Default 1990 240sx swapped into a 1995 hard body

Hi folks, first timer here and I’m really hoping someone can help me out.
Just picked up a 1990 2400sx ka24e engine. It’s wiring harness is a mess.
I was able to find a 1995 Hardbody wiring harness for it.
The 2400sx ka24e is pre OBD.
Will the Hard body harness work?
It’s all going into my 1970 Datsun 521 pickup.
Thanx in advance folks.

Hi Duke,

We don't get many of these types of swaps on here. The few I have seen, those people were recommended to check out the 240sx (https://www.240sx.org/) or ratsun (https://ratsun.net/) forums.

Just trying to steer you right.

If the 95 isnt odb2 it's very doable.

Welcome to IN Duke....

Like Foul_Mouth stated, if the 95' harness is NOT OBD2, you should be good.

Of course, you're putting this is something that will be stripped clean anyways, right? So, you can put most anything you can make run, in it. You could go OBD2 compliant...

But, GL... luv to see what you do with this. Please consider starting a thread in Project Build Log area.

Probably at least as bad as a Jeep so worse than a cow.
