While building this, I spent most of my life at home in the shop. You can tell that by how fast this thing really came together. Another weekend or two later and it was finally on all 4s. That was a great thing to see. For my wiring, i decided to go with aftermarket lights because this was not a 100% correct restoration, and i thought it looked good with that set of lights that i had laying around in the shop. The stock odyssey lights that i had for this one were in good condition, but i cleaned them up and put them on the other odyssey just to keep it more correct. At this time i had all my wiring harness finally done. I used a relay and a 180 degree fan sensor to automatically switch the fan on when water got up past 180. For the water pump, i used a Mercedes axillary electric pump. It actually works very well.
And finally, just figuring out how to setup the sled harness for the odyssey chassis. Everything was fairly straight forward, but i wanted to move all of the electronic components (CDI, Coil, voltage regulator) to the same spot that the stock odyssey had them. it took quite a bit of figuring, and a lot of reading on the sled manual to figure out where the wires went, and what they did. I purchased the sled manual online in PDF form for $10 as i couldn't find it free like i could the FL350 manual, but it proved to be well worth it. I was able to eliminate headlight circuit and voltage regulator for the sled headlight because instead of having them wired in to run only when the engine was running, i wired them in like the factory odyssey had them. They are switched, and then the key is the master power switch. The key is another area where i made a change to the stock configuration. I couldn't make the odyssey key work exactly how i wanted it to. it would allow the engine to have spark while the key was off, but not when it was on (tested this by jumping the solenoid). At that time i thought it would be neat to save the sled key that still had the start position instead of just on/off like the odyssey. So now, i can start the odyssey by the key, or the stock button and also kill it with the key or the stock button. Enough talk, here are some pictures.
