Thank you, five-string. It has been a lot of work. There were times that I had become so frustrated that I had to walk away from it. Trying to get it running was possibly the most challenging thing that I had ever done. But once all of the planets aligned and the stars shone bright, I was able to get it started. It was a reward. All of my frustrations seemed to have vanished once I heard the motor purr.
I have some pictures of progress. I have gotten further than this, but these are what I have for now.
I pulled the left fender off to gain an easier access to the firewall for the placement of the ECM.
I used 1/4"x2-1/2" carriage bolts through the firewall to secure the PCM. It looks right at home there. I had also relocated the Charcoal vapor canister.
While I had the fender off, I sprayed any bare metal with a can of rusty metal primer. There was only a little oxidization, but I figured that it wouldn't hurt to do it anyway. I also painted the firewall. It was easier to access now before I reassembled everything.
I started the retaping process. I first separated what circuits and runs went where, pretaped them into place, then ran a full wrap around all of the wires.
Here was the hardest area to wrap up due to all of the components involved in the area, but it is all done now. A few of the bare wires will be wrapped within the split loom. These wires are for future use, just in case I added in a component, like a radiator cooling fan, a second set of fog lights, a hood light etc.
I have since wrapped all of the bundles of wire in split loom. I had recycled all of the good pieces (which were still in great shape) and placed them according to size and length of the bundled runs. It may not look factory, but it sure does look a heck of a lot better than it did when I started.
Now, to move on to the tranny leak. By the looks of it, it is coming from the front pump area, but I will have to pull the tranny back out in order to determine this. I have yet to reconnect the front frive shaft. I guess that it was a good idea to leave it off until everything has been worked out.
