Smile Ignition module electrical wiring harness assembly

I need to replace the ignition module electrical wiring harness assembly off of my 1983 Ford F-150 half ton truck that has a 5.8L 351W engine(electrical wiring assembly for the engine oil pressure sending until,engine temperature sending unit,ignition coil and distributor). Are there any websites that specialize in Ford truck ignition electrical components? I need to replace this electrical wiring harness and any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank-you!

Everyone needs to keep looking on the vendors websites that cater to these trucks to see if and when they may reproduce some of the harnesses for these trucks. As far as I know, you can't get a new original harness.

What's wrong with the one you have? Generally, unless one burns they can be unwrapped and repaired....

Smile Insulation rubber (plastic) weathered and cracked at base of connection terminals

I realize that these wires can be repaired. The wiring harness itself is in pretty good condition considering its 25 years old (original), but what I've noticed is that some of the insulating rubber (plastic) at the base of some of the connection terminals is cracked due to the heat and has dried out? It's very brittle. Because of the location it makes it difficult to repair. Mind you these wires are 25 years old and are not going to last forever! I was just wondering if there were any websites that specialized in aftermarket Ford truck ignition module electrical wiring harnesses? That's all? Obviously Ford factory origionals are the best,but are no longer being reproduced?

If you can't find another harness, there's a relatively simple way to fix the broken insulation near the plugs. Most people don't realize how easy it is to remove wires from the plugs. Alomst all are held in by nothing more than a simple tab that can be held back with a precision screwdriver while you slide the wire out. Then it's just a matter of sliding on some heat shrink tubing and hitting it with a heat gun. Again, understand you prefer to go with the new harness, but it's a really easy repair if you can't get one.
