Thanks Todd. Just when I think I've got a handle on the Dura Spark stuff, I find out it's all a vicious rumor! Smoke and mirrors even (no pun intended Broncoblood!)
I think my almost-New-Year's resolution will be to find that Dura Spark shop manual from Ford that I've talked about over the years. Read it once, then put it away for future use. Cleverly hidden of course.

And your fire sure had it's way with the wiring didn't it? Bummer for sure.
But hey, it'll buff out.

thank you Todd.
yes I would like to see some pics of the exact harnesses that I have lost so I can do an accurate search and or have some custom original look ones made? I do have Dana n Melissa at the Hut looking for me as well.

Yep, we can see the pics. What a mess!
Are you sure there is enough on the body side of the harness to utilize with any new engine harness stuff?
Did the alternator harness melt down too?

Distributor harness is part of the trigger module, and can be purchased separately or with a new distributor.
The alternator harness looks like it's still available at least for '73 models. You might be able to make it work, or you might not. If yours used the "Dura Spark" connector style instead of the flat style then you're kind of out of luck I think. Other than used donor. Which might not be out of line actually, what with all the new harnesses being installed these days. Maybe check out the classifieds here and post up a "parts wanted" story for your stuff.

The engine bay harness looks to still be available for yours too (I think you said that already) so there's that at least.
A new ignition harness is available too, but just for the Blue module which is more desirable anyway.

So "most" of it's doable, but you might have to punt on a couple of details.

Just to be clear, Duraspark came out in 1976 and even then they called Breakerless even tho all the parts are Duraspark including the module. 1974s had a different wiring harness and module DY157 unique to the '74s. The '75s also had a unique module DY166 and the same wiring harness as the '74s. Neither of these modules is available from Ford and the harness is not being made. The '76-'86 Duraspark II is still being made by Ford. So I would recommend using a Duraspark II harness and module. The module is here;https://www.ebay.com/itm/Ignition-Co...sAAOSwb39dmmi8. The only module unique to Cal. is the '77-'79 Duraspark I with module DY-204. Read this thread off Pantera Int.https://pantera.infopop.cc/topic/dur...sd-distributor. I still recommend Broncoblood get the DurasparkII harness and module. There was a lot of bad info here after my first post.

Sorry they got upside down but if you need any clarification on a picture just let me know.I see one difference between your module and a duraspark 1 is the wire running from R on the ignition switch on the black module goes back inside the module and has a voltage dropping resistor and the duraspark 1 has a wire not going inside the module and doesn't have a dropping resistor..I am not sure if the 77-81 duraspark has a resister somewhere else.Also you don't have to buy a module from ebay since you can pick up one from a good parts house.I didn't see anything but good solid info on the other posts.Good luck

My 75 Baja has one.

Just for clarification. My 1975 has large cap and clip on coil connection. It appears to be factory. Originally from Nevada.
