61 Wiring

Anyone have a wiring diagram for a 1961 D100. Trying to reverse a turn signal hack job from the previous owner.

Thanks John. I need one that shows the turn signal switch wiring. Can't believe that this truck has no fuse block, time to re-wire with a fuse block. Any recommendations?

What do you specifically need off of the turn signal wiring?

I rewired my 51' Hudson. I went with a painless kit, a little expensive at 300 bucks, but does the job well.

I believe it has at least one breaker in the system on the light switch. better than fuses. kinda like aircraft. if you have a short the breaker will just click until you fix short.

after looking at diagram they might not have breakers. earlier dodge trucks all did. they are easy to ad in. napa stocks them in different amp ranges. they have 2 studs for wires. onlyh really need one on the light power source, the heater circuit and the charging system. I do seem to recall the wiper system has a breaker but will have to go look to make sure

I went and looked at my 61 today and it had a breaker on the headlight switch and the wipers switch but I forgot to look at the charging and heater circuit got distracted by phone call. I am guessing there is one on those circuits though. its just a more HD way of protection than fuses.
