Default Quick sanity check - 41 pu headlamp wiring.

Just checking.

I'm wiring the headlamps on my 41 pu. I have the wiring loom running along the left frame rail, terminating near the hole in the inner fender. from here I intend to run a harness into the left hand headlamp unit. That's a no brainer and pretty straightforward. My question is, where do you route the harness that runs across the vehicle to the right hand headlamp? My instinct tells me to run it across the brace at the top of the grille. Is that correct?

Would I be right in thinking there would have been a short link harness over to the right hand side, and both headlamp units would have had the same length flying leads coming off, connecting just inside the holes in the inner fender?

I intend to put a long lead on the right hand unit, long enough to reach the left hand inner fender, hence doing away with one set of connectors. But I digress. I just wanted to check the correct routing across the truck.

Thanks in advance, Mart.

Mart, the harness crosses over in that channel on the backside of the radiator under the tubes. It's held in place by the folding tangs.

Er,. Ok, thanks, Lonnie.

I'm not sure I have that part.

Is it part of the radiator assembly?

Can anyone help with a picture?

Is there supposed to be an air deflector in front of the radiator? Would that be it?

Mart.

Best pic I have, enlarge top area below water outlets, there is a tray there with little tangs that hold the wires.

That's brilliant, thanks guys. My radiator does not have that (It came from a 40 coupe - is that why?) No wonder I couldn't see an obvious route for the wiring.

I'll look at what I can do.
