Firewall wiring harness - under or over?
« on: August 29, 2011, 09:36:06 AM »
1969 Camaro Pace car - what's the correct original wire harness routing - under or over the wiper motor?  Also, are all the looms (cowl flapper, coil, starter etc) bundled and taped together at that point or are they separate?

The harness goes above the wiper motor, and through the plastic wire trough on the way to the passenger side; the ZL2 wiring is as shown in the Assembly Manual (section ZL2, sheet A5).

Thanks John, that helps.  I assume it goes under the booster and not over correct? Any chance someone has a picture of this to reference too?

Perfect, Looks like under the booster for the main harness, I'm ready to route them.

Any difference between the original ZL/2 wiring harness and the new made or repros?
Thanks

I saw a pair of the fuse box connectors for the ZL/2 hood harness (the ones from the box through the firewall) that had and extra set of wires from each plug that goes into the fuse box and these wires had a plug-in clip at the ends to attach more wires?
Comments.........
Thanks

That's correct - those are piggyback connectors so you can connect the rear defogger with ZL2; photo below shows my original '69 with ZL2 and C50.
