Default 3.O CS Wiring diagram

Would anyone be willing to make a high quality photo copy of this wiring diagram? Every one that I can lay my hands on is unreadable. I guess another alternative is a very high resolution scan that I could print out. Others have sent some scans but they lack the resolution necessary for me to read.

My car is a '73, produced in April of '73. US model, manual transmission.

BTW, I was at Carlisle las weekend and met Doug, the producers of Prospero's Garage Wiring Diagrams. What a great guy. He has done everything possible to attempt to help me, inlcuding sending 4 of hsi diagrams home with me, but none of them works with my car.

Thanks in advance,

jim

Default Wiring Diagram

Jim,

I thought the Blue Book has the right diagram. I made a copy of one and then enlarged it several times and taped it all together. I have a May `73 car and the US cars have the extra window relays and circuit breakers which makes them a little more complex.

I picked up the one below off of eBay. Quality is OK, but not all of the relay terminals are labeled.

These are the diagrams to which I referred in my first post. Great diagrams, just not accurate for my car.

MY VIN number indicates an early 1973 US version, but there are several parts that suggest its a later '73 version like yours. For example, all of my window motors have the black plastic casing rather than the "sardine can" type. They have have been upgraded at some point, but the point of me mentioning this is that you may have to verify what you find in the Blue Books with what is physically in your car just to be certain.

I agree, the laminated Prospero wiring diagram is great to keep in the shop, tacked above your workbench for quick reference, but I agree, there are subtle differences between Prospero and the Blue Books.

I could email you a scanned copy of the blue book diagram, but don't have the capacity to enlarge it. PM me if you don't receive it from HBChris.
