Nice write up. I thought you got rid of your Astro? Or do you have 2 vans now?
I have two vans currently -- other one is sitting on jack stands with the entire front suspension pulled waiting for me to get some time to install the solid front axle... so I use this one in the meantimeM_a_t_t said:Nice write up. I thought you got rid of your Astro? Or do you have 2 vans now?
Stole them from another forum -- here's what it looks like to me:sixsix said:- not sure how they look to you or others, but all 3 of your "connector" photos have the phtofckt logo right across the middle - right where the things are sitting in the pic.
No real reason -- just extra safety I suppose.sixsix said:- why pull both pos. & neg. off the Battery ?
I assumed it made it easier to separate the fuse panel -- but now that I think of it -- you probably don't have to do that...sixsix said:- why pull all the other fuses and gadgets ?
Point taken -- I thought I had better pictures but I was in a bit of a rush. Honestly -- it's really self explanatory at that point though -- you just press the connector into the empty slot and it "snaps" into place. Not that easy to photograph that process anyways.sixsix said:- you got a gazillion pics of box removal, disassembly and reassembly - then just one (1) blurry, crappy ( sorry ) pic of the "conn." being put in.
I know. I know. I was going to use a solder-seal connector -- but didn't have one in the correct size. My skill level isn't great for soldering 10AWG --- I always end up melting some insulation so I just went with a crimp terminal.sixsix said:- after all that and a "Crimp Conn" was used - Really ? - no solder ?
YupSportsBoy said:So I'm looking back on this now and wondering if I'm reading right what you did here Winnie -
You went from having a power wire run from the efan to the upfitter studs on the front of the fuse box with a self-resetting circuit breaker
Having a power wire run from the efan to a fuse you installed in the extra slot in the fuse box.
Is that right? So really the only benefit is that it looks cleaner?
I believe his st statement in the 1st post answers that.WinnieVan said:I love when things look OE
