    Relay, Fuses, and Wiring Diagrams

    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.

    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...

    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
