Re: 69 Harness Diagram - bulkhead backwards?
Hi Mike and Jeff
I am presently going thru the same thing on my 69 SS/RS.
Fixing what wires needed from over the years of abuse and or upgrading to what I need for my Install – MSD 6AL Ignition and Distributor, Adding Classic Auto Air, “Lock up” switch for my 700R4 Trans Converter and so on. Both Dash harness and Engine Bay.
I have all of the AIM, Assembly Instruction Manuals, Wiring Diagrams and any Pic’s I can find on this subject and was stumped on this issue.
I Pinned and Unpinned until I finally decided to come up with something that works for me – I needed to wire it where if there is any problem, I can use the Wiring Schematic to troubleshoot/ Trace/ “Ring out” – Right ?
The “C” Connector goes over the 2 Tabs/Slots on the FWD side of the Fuse Box/ Wiring Block, that cannot change. It is towards the Engine. And the other Connector towards the Fender side.
What is shown on the Wiring Diagrams and that Drawn View (Fig. 12-25 Typical) as the “Engine Connector” and “Lighting Connector” are labeled in reverse.
View “A” is looking towards the rear of the Car so the “C” Connector will be towards the Engine. - I found the “C” Connector is for the Lighting and the smaller one is for the Engine/ Wiper circuits.
I also made this Excel Sheet to help me put everything together.
