Small block starter on left, big block on right
Ford Racing 9mm wires
Ok, this was a WTF? moment. This is the wire for the 02 sensor. Instead of running down the bellhousing, Ford wanted the wire to run down the wheel well, inside the same loom that the starter's power cable runs through. So, in order to get there, this is the path it had to take:
Heres the full length of it. Stupid long!
Ford actually added an extension to the wire to make it longer, but both ends of it are female, meaning if you remove it, you cant plug in the O2 sensor. SO the obvious thing to do, is splice a female plug onto the end of the first harness, and delete the extension.
That was a simple one. I chose to keep the main cable the same length it was before.
Heres why: the first cable all by itself was the perfect length. Dunno what Ford was thinking when they laid it out the other way.
I also hooked up the radiator, trans cooler & power steering cooler. Got a shorter belt for the alt since the smog pump is gone, and put the a/c delete pulley on so i could put the orig belt back on there. I have to get a different York, i have a left hand suction and need a right hand suction so i can lay the York over in the horizontal position so it will clear the hood. I rerouted the ARB & axle vent lines so theyre not so close to the header, and reinstalled a ton more wiring. Also hooked up the trans vent since i forgot to do that.
