Hoping someone out there has a picture or can do a drawing of the engine side of the firewall with all the cables and wire locations per original placement labled. Stock, Original is what I'm looking for. Just bought all the grommets and getting close to needing that info for prelim placement. Luckily I dont think there are a bunch of extra holes to fill, but would like to do that if needed before paint prep.

I don't know how or if it translates to the truck but I have pictures of my 38 car on the other computer. I'll have to post tomorrow since that computer is off for the rest of the day.

yes this helps a bunch, but a couple of missing things. Speedometer cable and electric to headlights and horn and also how they are routed along the fender. The heavy shielded wire to the coil is original design? my shop manual doesn't show any pic of that, are the terminals there? I know my six v coil was mounted wrong (upside down) but the terminals were on either side of the center coil, distributer wire like the 12v I will be using...so what's up with the coil?

The armored cable is called an electrolock. The correct coil will have a terminal under the cap that the ignition switch connects to. It was a method of preventing hot wiring the car. Let me see if I have a picture showing where the speedo cable penetrates the firewall.
Edit: I have a picture but not one good enough to do any good. The speedo cable and wiring to the front end pass through a grommet to the outside of the steering mast. Hopefully someone will have a good photo.
Edit2: I found one that shows it. Posted below.

Determining what is original is not an easy job. Just because it sells high dollar at Barrett-Jackson doesn't means it's truly 100%.
Just now found this link at Jim Carters'. Horn conduit..."get out of town", I didn't know that.
https://oldchevytrucks.com/blog/2020/01/1934-1937-chevrolet-horn-wire-conduit/

The electrical for the headlights would be from the dimmer switch on the floorboard.
The supply for the switch may follow the speedometer cable. I haven't found a picture yet.

Tiny, thanks for the explanation of the electrolock. The pic must be a sedan. the floorboard, toeboard and firewall penetrations are totally different.

to heck with Barrett-Jackson but I would put stock in the VCCA type opinions. I will not be at that level as I'm going 12v, plastic insulation wiring harness, fusebox with headlight relays and turn signal flasher, double tail lights, but would like to reuse the proper locations as much as possible. I did see the horn conduit while browsing Jim Carter before and my horn mount bolt did have the clip but no conduit.

Mine is a coupe. That's why I always preface with the statement that I don't know if what mine has will translate to a truck. Good luck with your project.
