I cant seem to wire things so the key switch will give power to the coils,the head lite portion works fine,hi&low&tail work as they should,solid red wire to mag post but engine not started yet.no life in the blue|yellow tracer.witch wire needs to be hot when the key is turned the battery,this t is new to me,its been looked over and is ready to go except the wireing.I can jump from pos battery to coils turn engine and they all sound off.I can fire it up in this way BUT!I would like to find whats not hooked up correct.Ive looked over the wireing diagrams till i'm blue in the face,tried 2or3 and no luck.one shows yellow tracer one place in another plan its in another.is there a correct diagram large enough to be helpfull?my 80 year old eyes are not bad but some diagrams are very small in the books.thank you very much for the help GREG.
The Ford diagrams are terrible. Get one of the ones available from Langs. Also, good ones are posted on the forum occasionally.
Since you have a '21, try this one. You can blow up the view on the screen by holding down the CTRL key and scrolling with the thumbwheel on your mouse.
... and return to normal viewing after with CTRL-0 (that's zero)
thank you Garnet--Larry--Mark,the diagram posted IS a bit different,in that on the terminal block it shows the red wire in a different place than the others do,also, the terminals on the back of the key switch seem to be different than the one on my t, I will remove the switch assy this after noon and compare.but so far I still have no idea what wire feeds the battery side of the key switch.for starting the engine, then switch to mag for running.I will give Steve a jingle and get there diagram. that's where the wires came from. thanks again.GREG
It has been my experience that there is no ground wire on any switch that I have worked on !!!!
Don't be surprised if there is none. JMHO
It's the yellow wire through the ammeter.
I may be closer to not solving my wireing problem,rob wolf posted a wireing situation in 2008 on tuesday, grrrrrrrrr, that switch is the same as in my ford.the wires are not at all like the the one in the diagram that Mark posted for me. I'm going to call Steve at Langs and get there diagram. thank you all for your good help.Greg.
The wiring diagrams at Texas T Parts are really good.
I used theirs to completely rewire my 24 Touring. It's flawless now.
I believe this one is correct.
