WTB - Wiring Harness - Engine Bay

Post by DAReese » Sat Oct 07, 2017 3:47 pm

I have an 89, auto. I'm looking for a good engine bay harness. Current one has been chopped up quite a bit and already had a few wires melt down to the fuse box.

I'd love to get this thing on the road, but the Merkur gods seem to be conspiring against me.

Already asked Jeff & Mike.

On turboford.com, there's a vendor who sells harnesses for our cars. Pricier, but new...

Don't know-- but if not, perhaps they know of someone who does.

Waiting to hear from Russ. Nothing local in the yards.

My point was that whatever you got from the yards would be as old and likely as skeevy as what you have now. Hoping to steer you towards some new wiring/help with it.

Of course, we're all in the same boat, to one degree or another...

Not the one I need. I need the engine bay harness. Already have a good main harness. But thanks. (I bought it from the eBay seller listed, but not for that amount).

I can't remember the guys name, but he was in PA.
Had a bunch of Scorpio's for sale this past summer, I actually bought some other harness parts from him.
Sal? Sal Rivkin? I know he is on the FB forum, not sure if he is on here.
