Nope that's a spring from a seal. Hopefully one of your old ones.

Probably from the transmission driveshaft seal. When I first tried to pop it out I used a dentist pick and tore the old seals boot. So it (hopefully) popped out then.

Local sign company who prints my posters/window signage/advertisements for my business said they would order 2 24x48 ABS textured plastic sheets for trade($45). So when I get the doors back I'll be able to have some nice looking door panels. My mother also sewed some pull straps for me out of some old climbing webbing I had laying around. Should look great!

Paint shop said they wanted my wrecked shell for some odd reason, said they'd give me a little bit off the paint job if they could have it + all the wrecked panels and extra parts I had laying around. Thank god, I wanted to get rid of 75% of that **** since it was all worthless, not even worth trying to part out.

So much clean!



Wiring has hit a major stop sign. I guess when I was pulling it some of the connections came loose off the bottom loom. But it isn't exactly clear from where they separated from. There are 2 black wires and a red wire that are not connected and I can't find the end source. The 2 black I'm guessing are grounds, and they are both coming out of the same bundle so I know they don't go to each other. I was too tired tonight after putting the subframes on the totaled car and moving all the parts into the car to tear apart the loom to find the source. Hopefully I can, otherwise I may be fucked.



Seriously wish I could pay one of you guys to come to my house to inspect the harness for me, wiring just doesn't make sense to my brain. Saying that there were several wires with loose connections that I cut apart, stripped the casing, re-soldered and heat-shrinked back together. I want to delete more but I just don't care anymore about the 2-3 lbs I'd save from the harness.



Agenda for tomorrow(I hope)

-Steam clean and hot water evac my Mothers friend Acura trunk(her son also owns a bakery and he spilled about a gallon of honey in it)

-assemble clutch and transmission and reconnect to engine

--put on new rotors, cleaned and painted calipers, and wheels

-clean inside/outside of gas tank

-time permitting... pressure wash carpets and dye black

Most of us can identify harness plugs with a good picture. Take a pic of something close to those two wires, and we should be able to tell you where they come from judging by what's next to them.

Didn't you more or less part that thing out at some point? I thought you just had your MSM and your POS MX6

EDIT: except I forgot... you said something about 6 cars and a wife all crammed into a 250 sq ft apartment or something like that, and that I need to rearrange my priorities.

Previous owner parted a good chunk of it out. I'm rescuing it.

I have the MSM, this 93 Miata, the red 90 MX6, a black 88 MX6, the 93 Escort, and an 00 Cherokee.


It's bad. And sick. And i hate myself.


Yep, the edit is right. Though it IS a 650sqft apartment, and i rent a 2 car garage and a shop. It's dumb. Too bad.

I'll get a more detailed picture of it tonight when I go down to work on it, thanks Curly for all the help you have provided in this chaotic build.

Thanks, I don't feel like I am going at a frenetic pace but it certainly seems so after everyone stating said ridiculous pace. I'm just going this fast because I want to get it out of my parents garage before the holidays start up and they start using it more. Oh also I'd like to drive it instead of stare at it in parts.

If it's on the harness from my old car I may be able to help with a good picture

I apologize in advance for the massive amounts of pictures. I don't know what happened to my brain when I pulled the loom since I think I cut a couple of these but there are few indicators of where they connect.

Engine assembled and waiting for TSE bolts and new 2860 turbine housing



NRG quick release adapter with deleted clockspring.(I don't need a horn)



I'll number the wiring pictures so you can reference them without quoting the picture.

6)




7)

9)


10)

Big thick red I think was there when I got the car, I think it is a hot wire feed.

Anything in the ms3 plug, check the excel file on the cd, also, braineack color codes his writing in the ms, he might have a description of the pin that each write connects to on that harness.

Some under dash harnesses went to the air c bag and were unused.

The bundle with all the butt connectors looks like the stereo harness.

That thin blue wire wrapped around the loom may not be connected, butt out would be on the excel sheet.

The iat used the maf harness. Black wires may go to injector harness, vics control. Ebc, and ignitor

Afr used stock harness, two injectors used stock harness, two coils use stock harness.

I don't recall that funny white connector

BTW, the 1992 Mazda Field Service Manual that is in a sticky somewhere on the site contains excellent wiring diagrams along with drawings of the connectors and location of the connectors on the car. Well worth the download.

Figuring this out is going to take a bit of time I'm afraid. Personally, I leave factory wiring harnesses as intact and unmolested as possible -- that's really the key to reliable wiring for most of us.

I suppose my question at this point is: What's stopping you from dipping into the extra money pool that you didn't plan on having when you first bought the car, and building a new harness from scratch specifically to work with Megasquirt, instead of carrying on with a factory harness and all the downsides they come with?

Besides the fact that wiring is scary, of course.

All of this wiring was not part of my wiring delete. Anything I deleted from the wiring harness was taken care of. All of this was wired in a way that it was not possible to remove the wiring harness from the firewall without cutting the wires. So some of it was forced due to how it was looped through the car.

Still my fault for not labeling accurately, but I don't want it to seem like I just deleted crap ***** nilly.

Give me a link to a custom harness vendor and/or person that can do it and then I can give you an answer

and the answer I'm sure on the "custom wiring harness" is already a no. I know how much they run for porsches, and even if they are 1/2 of that cost, it is way out of my budget.

Also, I have the stock wiring harness from the 1990 if all else fails...

No i'm saying do it yourself. Grab a DIY Autotune flying lead, terminate it yourself, win at life.

I wouldn't pay someone to wire a basic Miata harness from scratch, that seems silly. :P

I thought so too

Time to learn how to read a wiring diagram tonight and do the full monty. Car will be in paint until the first week of December so there isn't a huge rush. Especially since most of my parts are all ready to be thrown in the car.

Contemplating assembling the running subframe with engine/ppf/subframes all put together and drop the body on top of it.
