[Es2] my 20vt project

Although my memory is a little rusty on the subject, (it's been over two
years now)
I can say with certainty that in an AAN swap scenario, you do NOT want to
remove all of the wiring from the 7a harness.

Things like the Road Speed Sensor wiring, MFTS, Oil pressure sender, Oil
Temp sender (I know that I'm forgetting a few) are happily integrated in to
the wiring loom and will
need to be rewired if you remove them along with the rest of the harness.

The best advice I could give would be to remove only what is DEFINITELY
unique to the AAN motor:  The ignition and fueling wiring.
Once that's sorted out, fix what doesn't work and remove whatever else
seems to be redundant.

Any clue as to how the aan harness compares to the 3B? I'm collecting parts
& am trying to decide on aan or 3b. Any insight would help immensely.
Thanks. Mike
