1968 "vette"

I sure would like to get a wiring diagram of a 68 Corvette Convertible With a 327 and 4 speed. I'm having problems with windshield wipers, as it has a windsheild wipe door that has to open before the wipers move. This car has a new wiper motor and wiring harness undre the dash and switch. Help TIA

The wiper door runs on vacuum. Be sure all the lines are hooked up and there are no leaks.

If you want a schematic you might as well get the chassis service manual.

Ebay has original manuals cheap. These are the ones available at the dealer and they have good schematics.

Heres a link but the auction is closing soon http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1968-...spagenameZWDVW

Cant go wrong here. There are many more on the bay.

By the service manual, it come with everything. You need the assembly manual, service manual, and it has all the electrical schematics.

That's nearly impossible. To work on your car 99.9% of the time means spending money (parts, tools, etc.). But if you can pull that off, my hat's off to you!

Doc's diagram is great for your particular purpose but if you need a complete diagram for your vette go here and just click your way through to the wiring diagram (which is part of the repair manual).
