Ford FSD

Hi Folks,

I am in the process of installing a Ford FSD 2500 four pot diesel into Talisman of Fambridge.

Planning on using an "AquaDrive" and nice soft feet. However, cutting to the chase:
What I need is a wiring diagram for this engine. Please does any one have one?
I am not an electrician but there are not many good ones around here and if I build it and it breaks, well I can build it again.
I really need to know where the wires to and from the Alternator go. The started motor is fairly obvious.
Then there is the instrument panel, oh well, it is all fun ain't it?

Simes

It isn't hard to build a wiring harness....I have built a few for engines that had fire damage/water damage......

You can take hints from any diesel engine wiring harness....

Make sure you use color codes for wire......

Nice winter project.

Here’s a “typical” Engine Gauge diagram, with colour codes.
