I like the harness, well labeled and fairly straight forward. It is considered and update kit not a true complete wiring harness. There are lots of wires that are not needed, unless you have your ride tricked out with electric windows & door locks. It, also, does not have wiring for running the stock alternator w/external regulator, or the windshield wiper switch. It is set up to run every conceivable interior courtesy light but not to run a three switch blower motor for the heater. Also, the steering column needs to be re-configured to a GM style plug to hook up the turn signal & horn. I should have expected that since AAW has more GM products than Ford. There are lots of stuff they don't tell you and you figure out once it's too late.
I had a dead short somewhere in my original wiring. I really wanted to stay original but this kit had relayed headlights, fan relays and all the power options you could ever want built right in. So I went for it. The price was better than a painless kit and install was a easy. Took about 5 days to install for me but I wrapped all my wiring. Be sure to get the crimpers, yes they are expensive, but if you have a classic car spending money is part of it and you'll end up with a perfect install. I installed silverstar headlights and LED lights front and rear. By far the best thing I have done so far. Be warned though you will have to convert to a 1 wire alternator.
What a great wiring kit! Simple concept and pretty straight forward on the install, but time consuming if you have one person and only weekends to tackle it. Took me one month to tear out the old and install the new....9-10 hours per weekend. Tech support was great. The only complaint I have is the instructions label their connectors with letters, i.e. "Connector B", but they do not have a reference sheet for these connectors. Their crimping tools are a must to do the job right. Everything worked on the first try!! Thanks AAW!
This is one awesome and easy wiring harness to install. Worked perfectly! Just need to invest in the proper crimping tool from AAW to do the job right the first time. Tech support was there and available to answer any questions I had. Thanks American Autowire for a great product!
