Routing for sending unit right side
« on: July 07, 2019, 06:37:20 AM »
Anyone have a pic or drawing of the routing for the right side sending unit wire. Doesn’t look smart to route it on the inside of the frame next to the exhaust system. Thanks.

Timely question....
Had mine ran neatly up the inside of the frame....till I ran the exhaust pipe.
Then I pulled it back out. Seems like a good way to toast the wire.
But don't see another good route unless it goes through the battery box area??

Curious to see the replies.

Thanks,
Keith

The wiring on mine ran on the outside of the frame and just traveled over hill, over dale across the tops of the various frame brackets on its way to the back. I assume it was original. The inside of the frame doesn't look like a good place to run it, with the exhaust right there.

Wow....Mine had those wire holders but I thought they were for something else.
Never would have thought they would have run the wire "over hill, over dale".

Thanks!!!

You’re welcome! I guess there weren’t too many choices – running it on the inside of the frame would’ve cooked it, and running it under the frame brackets instead of over them would’ve made it susceptible to being snagged by brush, terrain, etc.
