was just wondering is it possible to use a ef/el full front to back harness in a ea-ed and still have the orignal ea-ed dashboard and stuff.

planning in the next year or so to get a ed and do up and maybe convert to a v8 and the ef/el harnesses are easier to get hold of especially the fairmont type, theres plenty base model harnesses but not many fairmont types especially the v8.

cant see any reason why the ef/el harness couldnt go in as the cars are close enough, only thing is would have to solder different plugs on the tail lights and stereo and other dash plugs to be able to have the eb-ed look but with the newer harness, but was asking anyway as alot of yous have installed different harnesses and one has used a ef harness in a eb before.

think the power and economy switch is reversed if using a el ecu so would have to add a relay to switch it back to original position.

have parted out the ef not long ago as the engine blew up and wanted a ed and bought a el ghia dashboard harness and then just before the engine blew up bought a full el ghia engine bay harness without the manifold harness and also the inside firewall harness but its for the 6 not v8.

put fairlane/ltd door harness in the ef when parting it out took them out and took out the dash switches maybe to make adaptors to convert ef/el to ea-ed and had a thought that the door harnesses and the el ghia harnesses could be put to use in the ed if its possible to do it and still allow the ed look but newer wiring.

and also most of the ef parts (that came out the ef when parted out) which are easier to get hold of cold be made to work in the ed.

another question when converting a el to a v8 that was a 6 using el harnesses to do it, do you have to swap the drivers side engine bay harness or only the passenger ecu side and the inside firewall part.

also could ef/el cruise control module work on ed steering wheel, someone on here said that on and off buttons still work and just need to change resistors and will be using the ed wheel as want the original ed look but newer wiring.

probably have got yous lost so hope yous can read this
