68 camaro ignition switch wiring

Hey fellas , wondering if anyone has a wiring diagram and can tell me what color wires go where on the back of the switch . My car doesnít have the pigtail connector so Itís not as simple as plugging it in. So if someone could could tell me I would massively appreciate it ! Thanks , Nick

Re: 68 camaro ignition switch wiring

I can open it but I don't think it's for a 68 with the ignition switch in the column. It looks to be for the column mounted switch ?

Re: 68 camaro ignition switch wiring

I didn't explain it good in my other post but the diagram shown has all of the terminals flat and horizontal like on a switch that would be on a column but the 68 switch for the Camaro (and I think it's just like what's on my 68 Chevy II Nova) has a round backside and the terminals going in different directions ?.

68 ignition switch backside:



Now that I see other info from the AIM, that makes more sense to me than the rectangular drawing/diagram from before.

It also looks like the replacement switch above may even have labeled terminals ?

Re: 68 camaro ignition switch wiring

Don't know if this will offer any help ?







Since you don't have the plug housing, you could figure out what wire is what and then how the switch operates as far as making and breaking different connections due to key positions and then put it together.

Thanks , thatís what Iíve been doing today and I seem to be making some headway. The difficult part is the cars not fully put together ( hasnít been on the road in over 20 years) so I really canít test that much

If it is that far apart you might want to get a complete new harness.
