Hello Everyone,
I'm installing a glove box mounted clock in my '37 MD. I figured out which wires connect where as the original harness (what was left of it) was separate of the clock. (Using new wire to make all the connections)
My questions are.... is the power wire connected to the live side of the ignition switch, and should there be an inline fuse and what amp should that be ??
If there is a diagram available, that would be great to have a copy of it.

Since you have an electric clock it should be running all of the time, so you would connect the power to the hot side of the ignition switch. There should also be an inline fuse installed as well. As I remember, I believe that a 2 amp fuse is recommended.

From the 1939 clock written instructions.
Red clock wire goes to light switch battery terminal.This will provide the clock with constant power

Black wire to the light switch terminal for the tail lights. This will light the clock bulb any time the head lights were turned on.

White wire is gronud and attached to a screw in the metal of the dash.
