Started sorting out the mess of wiring in the car.
Well the wiring in the car is an absolute mess. I only have brake lights and the gauges hooked up right now. the rest of the wiring is either cut up lost or stuffed into an out of the way place in the car. All of it is a complete mess and I will probably be better off replacing every bit of wire in the car with new stuff. One thing is that the car used to be all fiberglass so there are ground wires ran to everything, now the car has plenty of metal parts in it to ground things to and this will make it a whole lot easier to just rip the old stuff out and redo it. If I left the old wiring in place I would have lots of ground wires running all over the place that aren’t used anymore.
I also changed out the gas pedal and used the old one out of the caddy. The one I got for it was to hard to control. The first 1/2 inch of travel would just barely open the secondaries then it took the rest of the 3 or so inches of travel to open the throttle the rest of the way. I could have redone the pedal to make it more logical feeling on my foot but it was easier to just weld the studs that the old caddy pedal mounted on into the car and just stick it on. I also had to give up on the cable that was controlling the throttle, it broke way to easy so instead I ordered a hydraulic throttle setup so that should end my control problems and give me nice easy to manage throttle control.
So far the circuits I have came up with on my new wiring will be based on this setup:
+12V Always on
+12V when in ON only
+12V ON + ACC
Brake Lights, Trans cooler fan
Engine Cooling Fan
Signal Lights/Radio memory
I can’t think of any other circuits to add but I will probably use a separate fuse block for each of these 3 types of circuits so when I add more stuff to the car I can find a spot to add it on easy.
