I'm not sure justwhere it is on a 61 but there is an "always hot" terminal (wired directly to the battery) on my 51 on the circuit board behind the headlight (terminal #10). The spots are wired to this terminal and controled by the toggle switches on their bodies. Hope this helps.

This diagram is for a 49 (think it came from someone on this forum). Might get you started...

terminal 11 is the better option if you are forgetful.

the spots will turn off and on with the headlamp.

-otherwise- terminal 10 will work fine too.

Thanks for the tip John. I have left one on (wired to #10) and drained the battery. The diagram is awesome pans4ever I haven't seen one just like it. A copy will be glued into my repair manual.
