6 Volt Wiring Harness

OK, so I always come here first for advice....

I know that MOST of you have switched to 12 volt... BUTT I want to stay 6V stock... I'm not a purist, but that's my general rule.

SO, does anyone have experience or can recommend a good source for a wiring harness.????

1953 6V Positive ground, flathead 8....

Thanks in advance.

Yeah.... it figures.....
Do you have the same problem?
A 12v harness is $260...
A 6V harness.... wait for it.....
$500....

I got mine from MidFifty for my 54 F-100. I kept it 6 volt pos ground and it works great!!!

MAke sure you use 1gauge or 0 gauge cables for your battery to starter and battery to ground cables...

I got my 6V harness about 4 mo ago from Mac's......$240, (dash and underhood) made in USA too. I'm very happy with it....fit perfect, great quality. I ran my own light wires, they are pretty simple. Don't forget lots of ground straps!

Another tip:
Don't rip out the old one totally and then try to put in the new one. Take out the old one a little bit and then put in the new one, take out a little more of the old one and add in the new one and so on. That way you will be able to see and remember where what wire goes where....

Abe...
THANKS for the advice......

However, I ripped every last worn, brittle, broken, wire out about 4 years ago when I took Mater down to the frame....
So it's been four short years since I even saw any wires.

It did strike me as odd how Mr. Ford ran the wire for the heater blower. Butt it IS a 58 year old truck after all...............

Now where exactly did I put that light switch four years ago?

Let the fun continue.
