reno808: we are working on a sample 944 harness now, and the 951 is next. Want to prove it to myself that we can find everything before I go too fast and make promises. Plus I want to take pictures and post it to our website so you guys can see it.

So tag that harness as to what it is and where it is from, then sit on it for just a little longer....

I was just going to offer a guena pig harness as long as I could have it back in a couple of months. :-)

I appreciate that.

Let me finish our 944 NA harness first, so I can confirm that I like the connectors that we have found and I can take pics of it and confirm that you guys like the finished product.

Then we will "graduate" to the more complicated 951 harness.

Carl, if you need another donor 951 harness, I have one you can have. It's still good but old, so I wasn't going to use it. I was going to make my own new harness but I'd rather buy one!

Thanks!

I have a good 944 NA harness here now to model and a 951 harness also. So for the moment, we're good.

We ordered our multi-pin connectors yesterday, and the rest of the loom arrives today. Pictures will follow...

Some pics of our 928 wiring harnesses for you so you can see the quality while you wait for me to post 944 harness pics

Carl,

How are you handling the engine ground wires? In the 951 harness, these converge at a cold weld joint within the snorkel section. From your description is sounds like your connector will be located past the engine end of the snorkel. Are you planning on soldering the grounds together before this point?

We found that many of the 944/951 series wires were just crimped into their connectors and left at that.

We are going thru the added step of soldering every wire-to-connector joint.

If I can find a minute to go grab a picture of an example from the wiring bench, I'll post it.

I'm not sure I mentioned this yet or not...

We have two resealable looms we can use on the wiring harness so you can open and close your loom as many times as you like to add wires, inspect it, whatever.

The standard woven resealable loom is good to 257 deg F and is the loom that our prices are calculated with.

The High-temp loom is $15 a foot more expensive, but a worthy upgrade to those that want greater abrasion, chemical, and temperature resistance. I figure racers and 951 guys. It has a silicone outer, a firebraid inner lining, and is rated to 500 deg F.

The diagramming of the 944 harness is complete. All routes, sizes, connectors and looms have been identified. The 944 wiring board has been made.

Now we start making the new one...

Thats all right. I started this thread in 2005...

I can tell you that the 951 harness is next right after the 944 one is completed. So - lets say witrin the next 45 days.

I can't tell you the price yet until everythingis here for it and I have a handle on the labor. I just got in the replacement Hammer connector (OBD I) for the 85/86 cars and that single connector was $65 at my cost (and we are a licensed Porsche parts distributor). Thats the sort of thing that drives prices up in a hurry. The 951 harness we are locating pieces for has one, so that why i found it and bought it....

I'd consider putting a weatherpac or other common connector on the end of the AFM wires, so that one could use jumper harnesses on the end with either the factory AFM connector or whatever connector is needed on the MAF being used. Seems like so many of these cars have aftermarket MAFs, it woud be worth accommodating them.... Just a thought on a greatly appreciated effort!

Looks good. I also have a spare harness for an 86 951 if you need one. I pulled if from my parts car before it got crushed.
