    Keep you head up, you can do this....Yes it helps to have some talent for the task, but if you never played with it, does not mean you can not do it, just you have not tried yet.

    My point I owned a bug as my first car, so had another or two over the years, a Trike NOT, a crotch rocket yes, but kept it factory serviced and so I knew how to ride.....

    I have done a lot to this trike I did not expect nor did I think I could do it.

    Remember to take the time and draw out a schematic of the wiring you did, if you sell it goes with the trike, if you keep it than you have a way to work on what you did. If that is not your cup of tea, maybe some one can help you.

    A new Adventure, enjoy it.

    Completed full identification of all circuits . Put everything in to auto cad. Took lots of photos. To add to my Trike Documentation File. Will start tomorrow to figure out all the custom extras that I will add to the Trike wiring. Full wiring clean up will begin on Saturday. Body is heading out tonight for full polishing and buffing.

    Sounds like all is moving forward at a steady pace. I hope to get back to it this afternoon, but glad to read all is working in your favor.

    My 1972 WilMac Kit on a 66 vw motor and a unknown vw van rear end

    had TWO fuses TOTAL. LOL

    If I would have kept it, the last of the old vw mechanics suggested a complete

    rewire job.
    The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
    But I have promises to keep,
    And miles to go before I sleep,
    And miles to go before I sleep.

    Sound like you have it handled. Excellent job.

    Lots of folks start out with a universal dune buggy harness and fuse box. The only big benefit is having a big rainbow of colors. Sure makes it easier to keep up with which wire does what.

    Mine is a jumbled up mess of ford parts hooked to Chevy parts hooked to Kawasaki parts hooked to vw parts and on and on.....so color this hooked to other color that....to no end it seems.

    Here is an electrical question for you Volkswagen techs. My generator wiring is mixed up. No surprise LOL. Here is what I have. Generator Df hooked to Regulator D+, Generator D+ hooked to Regulator Df and Fuse Panel, Regulator 61 hooked to Amp Meter and Regulator B+ to Battery. Everything runs and Battery Charges?? I know that I have unregulated Power. By rights I should be able to change everything back to what it is supposed to be (Df to Df, D+ to D+ and connect fuse panel to B+) and everything work correctly with regulated 12v to the Battery and Fuse Panel. Should the generator even be woking correctly wired backwards?

    Hummm, looked at mine and I do not have a regulator wired into any of it.

    It all starts and works, so I thought, but know I might have an answer to why some gauges act a bit off. Looks like I have another project/issue to resolve before spring time comes.

    The generator only knows current paths. If it has those, it will gen. Wired backward, it won't work correctly. My guess is it would generate a runaway voltage until it overheats.

    Andy, do you have a generator or an alternator? More recent alternators have the regulator mounted on the back of the alternator. They do need an exciter wire from the idiot light but otherwise they only need a battery to charge.

    As far as your gauges go, the most likely culprit is a bad ground. A close second would be corroded terminals. Either way, you do have another project/issue to resolve.
