Wagon is a 2000 so it has OBD plug in the cabin and the big round early gen OBD port in the engine bay. I didn’t like the fact that some codes/details I could get from cabin port and others I had to interrogate from the engine bay.

So right or wrong I decided to upgrade everything to the ‘04 setup from the donor.

Had to take a few days off with a grumpy back…

Pulled the fuel pump today and pumped out the last gallon or so of gas in the tank. With some judicious use of WD-40 a 3# hammer and a pry bar, was able to coax the big locknuts off of the tank. Was afraid I was going to have to cut them off.

Completely reasonable IMO.

What are you going to do with the old chassis harness?
