Re: Dash Strap ?? Gen Light On, New Gauges
I don't know about the dash strap, unless its a braided length of wire with terminals on both ends and yes, it gets grounded.
Having three ground straps on one screw is fine, just make sure the connection is on good metal and have a good return path to the battery.
The gen light not being on. Power to one side of the bulb comes from the ign switch. It appears a brown/white wire supplies power to the fire wall connector. Then, its piggyback to a brown wire and to one side of the bulb. On the engine side of firewall, the same brown continues to the volt reg connector, treminal #4, the right(?) terminal.
The other side of the bulb is a pink wire, as to other bulbs, HOT, OIL, BRAKE, and Lt & Rt turn signal indicators. The source of power comes from a tie-point , then to the Fuse panel and supplied by a pink wire from the ign switch.
Gauge lamps are hooked up to gray (supply) and black (ground).
Hope this helps.
