It really is a nice schematic, simply done and well labeled.

I have seen that before on Ford Barn. Looks like it may have had an index or guide at some time to go with the circled #.

Nice diagram. IMO the only improvement would be to possibly indicate that the 'red' and 'armored' wires pass thru the junctions box

I believe this is the page it comes from, for whatever that's worth.

Just to nit-pick:
Missing generator connection at (8), yellow-black; ammeter wire to (7), also yellow-black.

Early A coil (black wire) was connected to (5) but this was corrected by FSB 11/29, which should be applied to all cars, as shown in this drawing. The original wiring drawing was never corrected.

The site alexiskai references indicates Terry Oberer is the originator. Give him a call, he might still be around. (It's a pretty old site.)

Possibly because this diagram is for Troubleshooting the Ignition Circuit he left the Charging circuit out.

Good point. I'm a "completist", I guess.

Thank you. It is sad I can no longer thank Terry for his excellent work.

You could still make a public posthumous thank you.

"We see so far because we stand on the shoulders of giants."


I have jested and substituted "toes" for "shoulders" but it may be more accurate.
