Today on this 2006 Ford F350, well be installing the Pollack T-One connector part number pk11893-11932. We will start off at the bumper of the vehicle where you will find the previously installed 7 pole with a gray locking tab on it. We will undo the lock and pull the 7 pole free, but first we will need to loosen this bracket here for more working room. With everything separated we will start installing the T- One harness and lock it into position. Now that we have made our connections underneath we need to go ahead and drill a hole so that we can mount our connector in the bed. It is recommended that you have a minimum five inch clearance behind where ever you are going to drill.
Now we will take the other end of our new wiring harness, feed it up behind the fender and out the hole we just drilled. With our wiring through the hole we can now put it in our new connector. Following the numbers and colors listed in the instructions, you want to match it up to the numbers that are on the back of your connector. Make sure you press them in firmly so they lock in place, give it a little tug to make sure. You want to make sure you do the center pin before you complete all the others first.
With all of our wires in place we can go ahead and install our locking tab. Now with all of our wires installed and our locking tab in place we can go ahead and put our connectors together and push in on our gray locking tab to secure it. With all of our wires connected we can go ahead and secure our new 7 pole connection, I am going to use self tapping screws. That completes the installation of our new Pollak 7 pole connector. .
All right, today on this 2008 Ford F250 we're going to install part number HM47210. This is Hopkins Endurance quick install 7 way trailer connector with universal pigtail harness. First thing we need to do is actually remove the original connector that's on our truck. In this case the connector was damaged, it was no longer usable. What we're going to do is basically cut off the end and start with fresh wire. Now before we install our wiring one thing we're going to do to the Hopkins part is go ahead and cut off the ring terminal for the white wire and our application here is simply not going to be long enough to attach it to the frame so we'll be using the factory ground wire that's in the wiring harness.
Alright, today on a 2008 FordF250, we're going to install part number PK11893-11932. First thing we need to do is go ahead and get our wire harness ready for installation. On the end of the wire, with terminals already crimped in place, we need to put them into a connector that will eventually go into the back of the 7 pole connector. In the back of the connector, there are numbers that tell you which wires go where. Number one gets a red wire. You simply push it into place until it clicks.
All right, today on this 2008 Ford F-250, we're going to install part number HM40975-11998. This is Pollak's 7-pole and 4-pole Trailer Connector Sockets with the Mounting Bracket and Wiring. Now, this wiring harness is designed to be spliced into the vehicle harness. Now, our truck already has a wiring harness already installed on it. However, the connector has been exposed to the elements way too long and has corroded up. We'll go ahead and take the wiring harness pulled away from the frame, making it a little bit easier to work on.
