Wiring Harness?

I bought the Painless wiring harness for my '86. Nice set, but I didn't expect that the engine wiring would not included. I looked thought the various catalogs, but didn't see any such product even exist. Does any company product the harness set for the engine?

Particularly the harness that connects to the onboard computer?

Wow. I would have sworn I had seen the engine wiring harness 100 times. I just googled it for the last 20 minutes and the only place that mentioned it was lectric.com and they say it is unavailable. Wish I could help.

S/f,

They don't even have it. How is this possible that nobody offered this product? Are the engine electrical configuration all that different from each other?

I installed the Painless "Factory" wiring harness in my '84 three years ago and was quite annoyed that they didn't include the engine harness. For folks who don't have to, or choose not to, worry about the smog equipment, the "factory" kit does in fact work. When I called Painless, their response was "most people disconnect all that crap." For me, I was living in Cali at the time and disconnecting the smog circuitry was not an option. It took me several days of chasing the various circuits in my engine bay and figure out how to integrate it with the Painless kit. In the end, it was anything but painless...

I think they're similar. Some folks seem to prefer one over the other. I went with Painless because I needed to replace my fuse box (primary reason for the re-wire) and wanted to stick with the OEM bulkhead design. From what I remember of my research prior to purchasing, neither really addresses the ECM.
