Sorting out more wiring. This just can't be right. On my car, the green/black wires from the aux fuse panel are soldered directly into the red power wire. Is that how it is supposed to be? I can't see it going through the fuses twice, but man this is ugly.
Sorting this stuff out is going to make a man outta me.
Thanks

(with still more wires to figure out)

Right. It feeds the fuse block, correct?

Yes.

All the diagrams show the green/black window wires getting power from the red wire, but I don't know if its a direct connection?

If by "direct connection" you mean unfused from the battery, then yes, it is a direct connection.

There are no fuses (except the wire itself Smiler) for the wires to and from the ignition switch. The wire to the ignition coil and the wire to the starter relay's coil terminal do not have fuses. The rest of the wires leaving the ignition switch are unfused between the ignition switch and the fuse panel.

Yeah, I blew my "pink wire fuse" that goes to the coil. :-)
I emailed SoBill and he confirmed what I was seeing. The power for the Windows is spliced into the red wire. It then goes to the separate fuse panel for the windows and then off ...(to the switches I assume). The splice into the red wire just didn't look....right, but apparently is. So, I'll need to recreate that when I replace the red wire. There is another wire in there as well, blue I think, that I need to chase.

There are several blue wires going to the rear. The one that you may be looking at is a dark blue/black. This wire goes from the voltage regulator "I" terminal to the charge indicator light in the speedo.

Other blue wires going to the back (through the rocker panel) are:

Lt blue/black: tach signal wire
Lt blue: right turn signal
Lt blue/ black: left turn signal
Lt blue/ black: A/C condenser fan (and compressor, '71 only)

I thought this one went across the dash, but I have to go back and look tonight. Based on the green/black being correct, and this one with it, I'm going to guess it is correct as well.

This is quite a learning experience. Thanks for the help.

The unfused red wire from ignition to fuse panel, this is switched power, right?
The blue wire that is spliced in to the red along with green/black striped wire must be correct as it heads off into the bundle of wire that goes to the relay panel. Like the green one, it just looks strange.

There is another wire that looks suspect that I need to trace out. It is tapped into the fuse panel with the red wire, but then has an inline fuse.

Ok, I didn't realize that the blue wire was spliced to the red wire. That means that the blue wire is unfused.

What is the year and VIN of your car? The car in your avatar appears to be a '71.

On a '71 car, there is a blue wire that goes to the +12 volt contact of the manual fan relay. This should have been connected to the load side of the #9 fuse. The #9 fuse is unswitched.
