    fuel pump relay black wire to fuel pump live
    fuel pump earth to chassis
    ignition 12v wire to black/yellow wire under dash
    constant 12v wire to white wire under dash
    crank wire to black/silver dot wire
    ect wire to ect switch green/brown wire
    overdrive wire to green/yellow wire in blue plug
    reverse lights (blue wire?) to yellow wire in white plug
    tacho wire to black/white wire on remaining surf plug
    oil pressure switch wire to yellow wire on alternator
    yellow alternator wire to yellow/blue plug wire
    black/yellow alternator wire to red plug wire

    I had to partially strip the loom to get the burned earth wire out and gave the relay boxes their own earth and are fine

      ok think Ive sorted the wiring stuff as it now cranks over

      question on the fuel lines, which side of the engine is fuel feed and return as there what looks like a fuel regulator on each side

      does the ecu and ignitors casing need grounding? ie bolted to body

        Passenger side = fuel in.
        Driver's side = fuel return.
        There's a fuel pressure regulator on the driver's side, thats a pressure dampener on the passenger side.

        ECU doesn't need to be grounded, but the igniters definitely do.

          Ive ended up just cutting the oil filter bracket in half with a plan of just tapping a thread into the channels and fitting a fitting

          however I dont have a tap that big or even a bolt for reference (or a ruler), only that this an-8 fitting is too big. would a an-6 fitting fit in? and then finding a male an-6 to female an-8 fitting too.... hah what a faff on

            Have you seen these??

            http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1uz-fe-oil...item19f6a63d17

            I'd just save a load of time and messing about and get one of those! Had they been as easily accessible as they are now when I did mine, its what I would have used!

                great find wish I found that weeks ago, wouldve saved me buying 2 different oil filter adapters and neither of them working but I guess I can use them for other projects

                major things left to do I think is radiator, radiator hoses, power steering hoses, make an exhaust and then its drivable

                  did a few bits today

                  4wd stick now selects 4lo after cutting a bit out the transmission tunnel
                  mounted the original surf rad and made a bottom rad hose
                  remounted the slam panel
                  wired up a horn

                  need to make some spacers for the front arb as it hits the prop

                  also spent a ridiculous amount of $ on silicone pipe, for maf and top rad pipe

                      had to move the handbrake further towards the firewall and the only way to do that is to mount it on the inside

                      its all because the back of the head would rest against it as it sticks out about 2 inch, now it sticks out about half an inch and theres half an inch gap

                              Just outside, having a fire. Sure I've just heard a V8 fire up. Was it you, Reece?
