Re: console wiring

There is an extension harness needed as a without gauges and with gauges harnesses are different and extension harness hooks to those same monitoring functions but require different sending units.

Without gauges: speedo, fuel gauge, OIL, GEN, BRAKE, and TEMP lights and their electrical sending units (switches) for the OIL & TEMP lights.
With console gauges: speedo, tach, BRAKE light, then the consoles monitoring the same light functions from above.
So a different inst cluster is used as well as dash harness.
However, a console gauge set-up can be wired in.
Oil pressure requires running an oil line.
Fuel gauge can use the same sending unit.
Ammeter is its own circuit and can be hooked up without a problem.
Temperature gauge will need a gauge s/unit in the cyl head vice a switch for the light.

I'm sure others here familiar with the additional material can give better advice.

Re: console wiring

A console harness is wired from the factory with connections direct to senders. Adding a console harness can be done if you follow the diagrams.
This shows you that all the console wires go to the plug, which then plugs into the primary harness wire plug, which is already wired into the sending units and connections in the main fuse panel where required.

Re: Console wiring

Yes if it was "orginally" a console car from the factory. The factory would see 'console' on the order sheet and grab the complete wire harness that was built with that console wire harness as part of it. If the car was originally NOT a console car, that extra plug and wiring wont be there to connect too. Then you are on your own trying to duplicate all the wires going to the right places.

Re: Console wiring

Sad to say yes you are pretty much on your own. I have a 67 that was original 6 cyl with a/c column shift. Now it's and RS with v8 floor shifter and console gauges. Gauges all had to be wired in manually but it can be done. Now I am currently replacing the whole chassis harness so this time around won't be as difficult. You may want to look into that depending on condition of the harness in your car. Good luck!

Re: Console wiring

Since the car was a floor shift 3-spd, the purple & purple/white wires would be part of the dash harness and since a '67, not connected to any safety switch, as in clutch pedal, or was not an automatic equipped, so, leaving the OE design may be the key. Otherwise, pick a convenient point and wire in neutral safety switch.

The reverse lights are a plug next to the gas pedal and may go to the trans switch. Those will have to be rerouted to console shifter neutral safety switch to work, power on pink wire with light green going to rev lights int he body harness.
