Hello all,

Thank you Hatzie for posting the wiring diagrams that helped me find this place.
We have an '81 Chevy K20 fleetside long box with a 350 and a 3 spd manual.
Bought it about two years ago in Ballard, WA and brought it out to the sticks in Southeast WA.
It has very little rust for spending time in salty air, and the truck came with a EZ Wiring harness the previous owner bought.

I put BFG K02's and some wider rims on her, am going to buff the body this summer, and am right in between gutting the old wiring and installing new.
It has a 1200# davit mounted in the bed, drilled & tapped into some HSS & pipe welded underneath. I'm hoping to put it to use pulling an outboard off this month.

I'd like to eventually put an EFI kit on it and new rear shocks and airbags.
I'll post more pictures of the wiring as I go. Would appreciate any tips and tricks on this or tuning the Holley anyone might have!

-Ben
