Now, I don't have these personally, but a nice, large-sized image with an explanation of what relay does what would be an excellent addition to this site.

Now, I'm off to cross-reference the high beam relay to the workshop manual.

I don't have any images of the inside of one, but it is basically the same thing as a solenoid.

I meant a labeled image of what does what in that nightmare we call an electrical bulkhead.

It is not too bad to trace a wire from the diagram in this car. Its not like there is any complicated circuitry like there is with newer cars. The colored wiring diagram helps a lot.

Also, Farrar has snipped the major circuits from the workshop manual. There should be one of the headlight circuit.

I've since fixed the issue; a fuse melted in this car, yet again. They tend to do that when you drive the car constantly...

... that nightmare we call an electrical bulkhead.

With a few modifications it doesn't look particularly nightmarish anymore:

Is that rust I see in someone's fuse compartment?

Nah - not rust. Bill's just going for the 'aged patina' look in his fuse compartment, as real car guys prefer that look vs the new / fully restored look :)
