I need some electrical help- 68 Camaro

Over the years there have been quite a few wires added to my fuse panel, and now I have a problem with my tach and temp guages. I wanna get to the bottom of those two problems and really straighten everything out so that its clean and neat under there.

Are there any good places to read up on 1st gen Camaro wiring and fuse panel?

Assembly manual or chasis manual. I can't remember which one. I have both. I think its the chasis manual as the assembly manual is a whole lot of not very good drawings.

Re: I need some electrical help- 68 Camaro

in those situations where there a lot of wires added to the fuse panel over time, 1st thing I do is get that mess cleaned up. I remove each one and cut the car on and re add them to find out what they all do.

Actually I like the AIM Assembly Instruction Manual for elec. issues. It has color code letters and diagrams that can usually be followed to trace what you need. I referred to it alot while upgrading my wires

Re: I need some electrical help- 68 Camaro

You can start in the stickies in electrical. There is a bunch of good info there, some good pictures, excellent circuit by circuit wiring diagrams (for 69, but VERY similar to 68 andpretty close to 67)
