1960 generator lamp wire for 3 wire alt
I'm trying to tie into the generator idiot lamp on my 60 burb. I have a diagram for 63, 64 and one that says 60-64. All show the generator lamp has two wires, pink and brown. I'm guessing I'm guessing into brown wire, but here is where it gets odd.
If I ohm the wires to trace it, I get continuity when I seemingly connect the ohm meter to the spot on the harness for the temp light and the back of bulb that's in the generator spot.
My temp isn't a light but a gauge. Any idea here?
The 60-64 all inclusive diagram shows brown wire going to headlight switch AND a label that says '***** dash only'.
I've found the wire in the plug that 'should' be to what I think is generator goes to fuel gauge. I'll worry about fuel gauge later....
Obviously this wiring is a mess, even though some seems to be in original looms. I've also noticed if I ohm the wire that goes to the generator light(brown wire), to the panel, most of those ohm across. It's that ok our not?

And here is the light cluster with the charging light (Gen tell tale).
All those pink wires are power wires which are common to your ohm meter continuity.
