Spotlight Switch harness

#1

Post by beachwv » Sat Sep 15, 2018 1:42 pm

Have a 1948 Pan and was wondering what type of harness loom (asphalt or braided cotton) was used for the handlebar mounted spotlight switch? Also wonder how the harness runs to mounting points on headlight bracket.

Braided, wiring diagram I could not find. Have one, but can't find.

The wiring cover on the external wires for a spotlight handlebar switch is asphalt loom, it follows the bars to the headlight mounting bracket where it connects to terminals for power and for the spotlights to connect.

I misread, thought he meant the actual wires, stand corrected.

After asking this question, I searched through the Palmer book and came up with this info.I have several oem switches with asphalt harnesses but none with the braided one.
