Hi there.

I distilled a 62 to 65 wiring diagram from the JBugs and Clymer diagrams.

* Added wire gages
* Added some things like high/low beam relais,
* Added an optional clamp 15 relais
* Added carb cut off valve.

I'd be happy if some of you could please proof read it and give me some feedback for improvements. Commas and dots in wire gauges are mixed, I just noticed.

I think the only think I noticed that needed correction was the 'relais'. It should be spelled 'relay'. Relays would be plural but since the diagram is calling out each individual relay its just 'relay'.

Great job, by the way.

Thanks or the feedback!

* Fixed the Typo
* Clearly marked as beta version
* Added a legend below the heading for gauge units and clamp/terminal info
* Disabled web server caching of pdf files so you always get the current version
* Added wiper motor clamp numbers

And now it's official:

Very nice job! It looks to me based on the right vs left and front to back you have spark plug #2 and #3 transposed.

Would change "Generator Charging Warning Light"

to "Generator Charging & Engine Cooling Warning Light".

A generator should have a regulator shown.

Battery ground strap goes to the body, not engine. Ghia goes directly to the engine.

Starter solenoid would be good to list.

Looks great!

Only other thing that I can think of to be updated is to show the chassi to transaxle ground strap. Mayhaps it could be squeezed in between the starter and battery.

Might be that it would be a bit clearer to newer folk if #1 & 2 spark plugs were on the other side (upper of diagram) of the distributor.

Release 10: Added ground strap #2. Might change the spark plug and distributor arrangement tomorrow.

Release 11: Changed position of distributor, spark plugs and stuff.

Hope I didn't introduce new bugs features.
