Wired in the OHC, double checking my connections as I went.
After close to 3 hours working, the stupid thing does NOT work.
Gonna meter it tomorrow, see if connectors are providing power.
If not, then I may try to rewire a different way. If they do, then something else is shot.
Otherwise, I'm out the cost of a useless OHC, the cost of replacing damaged headliner, misc stuff
and all the time I spent working on some thing that doesn't work.
Unless there's someone in/near Longmont that would be willing to help, at a much later time.

Remounting the train horns from under the bed to behind the grill and upgrading lines for more air flow. :-)

gonna rip it all out and throw the thing in the trash!! Gonna cut my losses at about $75 in the thing. Extra wire, parts etc...
Not to mention the cost of a new headliner, since mine is now irreparably damaged
from cutting in the mounting bracket.
If I can't get mine to even work, I'm sure as hell not gonna work on another one, and
risk possible permanent damage to someone else's truck!!
If wiring instructions could be found, that were a bit better than what I was
following, maybe I wouldn't have so many problems!
