Wow. That was just a guess of putting two and two together. J.W. told me the re-wirement story... see but he didn't even reveal who it was (that's respectful). I'd heard before that Linsday made harness groups. We separated, measured and labeled some in Vol.2. I thought his harnesses were all for earlier though - JD, VL.
Too bad though. Pre-wired & bulbed bases are a whole lot easier to work with. The pre-wired bases have lamp sockets that are pressed into place, by a method we won't be duplicating any time soon. Without pre-wired, you'll have to use those plastic lamp sockets; or send them to Perry Ruiter for OE sockets installed and he's already mentioned not wanting to "waste" his supply of socket assemblies on aftermarket dash bases. http://www.ruiter.ca/
. So, hello plastic sockets.
Nice camera work on the machines Johnny.
A 3-lite '62-67 style for (middle) neutral lamp (VT 39-0959).
The AM sockets are flaged directly onto the dash base, rather than using the (71182-47A
) washer to roll the standing collar (shown in OE dash below). [47-A o.d. was reduced to be able to fit 3 sockets across.]
The base of the AM socket makes contact with the bottom of the dash base.
This is an OE 2-lite base. One of the sockets removed with the (sacrificial) collar still intact. The collar has to be removed to install plastic sockets, which snap into the hole. Save the (71182-47) or (-47A) washer (on the top side, not shown) for an antiquer
. You won't be using it any more.
