    Connect the other Plug #2 to the positive voltage output on your alternator, and plug #1 to the alternator switch wire (if you still use the stock Deuce alternator). On the passenger-side headlight, while looking at the back of the headlight housing, plug #17 will mount to the top left connector (10 o'clock position), the #18 wire will mount to the top right connector (2 o'clock position), and the bottom connector is a ground (ground to frame rail). Both #25 plugs will go into the horn solenoid switch.

    Now route the final branch of the harness through the grommet hole in the frame rail below the radiator (as shown in Photo 6 above), through the fender support bracket, and to the box inside the fender for the turn signal lights (#460 Right Turn, #491 Parking Lights, #20 BO) just as you did on the driver's side.

    Once all the branches & plugs are in place, you can start connecting the wire clamps. Don't install these until your entire harness is done, otherwise you might have to remove the clamps to shift the harness around for clearance.

    As a final step, connect your battery cable (the one coming from the batteries) to the top (positive) post on the starter solenoid, and connect the battery cable to the batteries.

    No THANK YOU for the photos! Seeing is much easier than trying to decipher written instructions. But together I think we pretty much nailed it down.

    Great pics!

    I made some errors in my previous posting #10; these have been corrected. I also posted some photos from my Crackberry phone of the starter & solenoid to explain where all the wires go.

    Default Signal switch harness

    I have been having a problem with my signals - sometimes they work, most time they don't. The wires are in bad shape coming thru the firewall to the switch. One was totally bare of insulation. I tried to tape over the bare wires, but it didn't help. Is there any way of fixing just that section of the harness? Can just the plug be rewired? Thanks!
    I am going to look at the pictures & description you did to see if it helps me. Thanks for all the work you did to post it!

    Lord have Mercy! I have my work cut out for me . Is there maybe numbers on the wire them selves? Some of the tags are missing too. guess I'll have to cut the whole harness open to follow them out. Will post some pictures in the morning
