I am looking for the internal wiring of the ignition switch for my 26 Tudor. I am wanting to do a function test, but the car is in pieces so I just want to know what terminals are switched to what terminals in the different switch positions.
See if this works for you, not my drawing, found elsewhere on the forum:
The connections are named on the back side of the switch.
This is a modern repro, but old originals are also marked.
What I am trying to find out is of the terminals
DIM, TAIL, MAG, COIL, BAT and Double BAT
is what terminals are connected internally in the positions
BAT, DIM, OFF, ON and MAG.
For instance I would assume that in DIM position that terminals BAT would be connected to terminal DIM to provide power to the lights.
I have drawings of newer car key switches and they sometimes provide a table that shows what is connected to what in the different positions. That way I can OHM out the switch and make sure it's good before buying a new one.
Look at the green and red color codes in the upper right hand corner of the picture I posted.
Mark, thats a drawing from Martin Vowell.
Yes it is, sorry Martin for not giving you credit in the first place.
For the improved T, Dykes Manual for 1929 offers the same electrical diagram on pages 1120, 1125, 1139C and 1139D.
I'll bet Dykes even spelt Continuity correctly
Thanks Tom, that is exactly what I was looking for.
