Saw you had been waiting a while--you sorta have a Uncommon Question, I might can help. I have figured many things out that seemed almost impossible to me at the time. I am not a paid mechanic, I do my thing, out of necessity! I am a "Real" Jeep Kinda Guy, never owned nothing but CJs since I began driving on the road in 1981. I've had 7 Jeeps, the last 2 (I presently have) have been revived from scratch, the Willys began as a frame/ engine/ tranny/ transfer case/ and 2 axles. NOTHING ELSE, I wired it, referencing 3 different Jeep Diagrams, as I sorta updated much of the simple 1946 wiring, to more modern standards! Did Him, all by myself! I may can talk you thru figuring out what goes to where. Here's some questions for you, answer honestly, so I will know how to talk you thru this stuff. Is the switch installed in the dash or on the column. I do not know a lot about the cockpit of a Torino, but I feel we can find the positions. Are you "Stuck" on using this particular switch? Do you have the wires located, just need to know where to put 'em.1) Do you know how to do a continuity test w/ a voltmeter? 2) Do you have a voltmeter (you can get a cheap digital one for less than $10 at a parts store/ nice to have regardless)? 3) is it possible for you to send pics and different views of your switch? (I can modify them to show you how and what to do). WANT TO USE A SIMPLER SWITCH (as seen on left side of "Willy's" steering column?). ARE YOU GAME for any of this. Your Turn. The Medic. These are pics of "WILLY" my 1946 Willys Jeep with a Flathead L-4 134 CID engine, now a 12 Volt system, Turn signals and much more that was not original to this model
Please consider a to help us answer more questions.
