Kustom Harness offers custom engine monitoring station and dash assemblies. We can help you design, engineer and build an efficient engine monitoring station to provide complete efficient control and monitoring of one or more engines from one location. This type of design is especially suited for portable power generation stations, pump stations, oil field equipment and other applications that require start up and monitoring of the engines from a common remote location. The Kustom Harness custom dash panel provide for the installation of gauges, controls, switches, lighting and other engine monitoring and control functions. Kustom Harness offers very flexible design options that include all harnessing, sensors, gauges, lighting, switches, etc all pre-wired and built to your specification to provide for a true “plug and play” installation.

Bison Oil came to Kustom Harness with the desire for an engine monitoring station capable of monitoring two (2) Detroit Series 60 Electronic Engines, one was a DDEC II and the other was a DDEC IV.  The electronic engine control panel was built for one of Bison Oil’s Well Cementing Trailers.

The build profile included a custom dash panel complete with Tachometers, Water Temp gauges and sensors, Oil Pressure, the volt meter serviced both engines since we had a common electrical charge system, all toggle switches, engine start switches and shutdown lamps, engine warning lamps, engine diagnostic switches and one set of cruise switches for the Detroit DDEC II.  The final piece of the dash panel was the use of a hand throttle for the Detroit DDEC IV.

Kustom Harness built a complete engine control harness for both the DDEC II and DDEC IV engines with a low coolant level sensor feed, fused ECM switched and un-switched power feeds as well as a diagnostics plug at the ECM.  Switched key power required a breakout feed that was 10 feet long and supplied power to a 16″ DC 12 volt fan.  The main trunk harness was to be 25 feet long and pre-wired to the dash panel.  Bison Oil also had the need for multiple Drill Rig Work Lights.  Kustom Harness supplied a main power and ground circut to run from the starter positive and negative to a bus bar at the dash panel and prewired with 4 relays.

Kustom Harness Products has introduced a full line of electronic interface wire harness products for Caterpillar®, Cummins®, Detroit®, Eaton Fuller®, and Allison® that make a HD truck engine conversion or transmission swaps and installations a reality.

Kustom Harness Products builds custom engine monitoring station and dash assemblies to provide complete control and monitoring of one or more engines. This type of design is well suited for portable power generation stations, pump stations, oil field equipment and other applications that require start up and monitoring of the engines from a common remote location. The dash panels provide for the installation of gauges, controls, switches, lighting and other engine monitoring and control functions. All design options include harnessing, sensors, gauges, lighting and switches pre-wired and built to customer specifications for true plug and play installation.

“We purchased a complete dash panel and 3406E Caterpillar electronic engine including the wire harness interface for a late 1960’s B70 Euclid haul truck that came from the factory OEM with a mechanical 12v71 Detroit. The engine and dash panel hookup was 100% drop in plug and play as advertised,” said Andy Wolfe of SKW, a division of ASRC Construction Holding Co. based out of Alaska. Mr. Wolfe continued, “This project would have taken our shop weeks of labor without the dash panel and wire harness from Kustom™ Harness Products, they make the installation process so easy we just recently completed our 7th conversion using their Kustom™ Harness Products package”

Kustom Harness Products offers a complete installation kit for 1994-2010 CAT, Cummins or Detroit electronic engines and Gen 3 and Gen 4 Allison & Fuller automated transmissions. All installation conversion kits include an engine or transmission harness, cab harness, all required sensors, indicator lights, switches, feature labels, detailed installation diagram, and tech support line for guidance during installation. All of the Kustom™ Harness Products harness packages are built to the OEM’s recommendations for electronic engine control and transmission control. The benefit to this design is that all future diagnostics and troubleshooting is supported by the engine or transmission OEM’s service and support literature.
Some engine family swaps are similar in control and when applicable Kustom™ Harness Products offers harness modifications or adapters. Modifications and adapter conversions need to be evaluated on a case by case basis, but are both cost effective and require minimal labor to install.
