Wiring Harness Replacement, Pizza & Libations Party

Jet Copter Pilot came over a few weeks ago to have a look @ my Electrical problems on my '58 M-100 Merc. Truck.
He said that I needed to replace my Wiring Harness under the dash.
Plus there might be a few other Electrical probs as well.
He's now on the injured list as he Buggered Up both his knees & unable to help.
So for those that might be interested, I'll be having a Wiring Harness Replacement, Pizza & Beverage Party as soon as I get enough Individuals to reply to my plea for assistance.
Please leave a message here if your able to lend a hand, Thank'ee!

The weekend of the 17th is the only weekend I'll be around until after the first of the year. If you hold out that long, I should be able to cruise over for a couple hours.

I'm assuming you need someone who actually knows a thing or two about wiring and can assist..., rather than someone who will warm a stool, drink beverages, eat pizza and offer amusing, at times witty, but overall useless anecdotes throughout the process? Hmmm, maybe I can re-sort your collection of nuts/bolts/fasteners...

What are we looking at here, Flashy? Are we talking about fabbing up a new harness from scratch, or will you have a replacement harness to swap in? What "few other problems" do you suspect?

Not trying to give you the third degree, just want a little better idea of what's going on before committing...I'd like to help if I can.

wpnaes; Yeppers, need someone that is experienced in putting the Kabosh on Electrical problems. You'd be doing that sorting to my cousins collections, mate.

Steve; JCP stated that I should purchase a W/H from Golden Rodtronics, which I did, as it was only $185.00. The OME W/H for the "Wee Beastie" was almost $450.00. Way out of my price range.
There's some bare spots in the OME W/H that've jury rigged fixes, so it needs to be replaced just for that reason alone.
MSD box, coil &/or other electronics might be contributing to the problem? Distrib might have jump time? When she wouldn't catch when I tried to start her, she back-fired so badly, that she blew off the leftside tail pipe on the backside of the muffler.
I need the help of individuals that have experience in multiple areas in fixing probs & making vehicles run correctly. Plus have the proper tools in which to accomplish said task, as mine were stolen years ago & I've not even been able to come close to replacing them.

Thank'ee to D.H., wpnaes & S.B. for responding to my plea so quickly.

I could offer to lend some tools after I dust them off if needed ( timing gun, multimeters, wrenches, sockets, etc ). I may even have some hold over parts from past cars ( coil, msd box, maybe even a distributor ) to help troubleshoot components as well, Ill dig around a bit to see.

I should be able to stop by on the 17th as well, if not I can swing by a day or so earlier and drop off what you might need to borrow. I have gathered up some multimeters, soldering iron/gun, timing gun, etc but still have to go through the left over parts stuff I had from my old inline 6 ( not really sure what is in there yet ).
