vegestroke install question

just finishing up my install and i need to know where the 2wires {black and grey and black with eye ring} inside the cab on the main harness i believe they are for the heat mat for the filter on the outside. but i could not find any thing in the instructions for where to hook them up inside? hope this is not confusing

I just went out and checked my install... I attached a gray wire with a black stripe and eye ring to ground. The black wire is certainly ground also.

Looking at the instructions, I don't know why I attached it to ground, but I would remember if I had to figure it out so it must be buried in there somehow.

Did you try the little test steps that are outlined in section #5, item #13 in the install manual?

I talked to him, it turned out to be a blown fuse to his fuel pump...he got it fired up.

thanks everyone , i just gave it a test drive and she went to veggie in about 4 miles,
3rd best feeling in the world. very impressed with this kit. you can really tell while doing the install the amount of r&d that went in to it. WORTH EVERY PENNY! thanks again clay your posts had a lot to do with me getting my kit and even more to do with me building my home filtration setup {i basically copied yours} so any ways i will report back as time goes by on how my vegistroke setup is going.

btw my hands look like they were the rope in a pitbull tug o war after the 2 banjo bolts in the back of the motor.
