I was only trying to add to the fact that, the factory didn't mention it (tape) for installing the turn signals in there instruction sheets. I found the 68550-50B and a 87082-58, assembling 1957 and earlier sidecar instructions in a 1959 Riders handbook.

Thanks Panman
I know what you mean looking at the parts list.

Tony is correct, the only reference to tape in the instruction sheet that came with the 68550-65B direction signal kit is for insulating the end of the wire which is disconnected from terminal #20. The complete instruction sheet is available for download in our Knowledge Base at:
http://www.hydra-glide.com/manual/direc ... ctions.pdf

The -65B Kit was designed for installation on ElectraGlides but it included instructions for retrofitting it to both DuoGlide and HydraGlide models. The interesting thing is that installation for all 3 models provided instructions for rear lamps which were mounted on the rear fender, NOT on the saddle.

James, the factory must have thought that there was room under the seat T-bar hinge for the asphalt wire loom because the instructions tell you how to do it, look on page 2 of the instructions in the section for installing rear direction lamp cable.

We're still looking for a similar factory instruction sheet for the accessory running lamps mounted under the saddle. ANYBODY?

Not to re-hash an old subject. Was wandering if the '56 factory photo is a Prototype? I noticed that in Bruce Palmer's book, page 610, he makes note that the 1956 Police FLE, " Note the routing of the radio's speaker cable. It is TAPED twice to the speedometer cable, runs up behind the voltage regulator, and is belted twice to the frame by the battery. Another photo of the factory using tape.

Just a thought, Tony.
