Wiring up the lights

Postby ShawnAgne » Fri May 27, 2016 10:50 pm

On my 52 I have the lights installed and I'm ready to run the cable to the switch. Question is to remove the panel with the switch looks like there are the screws holding up the hood and then two bolts at the bottom. Is that it?

Also looking at it I'm guessing I should probably support the tank when I remove this panel correct?

For the lights I ended up putting the 4150 bulbs in my teardrop lights. Used gas line hose to fill up the extra space like it is shown in another thread.

To remove the dash/switch/amp meter tank support, your assessment is correct, 1/4 x 20 truss head screws connecting the tank and 2 studs attaching it to the bell housing. I would rather remove the hood/tank and leave the tank support in place to work on the wiring. To do this, remove the grill screen in front of the radiator to access the 2 bolts that hold the hood to the radiator supports and remove the 2 bolts, then two 1/4 x 20 screws on each upper "dogleg" (don't try to get the lower ones out, they'll probably break), disconnect the fuel line, remove the wiring harness from the clips, and lift the tank/hood off. Easier done if tank is near empty. JMHO

Also disconnect the battery when removing the light switch. Very easy to short the wires.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!
