Default 70-81 fbody owners..help!

Ive been working on a project (79 T/A ws6 6.6 403) and the poor girl has been hacked for 30 years..The electrical system has been "done" if you know what i mean. Almost no wiring matches diagrams and i have connecters just hangin out thats are live with nothing to plug into. Its fucked. Can anyone just poke a camera under dash and snap some photos for me. getting very frustrated. Thinking of starting over

This may help as well. http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&*...w=1440&bih=763

I used to have a factory service manual for my 78 TA. I'll poke around and see if I can find it.

If it is completely jacked up, you may wish to consider completely replacing all of the wiring. May turn out to be quicker, especially given how simple that car is compared to cars of today.

Do they make replacement harnesses for that generation?

full under dash harness for a 79 t/a 403 olds.

this one is wired for the delay wipers, power window harness not in the pic. I'll get you pics of the plug ends marking them for what they go to.
