I was able to install the headlight wiring harness with the help of a good friend and fellow MTFCA member.
I now want to tackle the passenger side headlight/commutator harness.
Looks like tight quarters.
Any tips or advice?
Just follow the pictures on the diagrams.

Remove the timer.
Attach the wires to the timer and then reinstall the timer on the timing gear cover.
Thank you Erik.
That's what i was wondering and should've been more clear in my post.
I wasn't sure how to get in that tight space with my fat 10 thumbs fingers.
It's not that hard. Just take your time. I've completely rewired two cars in about half hour or so each.
The easiest way to do it is have a friend do the work.
The second easiest way to do the wiring is to remove the radiator.
The third is to remove the timer.
The fourth is to do it in place
I donít do #1 because it would cost me too much beer.
Attaching the wires on #2 is easy but removing the radiator is not easy.
Like you my fingers are big (also my eyesight is poor) so #4 is out.
That leaves #3. Just make sure that there is enough slop in the wires to allow the timer to move.
Once you disconnect the rod and loosen the clip and, you should be able to very easily remove the timer and bring past the radiator and out of the engine compartment so it will be out in the open. You can lay it on the hood shelf if need be.
I do have plenty of beer at this time, but will try Erik and Fred's #3.
If anyone wants to watch me, you can have a couple of beers.
