Light switch wiring -- FUSE??

Postby Buzzard Wing » Wed Aug 18, 2004 10:41 pm

I think I have figured out the new wiring harness (took a little while to figure out the old one). The two wires from the generator (alternator?) are the ones that threw me the most. They are in the loom on the new harness.

At any rate, this 71 Cub had not had lights in some time apparently. Had I not been gawking at Cubs earlier this week I would not have known that the hole on the dash is for a fuse! (This one has a key) The harness has a jumper that I belive goes to the fuse (from one side of the key switch). The question is how do you wire the fuse and the light switch? I suppose the fuse is available from radio shack or something.

I am also looking for the the connectors that go in the lighting plugs. No luck anywhere around here.

Thanks, you folks are awesome!

The fuse holder is available from Case/IH for about six bucks. Not sure about the connectors.

radio shack has them. there are two sizes, 5/8 and 9/16 i believe. you want the smaller one to fit the bottom hole in the dash.

I will give them a try.
I was able to find the connectors that go in the lighting plugs at Pep Boys, they are labled for Ford, but look like they will work perfectly.

Thanks again.

You mean the ones to fit in the back of the headlight assembly?

No, it is the one in the dash itself, I just have a round hole on the bottom.
