On a '24 Touring, does the headlight wiring all run down the passenger side by the generator and then split and go across at the bottom of the radiator.

Or...does the driver's side portion originate at the wiring junction block and go down to the driver's side headlight on that side of the car?

If so...what are these clips for? (I photographed them this morning on John Mays' survivor '25)

Don, cant answer your question. My 26 runs driver side and runs across bottom of radiator in those clip to pass side. Is the belt made from old tire? Very cool. Mine had a mans leather belt on it when I got it. The splicing tool came with it .

On a 24 the passenger side light is with the timer wires and generator wire. The drivers side is separate and goes on the drivers side. The clips on the radiator are for the light wires for a 26-27 that al light wires are an the generator side and cross over to the drivers side.

I can't find any of the vendors selling the wires that go from the junction block to the driver's side headlight.

Is this sold by any of them?

Don, the loom clips shown on the bottom of the radiator indicate a narrow core radiator. Your car may overheat in Texas. The new replacement radiators have the full width cores which work much more effectively.

I love your farm fit replacement fan belt. Perhaps the tread creates extra air turbulence to help with the cooling!!!!

I bought the complete car harness kit from Lang's, but the individual harness you're looking for for the driver's side is catalog number 5041, "lighting harness, original style."

https://www.modeltford.com/item/5041.aspx

It has the drivers side headlight wiring, mag to terminal block wire, battery wire from starter switch to terminal block and the tail light wire in one loom.

There are two separate looms for the headlights, which have many additional wires in them as well.
