  10. Dash wiring harness questions?

    Factory Five Roadsters
    I have the Ron Frances complete wiring harness and the gauge set is supposed to "snap" in. The connections are completely wrong. I have the "vintage style" gauge set rather than the modern set. Does Ron Frances make 2 different types of harness for the different gauge set or am I going to...
  11. Wiring Diagrams

    Factory Five Roadsters
    So I have started wiring up my car with the donor harness and there is a bunch of extra wiring that I would like to remove sooner rather then later. However using the wiring diagrams found in my Haynes manual isn't exactly instilling much confidence in me as to what is ok to remove and what has...

  16. Attention 'Complete Kit' builders

    Ford Modular Engine Roadster Builds
    Thank you everyone for your thoughts and comments. The biggest shock to me is that FFR for all practical purposes has abandoned the original 'donor concept' in favor of suppling eveything new in their 'complete kit' package (whose appeal I can understand). Guess I've been busy keeping my head...
