Default Re: How-To: OHC Install

Cant get a good picture of it due to skid plate being in the way.

In this picture notice the white square on the right side. I drilled a hole there from the back side and stuck the pin from the OHC senor through there. So it hangs down behind the valance. I have a Street Scene bumper grille so it hides the pin sticking up

They are located on the front left behind the bumper kinda under the headlight. Just look at a pic of one then you will find it easily. I have an extra if you need it. I could probably send you if you cant find one.

Where do I run the Temp sensor wires through? I can't seem to find a hole unless I run on the outside of the door on the inside of the fender. Does anyone have pictures of the temp sensor wire run? Thanks

Liam

Diver side there is a rubber grommet that wires from the factory go through.

Take a coat hanger and use it to help fish the wire through there.

Default Re: How-To: OHC Install

Thanks STL and Beef08, the only thing holding me up now is with that Red/Blue wire that gets connected to the radio harness. coming from the OHC harness, technically my harness has a Red/Black Wire, but no Red/Blue. I would attach a picture of the OHC wire harness, but I dont have it posted on an external lnk. Is that particular wire going to the ignition switch for the radio power, and if so should I go to red/black behind radio or blue/red? just trying to figure this out so I dont botch it and create unneccessary problems. Thank you,

Liam
