Default Wiring pic needed

Can someone please post a pic or two of how the wiring harness routes from the bottom of the steering column toward the front cross member?

I'm specifically trying to see how the headlight wiring gets there.

This is for my '35 pickup that I'm wiring similar to a '39. The original wiring was pretty much non-existent.

I think that 1935 - 1936 Ford pickup and car headlight wiring is the same. If that is the case, the following routing diagram showing the actual path of wiring may be of help to you.

Well, I need a picture. I want to know how it is routed over/under/around the front cross member and into the fender wells.

DD, that '36 car ain't got a lick of original wiring anywhere. Not that I'm going for originality, but....

Heard, drive on up here to Rising Sun, Maryland in that cool looking 36 3w, that I never got to see at any of Vic's gatherings , and you can check out the wiring on my mostly all original '35 fordor sedan

PS, I may already have some pics of the wiring in the area you need. All I need to do is find them

Hey John! That would be quite an adventure for sure as I'm not sure the coupe is up for it.

38 trucks had about the same as your asking for a 35. Couple clips. but Vanpelts diagram covers it. Not sure if I'd worry about where it goes if you are changing things up anyway. My 36 coupe has stock electrical routing if you like, let me know.

Heard, didn't you put a T5 5speed overdrive, and retain the closed torque tube banjo rear in your coupe? If so that baby should motor on down (or up ) the road with no sweat, assuming the engine is strong/capable

I'm looking for those pictures now, if I can't find them, I can take more. PU should be same as passenger car. Also, there could be some info with pics in the V-8 Clubs 1935-36 Book.

Van Pelts website is probably mostly schematic type illustrations. You need actual photos IMO.

Hey John....That T5 W/TORQUE TUBE went into the '35 pick-up that Heard is trying to finish-up. I'm sure the 3-window will end-up with a T5 once this truck gets done. Early pics from the T5 install below! DD

Yes John. Pics is what I need.

And Dick is correct. T5 is going in the truck. The coupe has gone from bad shifting to worse so it'll get a makeover if I live long enough to get it done. I already have the Jeep tranny and the correct Chevy tranny.

Heard, Here are 3 photos showing the wire routing from the bottom of the steering column to the driver's side head light harness, across the radiator to the passenger side harness.
Hope it helps.

Heard, I looked, but couldn't find my pictures. I can retake some shots for you if you want to see more after checking out the pictures Don sent. Just let me know with an email or PM.
