Turn signal wiring

I need some help with wiring in my turn signals. I am working on a 1958 chevy apache. I have what I believe to be a 1967 gm tilt steering column in it. I believe that it is a 67 only because there is a number on the harness
"Delco Remy D-8-67"

I have found a wire indicator diagram for it already so I have a good idea what the wires are. What I need help with is where do I connect the wires from the column on out to the flasher and lights?

Re: Turn signal wiring

Delco Remy D-8-67 doesn't mean its a 67. If the connector is curved it could be if its flat its a later model

Re: Turn signal wiring

You should be able to buy a pigtail that goes from flat to the curved.

Re: Turn signal wiring

I am starting from scratch. There isn't any other connectors or flashers. I have the wires from the lights and the connector on the steering column from a unknown gm donor car(it was already in the truck). All of the wires were removed from the vehicle.

I have made my own wiring harness for the headlights and tail lights.

Re: Turn signal wiring

download the pdf instructions from painless it will give you all the wire color codes and show you where to connect what wire
that is a newer connector and is compatible with a new wiring harness a 67 connector would be curved as mentioned

Re: Turn signal wiring

I agree with Ogre, the instructions from painless or another wiring mfg should give you the info.

Here are two diagrams but the color coding may be off.


I think this one is drawn upside down to the photo .


I was thinking that GM went to the flat connectors in 69 but they may have done it earlier.

I think you can buy the pigtail that connects to that plug at most parts houses or you could cut it out of a car at the wrecking yard and save as much of the wire on it as you can. That would let you be able to unplug the harness if you ever needed to.

Re: Turn signal wiring

Here is the diagram I put together to figure out my 82 ELDO column vs. the EZ wire harness. It shows the GM pin designation, GM color and ez wire color. I checked and the pin configuration is same as yours. It also shows the column key ingnition circuits and othe circuits on the column.

Re: Turn signal wiring

Chevy trucks used the curved connectors through 1972
