Default Need wiring diagram

Guys i need a good, clear and precise wiring diagram for me t-bucket. I bought a wiring harness and the schematic that came with it is extremely vague and of not much to use to me. I have a one wire GM alternator, 70's GM column, universal ign. switch and a universal 5 prong headlight switch. I will be installing a mechanical brake lights switch as well. Other than lights and gauges that is pretty much the bulk of it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I did search here and the internet but have not found what i am looking for as per my setup as i have listed.

Thanks

Another thing you could do is to draw your own schematic for the whole system, and scan it and let us look it over for you to see if we think it'll work, and suggest any changes you might need to make. It's easier to change stuff on paper before you start cutting wires

A wiring harness can be overkill.

Frame,body, & engine negative ground (black)
1 wire alt. to bulkhead or batt.,one wire to lights, & one wire to ign. switch (red)

On the ign. switch everything is labled. Add fuses (for safety) on the red.

Oh yeah, don't use that 70's column, there's a lot of overkill there.

This is a basic idea & everything 12volt. Use a volt resistor if not a 12v ign. coil.

I know, I know, this is for a bike BUT it does show you how simple the drawing can be done! Wish this artist would do one for a Hot Rod!

OK guys, here is a drawing i did showing the items i have and one drawing showing the headlight switch i have. If someone could connect the "dots" for me or offer some advise based on this info i would really appreciate it. Sorry for the poor pics. My scanner is down right now. I just realized i forgot the alternator. It is a one wire GM.

Thanks

Here is my guess on the headlight switch. You can use an ohm meter to verify my guess. The single lead on the end is the input. The outputs on the right are for your tail lights and gauge lights. One of the terminals on the left are for a connection to your dimmer switch. I wired one like this a week ago and that is how it worked.

I know I had a wiring diagram like you need bookmarked to a site on the net but I can not seem to find it. I will look some more and if I find it, I will post.

Its for a t bucket, most t buckets don't have steering columns with turn signals built in. Custom relay box is just a box to hold your relays to power your turn signals. This is just a simple schematic with just the basics. No air, no stereo, no power windows, you know, its for a t bucket!!

I get it it's a basic "T".
I am interested in seeing this "box", do you make it or do you buy it? If you buy it , where?

Turn signal wiring

http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/s...d.php?t=124217

Yours should have the "New" color codes, possibly the wires are black with the other color as a stripe. Connect each of the four light wires to the bright filament on that light, connect the brake switch, connect a two wire flasher can to power from the fuse box (you did get a fuse box, right?)
