Swap Engine Wiring Problems.
Hello everyone, my name is mike, i have posted about this very same project before with similar questions,since then my knowledge has expanded a little,i own a 1996 ford bronco,i had bought it as a shell,it came with a 351w block in it that was ceased. I was going to take parts from this and put it on my other bronco at the time, a 1993 Eddie Bauer with a 302 5.0 in it. The shell i bought was in much better condition rust and interior wise then the 93.
So i decided economically of course, to put the 302 into the 1996 shell i had purchased,i did exactly that. With the help of many backyard bronco mechanics and my noob self i achieved my goal. I have both wiring harnesses from the 302 and 351.
Right now i have the 351 obd2 harness on the 302 engine,which does run,only it wont shift automatically and when i shift it manually from low gears 1 and 2and then to drive,which drives fine in all gears, eventually my voltage meter gage goes to nothing and the engine dies.
Now i understand that i need to put a 302 OBD2 1996 Wiring harness on this truck to make it work properly,right?
That has been impossible to find^
Also why is my voltage meter draining,i need to drive this truck and i wouldnt mind manually shifting it from low to drive if i have to for a while, is there anyway i could leave the 1996 351 obd2 harness on and fix the voltage meter from draining so i can drive this truck?
Can i somehow mash the two harnesses together, the 302 ob1 which has all the plugs that fit the motor with the 351 obd2 which has the right brain for the tranny and truck etc and come out with a sucessfull product.
Is there any aftermarket harness that i can purchase to make this truck run properly that s not 700 bucks?
Can i take the harness and brain from a 1996 302 f 150.250 etc?
If you have a solution please contact me,if you have a 1996 302 obd2 wiring harness you would like to sell,please also contact me,i live on long island but am willing to travel,or pay for shipping which ever is cheaper.
Please respond with any questions you may have or solutions.
Im sorry if any of my technical lingo is not correct or if anything stated above is in fact un factual,please correct me.
Thank you all, Mike.
