  • Dome light

    A friend is restoring a 31 S/W town Sedan and wants to know how to run the wire from the door post switch forward. Dose it run along the right side roof line and then down to the terminal box on the firewall?

    Ed take a look at page 2-15 in the RG & JS.. It eventually runs with the cowl light wire to the junction box
    3 ~ Tudor's

    I've seen an unrestored 160B with headliner removed. From my notes, the wire from the dome light passes over to the passenger side, then forward and thru holes in the roof metal u shaped brace above the quarter window rear, back behind the open waffle looking tacking area over to the switch , then up and across the roof center area and forward thru holes in the 2 roof bows midway between the visor tacking blocks, then forward towards the header and down the left drivers side A pillar and then via a special firewall clip to the j box. Sorry no photos were taken at the time. This was an early SW non- firewall indented car.

        I thought it went down the center also. My biggest mistake when I restored my 160B 9 years ago was that I did not take pictures during the restoration. My friend said there are no holes in his existing wood bows. Now I wonder if there is another difference between the Briggs and Murray bodies.
        Grover is your car a Murry or brisss?

          I believe it is a Briggs but doubt if it makes a difference in the wire routing.

        Mitch, I think that drawing on page 291 is for a 1928-29 style Fordor body.

          If you have some left over chicken wire from your roof these look very cool.

          Cowl lights wire routings
          by Farmputzer
          I have a 30 Murray town sedan. The main wire loom has the 7" long wire coming off of the light switch on the steering column. How was the cowl light crossover wire originally routed from there to inside the firewall?

          29 Tudor electrical wire routing
          by fred93
          I need to see some pictures or drawings of how the wires are routed for a 29 Tudor. It has cowl lights. I have attached some pictures that I took before disassembly but they do not seem correct.

          I am installing an electric wiper motor that was missing on my 1930 town sedan and need to know the proper routing of the wire in the engine compartment, a photo would help. What clamps to use and where they should be located

          Cowl light wire bracket
          by Art Ebeling
          Can someone post a picture of how the cowl light brackets attach on each side of the cowl on a 31? The center one in the middle at the upper corner of the terminal box is easy but I don't see how the other two attach. If they attach to the screw holding the cowl webbing that screw is into a cage nut so what holds the bracket? Thanks, Art

          Turn Signal Review & Installation Info on different styles
          by Tom Wesenberg
          I just installed this turn signal kit on a friend's car, and was impressed with the quality of the unit and the instructions, which were very clear and easy to follow. A third brake light (BrakeLighter) and right taillight were already installed on the car, so that also helped. I removed the Brakelighter power wire terminal, which contained the 2 wires for both sides of the third brake light, and...

          I just tuned my Model A last nite and the engine sounded good. Today, it would not start. It turned over good and the battery was strong. I opened the hood and the wire from the starter into the metal channel up to the terminal box had burned thru just 3 inches from the starter switch. I removed all wires from the terminal box and pulled the wire out of the metal channel and all of the insulation...
