About half ways down the page you can see how I installed the wiring harness on my 65. Maybe it helps you.

Ab Mitte der Seite kannst Du sehen wie ich meinen neuen Kabelbaum in meinen 65er eingezogen habe. Vielleicht hilft es Dir.

Great pictures and it makes it look easier when you see it this way. My issue is belly pans. :roll: :? :roll:

Belly pans on bus, that had them from the factory shouldn't be an issue because they had a pipe going from front to rear for the wiring harness. Of course who know what the state of that pipe is after so many years.

You can tie a rope to the old harness when you remove it. That will help you when installing the new one.

My bus is on its side with the original harness in place. If you still needs pics I'll load some up for you

raina Wed Jan 13, 2021 12:36 am

Yes if its possible send the pictures

For my understandig, are there are different ways how the cables are mounted? Is it correct that my 67 has a tunnel and older ones are outside? Have not seen my bus under since years because i live not anymore there where i had the possibility to use a lifting platform. I start in spring after some years ago again.

Yes, this is where it gets interesting. The PO had new ones installed and I don't know if the pipe is there or not. :roll: I guess I'll find out when I decide to pull ni a new wire harness.

I believe all year belly pan busses have a tube down the right right frame rail for the wire harness. Only the front-to-rear brake line in mounted on the outside of the belly pans.

My englisch again ... what doed "belly pan bus" mean ? Its a stupid word in the German translation named "bauchpfannenbus" .

Krustybus Fri Jan 15, 2021 7:45 am

Belly pans are reinforcements welded to the rockers and frame to strengthen the body on busses with sunroofs or cargo doors on both sides. Here are some examples I found by searching the gallery:

They are stamped steel panels


Installed:


Because it seals the frame area, the wiring harness requires a tube.
On busses without the belly pan, the harness runs in the same place ,but is secured with welded on metal tabs that are folded over to hold it in place.

Thanks for that information ! Thats not used on my bus. Makes work on the cables much easyer fo me.
