Honestly,if the '60 shop manual is the same as the '59, it does not include an entire wiring diagram for the truck.Rather,there are several partial diagrams,but there are gaps in what is shown/not shown.I bought a full-color diagram,about 13" x 18", plastic-laminated from a Ebay seller:

Classic Car Wiring . Com : Home of the original color laminated car wiring diagram 917 861-9131

Cost about 16.00,plus shipping.

My stock wiring is in place,with only a few additions/modifications:I set a marine -grade fuse panel,and have now have separate fuses for high beam;low beam;stereo;auxillary driving lights,aux.power outlet in camper shell,and utility light in camper shell.I have a 100 amp 1-wire,GM(horrors) alt,hope to soon change to a three-wire Ford alt.

The 1959 only has 2 fuses,(in stock form),plus a circuit breaker.The fuses are on the back of the headlight switch,the breaker is an integral part of the headlight switch.

I believe there are several fridge owners who've done extensive re-wires during restoration.Possibly Walston.If you are going to do a bit of modification,I recommend you buy one of the diagrams,and get their direct advice about after-market harnesses,etc.

Thanks for the link Ibuzzard, I have the manual but was also looking for another always good to have more than one reference

Maybe some one can help me i want to take apart the dash and i could of sworn there was a type of manual for that. not sure of what it was called.

i think it may of been a type of body book.

i may not even need a book
maybe some advice on what order to take stuff appart
my goal is to open the dash inspect all the wiring repair /clean up as need be

but also i want to take it off for a good painting and clean up

looks like theres 40 years of dust in some places!!!
