Well mine might not be the best example to go by... I did not do a 100% restore like your doing.

However that said I still have a foot starter to press and crank motor. That's obviously the red cable.

The black (ground) on mine goes to the block from the battery post.

Now I would measure that for you BUT my truck ain't here to measure.

I got it on display at a dodge dealership locally.

I should get it back in a few weeks if you ain't figured it out by then

window side glass and windshield assembly installed yesterday... the drivers side fits nice, rolls up and down on the NOS regulators beautifully, but the passender side is a tad too tight. not sure whats causing it. tried adjusting, but without success... I guess Ill try taking it apart again and see if I don't have the window channel perhaps crooked or sticking out a tab making the tight fit?

windshield assembly is another animal.. I am working on adjusting it.. a little here, a little there and its fitting a bit better each time, but still a little to snug to close easily.. still, I am making progress
Dave,
What thickness of glass setting tape did you use for your windows? Same for all, ow different between front, side and rear?

Thanks

Andy,
I wold recommend starting a separate topic in the Power Wagon section of this forum. You will get much help as many of us can attest. When you post it, be more specific with regards to what spare parts you need as that will drive the answers better. for now I would recommend Vintage Power Wagons or Midwest Military. There are many great forum members who have spare parts, so start a new topic and give a short list of what you need.
