    Making your own new harness is very easy also... But enjoy.

    Making your own harness is not that difficult, but the costs add up quickly for the connectors, and it is a fair amount of work. It may be cheaper in the long run to get a new premade harness.

    Out of all the trucks I've worked on that "needed" a new harness only one actually did, usually you can remove enough wrap to expose fresh wire and put on new connectors.

    All you guys asking about making a harness:

    Yes, you can make one. All you'll have to do is buy dozens of the correct packards, hundreds of feet of high quality, correct gauge wire and a bunch of the blank circuit # tags, then stamp them each with the correct circuit #.

    Them you'll have to lay the harness out and measure each circuit, put it all together, wrap it, crimp all the connectors (do you have the correct crimp tool?) and hopefully you didn't make a mistake.

    A correct A2 harness is pictured below laid out on my driveway. Pulled it today (painting a truck so it had to come out). I should have put something next to it for scale. It's long.

    Is all that effort worth $250? Is to me.

    I'm bumping this instead of opening a new thread.

    I can't find the whole 11677081 without sacrificing a body part to buy it...

    But from all indications the combination of 2590-00-076-6001 plus 2920-01-011-9068 added to arsenal number 11630528 should be the old LD465 harness and the two updates for the turn signals and the 60amp alternator.

    Please double check me on this, or any advice/warnings on putting these three together.

    Thanks in advance,

    Heath

    Is the harness from eastern surplus that far off? My harness shorted out at the main lighting connector and several wire are burnt in half less than an inch from the main connector.

    How bad is it? The connectors can be disassembled and you can fix the connector and push out the pins. Just depends on how bad it is and your abilities.

    I'm in electronics, so it's in my abilities, just haven't messed with this particular type of connector. Here are the pictures I just took, do you think it is salvageable?

    Thanks for the help guys, I was able to repair the main harness on my 70 deuce. One question, has anyone ever successfully repairs the main lighting switch?
