Hello 914ers,

I am wiring up my new headlights... I have been learning about the wiring diagram and was wondering if anyone had any pointers regarding my sitiuation.

The new lights are simple. stationary lights with just hi and low. They share a ground and have built in turn, parking and marker lights.

4 positive wires needed for each side.

Can anyone suggest which wires I should be using?

thank you

@ I don't know if this will help. Forgive all the crappy temporary crimp on disconnects I used to test, my harness was cut in the front. I hope to get it all cleaned up and spliced this weekend.
The heavy around 12 awg, white, yellow, and brown wires are the headlight.

The marker lights and the turnsignal are, black with white dashes, and grey with black dashes. The small brown ones are chassis common. All these wires are around 18awg.

The motor power is heavier red, the green with black dashes and a small grey wire into the weco connector, all three jump over from the drivers side motor to the passenger side motor.

Mine is a 76 so your wire colors might not match exactly.

I was going to start with "There's no need to cut the stock wires!" but i see it's already too late for that.

They do make simple pins that slide into the stock connectors to "piggy-bag" and branch wires without any cutting.
