So, I was originally never going to tow anything with the 401.. but that has all changed with the RT 66 trip and new engine.
So, I recovered my original factory hitch and wiring from my buddy who "stored" it for me for 5 years! lol [ Thanks Dan ! ]
I figured this would be a no brainer, easy .. NOPE.
I forgot this thing is made from 1/4 thick steel.. It is heavy !!
I had a ton [ pun intended ] of trouble holding this thing up and trying to install it.
Almost smashed my face when I lost control of it.. uh oh.
Then, after fighting it "almost" into position.. I saw that the new tailpipe was going to interfere with the hitch. Dammit!!
So out comes the cutoff wheel.. and much cutting later, removed the small section that would hit... THEN had to fight it back into position and bolt it up.
I was so beat after this, I didn't even bother with the wires yet.. Anybody have details on this? Specifically, the large wire with the black connector on it?
