I'm restoring a 1927 Roadster Pickup and need some help. Looking for a schematic showing the proper routing of all the wires including the tail light that has the spring to hold tail light wire. The truck will be commercial green with wire wheels, what colors can the wire wheels be and still be correct for year? Thank You

Tail light wiring on a 26/27 was discussed in this thread: http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/331880/389749.html?1379689859

Here's a wiring scheme showing the spring that holds tension in the tail light wire:

Sss


There is a book available from the vendors: "Service bulletin essentials" that has lots of this kind of info :-)

Here's from the encyclopedia on the wire wheel colors:
http://www.mtfca.com/encyclo/1926-27H.htm

"WIRE WHEEL COLORS
Enamels
Casino Red, Emerald Green and Straw
Pyroxylin
Casino Red, Emerald Green, Straw, Drake Green and Black
Note: While not listed under the enamels, Black was the standard wire wheel color. The other colors were optional and often dealer-installed."

Enamels were used during 1926 model year, while Pyroxylin was used during the 1927 model year, starting some time during the autumn of 1926.
