Transmission/Shift wiring harness was created by eaj564
Hi All, I am putting together a 36 Phaeton that was completely gutted by someone else. I no pics of the routing for this harness after it leaves the bottom of the steering column tube. Does it drop down between the frame rails then come out the upper or lower hole behind the master cylinder? Then follow the inside of the frame, above or below the left side axle shaft, and cross over to the passenger side of the car? Added a pic of the car S/N 2243 H. Owned by Jim Arneson. Thanks Eric

Jim, it runs along the top of the frame on our car and just the red wire loops back to the clutch switch. I will try to get some pictures. Your underside looks very nice.

It was hard to get decent pictures, but the shot down the firewall shows you how it feeds through the frame. On the other side the red wire cuts over to the clutch switch and then the harness moves to the top of the frame and then over the top of the front axle. In the front, it runs just inside the radiator.

Thank you for the pics, and info. As you just put in the same harness that I am trying to get right, did you solder the switch to 12" of wire hanging out of the the column? and so if you pulled the excess back to the engine where did you put it? I hooked up the red wire to the clutch switch and do not think it is long enough to move 8 inches in either direction. Not with the car now but will be Monday. Not mine but have been trying to put it together for 3 years as time allows. If interested I can share more pics of this project. Thank you Eric

I used the one piece harness and the fake plug so the wire ends up with maybe 2 or 3 inches of slack all the way up at the interlock switch which you can pull back around the solenoids.

Honestly, I could not imagine having to solder the plug end on at the bottom of the steering column.

On my Westchester, from the 10 plug connector, I ran it along the firewall to the passenger side, and then down the rail to the solenoid area. You can run it down the driver’s side also, but it gets very busy in there with the steering box etc. I have seen it done both ways. Maybe that depended on who was on the line that day?
