Does anyone make the correct length harness that goes from the terminal strip to the switch? I will live with what I have, but seem the one size fits all that has been around for years is too long for most cars out there. I think they used the closed car as a sample so is much longer then needed for the majority of open cars being restored or re-wired. Just wondering.
That is because the people that make the harnesses don't research what they are doing! I have the correct harness, with the Ford script tag in it in my 25. I had it custom made by a harness company out here in Redlands, California. They do beautiful work, but are two times more expensive than the catalogs. They made it from an original I have.
Mark, I just recently bought all the wiring harnesses from Langs for my 24 touring and they are beautiful. The switch to terminal harness seems right length to me but im no expert. I think the company making them now has it right. And Larry, I took all those little script tags off my old harnesses and just slipped them into the cloth covering on each harness. It is a nice little touch Doug
The open cars use a shorter harness. The closed cars are longer.
Doug you will know for sure when you install it!
Hope someone at this point is making them right.
I got both the lighting harness and switch harness new from Lang's for my 1927 speedster (which uses a 1927 cowl, so think of it as a roadster). The switch wiring harness is an okay length. A bit too long but nothing hanging far below the dash. The lighting harness, however... Is a bit too long at the area right below the terminal where all the wires are bundled together.
I did install it, it looks fine to me
Doug, good to know.
