How do you trace wires from engine bay to gauges?
I'm a newbie on the site. I have an '84 J-10. I received it in a trade. No engine, t179 4spd and rest of running gear in a basket case. I swapped in a Windsor 351. After I built mounts, It bolted right up to the tranny. I does however use a ford pressure plate and a Chevy clutch plate. Go figure? Anyway, I'm now working on wiring. I've got it the engine firing, but now I need some help on the gauge wiring.
Do I have to pull out the instrument cluster and check continuity or should I be able to apply a ground to the some of the engine sensor connectors?
I don't know for sure which ones are the sensor connectors for gauges or other modules. It looks like a spaghetti factory with all those wires.
Any help is appreciated.
