you have to repin the DOHC dash plug in the single cam harness make sure you follow a write-up for SOHC to DOHC swap stuff to you find the dash plug and do it in reverse order.

What? So you have both harness plugs correct? If you just Google sohc to dohc swap there are plenty of write-ups.

No he has a single cam that he wants to put in his dohc shell , I have done this before and powersteering lines need to be single cam as its on the passenger side of sohc chassis and you have to repin the dash plug litteraly Google sohc to dohc 240sx swap and do the dash plug in revese
