there should be switched power to the ignition and the starter soliniod. the charge gauge for the generator should be on its own circut. the only other wire should go to the radio & the regulator to shut off the field. I'll see if I still have a diagram

I have a '49 Chevy sitting in my garage. When I get home tonight I can look at what goes where (maybe) and let you know. I can tell you, these are pretty simple as far as wiring goes, not a lot there.

Let me know if you need this.

Sorry, just got done with the lift and brakes on MudnYJ's heep. Little late and dark to try to figure the pics out. Will look at it as soon as I get home from work.

Also, try this for help.

These guys should have what you need right on their computers somewhere. Hope this helps, if not, I will take photos on Monday evening.
