Default 83 ramcharger brake lights dont work

83 ramcharger PO pulled wires out of column to rig the ignition and disabled turn signals and i think the brake lights are tied into it also, i plan on replacing the column when i have time was wondering if i could wire the brake light switch with a fused positiveon one side and straight to the brake light wire on the other

also was wondering which wire is the brake and which are the turn signals in the loom running to the rear lights

best thing to do would be find a under dash wiring harness. trying to fix someones hack job sucks. iv had a few and it always ends up bad and blowing fuseable links.

under dash is still good just the column wiring is torn into but the blinker lever flops around so i ll replace the column but i need brake lights till i get my check.
can i run a fused positive to one side of the brake light switch and connect the other side directly to the brake light wire that runs to the rear lights for a temporary fix and what size fuse would i use?
