68 ignition switch mounting

1353 Views 7 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Greg P
Is there a metal plate behind the dash that the ignition switch goes through? When I purchased the car the dash was all pulled apart and the ignition switch was just hanging. I am trying to piece this all together and put it back together correctly. Any advice or pictures would be greatly appreciated.

Here is a link to both sides. Ignition and headlight side. Both must be used and grounded to the main gauge cluster plus a wire is needed from that mounting points to the emergency brake with a small screw with a round spayed connector. If you do not do all you will have a bunch of stuff screwing up if working at all

Good catch Greg. This is the part number 817042 showing on the link I provided that Greg is showing going from the headlight reinforcing plate to the gauge cluster. Like I stated there is an additional ground wire that runs from there to the ebrake housing that is grounded to the car itself.
