OK done steering wheel back...
OK done steering wheel back on. Thanks.
Working on wiring, please see the three photos attached , IMG2752 and 2754 this 2 wire harness comes out of the fire wall behind the shroud on the upper right hand side, don't know what they are for, a gray wire with blue and a brown wire. The next photo IMG2757 is the license plate light I don't know where it plugs in. And the last picture I guss is the oil pressure or sensor, don't know where the wire is for that. Do you have some answers? Thanks.

Thanks,
I'll be inside all day to help.

I've found a good diagram with connectors and locations listed and full color wiring. It's HERE and the legend with ID and location HERE

The oil pressure wire should be blue with a green stripe and run all the way up to the dash light

Hello, I am 99% sure this is for a rear window defrost relay. I'm trying to find the supporting wiring diagram for you .

Ask Your Own Classic Car Question
Classic Car Mechanic: K. Wiggins, Classic Car Mechanic replied 3 months ago

Here are the tech sheets on rear defrost. And here is seat belt interlock which is a definite non match.

Hi Wiggins, Thanks is this defroster is that some tat is in the glass or a heater on the outside of the glass but in the car. I don't see either?
Classic Car Mechanic: K. Wiggins, Classic Car Mechanic replied 3 months ago

It would be for the type that is in the glass. It is pretty common to find the wiring in them but not the relay or a defrost type rear window. This is done today on modern cars as well. They just finish them out to the build specifications and include the wiring even if it's not specced for it.
