of you might have read in my thread in the ecu and fuel system subforum... how great is it that ford insisted on a proprietary relay for the fuel pump -_- I'll go to the wreckers on the weekend and see if I can pilfer one from a AU/BA/BF, I know the EL's have the same brown and green bottomed proprietary connected relays but I hope that I can get one from a BF just so I can really mongrel up my falcon :wink:

EB falcon, EF motor, EL distributor, AU intake pipe, BF fuel pump relay :lol:

Car's home safe and sound, found out the EB engine harness wont quite reach the coil when mounted in the EF manifold... going to try and jiggle it along to try and get it to fit otherwise I'm going to have to learn to be a contortionist solderer.

Dizzy and starter installed.
Fuel lines all sorted.
Engine mounts sorted.
Torque converter sorted for free (didn't charge me parts woo).

They had to remove the manifold to get access to install the dizzy and the fuel lines, apparently the gasket that came off crumbled. They threw in new injector seals for free.

Anywho, to get it running I need the following;

Aforementioned coil wiring fitment.
A fuel pump relay.
New power steering pump.
Thermofan install.

THATS IT! :D
