Here is a pic of the harness....
Thanks for the reply and the reassurance. I'm glad to hear it. Scott was kind enough to send me some pics of when he swapped the harness in his 80E (on the stand) and it didn't look bad. The builder commented that it was a bit fiddley getting it around the park rod, but that was it. The tool is on the FedEx vehicle for delivery so I should be all set to tear into it tomorrow morning.I changed the harness in my 80e. Easy peasy.
Thanks for the compliment. I'm glad to have the truck back. I totally get it on the compromise. I do want it to be a hot rod but I think I might have gone just a little too far for it to be ideal for a daily driver.Loud exhaust amplifies the slippage annoyance from high stall converters. I don't like them when I'm trying to cruise or just out for a drive but they make up for it when you beat on it. I agree with you on the gear ratios of the 80e. I think the 60e is a superior piece from a driveability standpoint but it fails hard everywhere else. Hard decisions to make, fast usually comes with trade-offs like the converter. I really like your truck.
Its a good thing you went with Circle D. They will re stall your converter for free within one year of the purchase date....ask me how I knowI still think I would have done better to go with a lower stall speed, like 3000-3200 or 3200-3400 but I'm going to keep driving it for now. Everything that I complained about before is bothering me less.
I wasn't aware that they would re-stall it for free so that's good to know. At this moment, I don't think I am going to pull it back out to re-stall the converter. I've pretty well gotten accustomed to it and it doesn't seem nearly so extreme at this point.Its a good thing you went with Circle D.
