has anyone made there own engine wire harness????

i am going to start building my tube frame zuk from scratch next week and was wondering if anyone knows alot about the carbed zuk wire harness? i have made my own for cars before but never a zuk. correct me if i'm wrong but all i really have to do is put power to the coil, hook up a battery, hook up the alt., and hook the starter up to a key. this is just the bare necesities, i will hook up external guages and make a seperate harness for the lights. will the stock carb work without the little black box? what does the box do? thanks in advance!!!

It will run, but it will not run properly. Overall it will be rich, as the box basically controls a variaty of
aie bleeds that keep the thing running correctly and at the required emisions levels. So it is designed
to runn in a rich condition that can then be leaned out, It would be OK to get home with but not
for a long duration.

Get rid of the stock Hitachi and go with a Pony or Weber .

if i go with a pony does that acheive what i want? i don't want to have a bunch of misc. wiring with a little black box. i am on a budget so a pony carb wouldn't be a bad idea.

80% of the wires under the hood go to the carb & related sensors. Really the only other wires out there are the headlights, horn, starter, & alt. All the other crap can be dumped if running a weber or pony. Best to go ahead & scrap the idiot lights & pick up some GOOD guages w/ metric adapters & install those while you're at it. Brad.


I done the same thing to my samurai (before the efi swap) & you wouldn't believe how much crap you can weed out.
