Basic Hot Rod Wiring
- I added an ammeter in series, a lot of people are confused where to wire it.
- I upped the headlight wiring because they draw a lot of amps and 14 gauge is felt to be to small.
- And lastly, I corrected the horn wiring. The fuse to relay to horn wires should be heavier then the switch to relay wire. He had them backwards on the original diagram. Click the picture to enlarge.
This was designed for 12V systems, but can be used for 6V also. If used for 6V, make all the wires heavier by 2. For example 14 gauge wire will become 12 gauge, 10 gauge will be 8 gauge, etc.
Update, Sept 27: This posting is by far the most popular of my posting. Obviously there is a need for this info. Another Note: you can drag the drawing to your desktop folder to save it or print it.
