Wire Routing on 1/2 ton Firewall

Post by Don »

I'm rewiring my Dodge WC40. The original wiring is long gone, and there was just a mish-mash of plastic covered wire. Does anyone have a picture of a fairly original half ton firewall showing where the major bundles of wire are routed?
Thanks,
Don

I followed as best I could to get the wring correct on the half-ton Carryall project I'm working on now. Maybe some of these photos will help that I shot recently:

There are a couple of clips on the oil bracket:

Clip on the generator lock down bolt:

Headlight wiring:

May not be perfect, but trying to get the original configuration. Hopefully, these photos will give you some ideas.

Good luck!

Thanks Zeph. These will be a great help. Where did you get the connectors for the headlights?

Hi Don,

They were part of the wiring harness from Vintage Wiring of Maine.
