Where do I get wiring diagram / "how-to's" for a 67 Lemans?

I just bought a 67 lemans to mess around with, I know how to do all the engine work and such that will be necessary but for some reason I've never done any auto wiring in my life.
The car's wiring is dangling in the engine bay and under the dash. It looks like that guy who had it before me tried to wire it and got about halfway done and quit.
As far as I can tell all the necessary electrical parts are there, it's just a matter of connecting the right things together.
Anyway, my question is where can I get a decent wiring diagram for this 67 pontiac lemans? Any other links / info on the subject that anyone can give would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Your best bet would be to try to find a factory repair manual for your car. Might find one at a swap meet or through a magazine like Hemmings. Someone here might have a diagram that they could scan and email you.


You should try to get a manual anyways, they are invaluable.

Wiring

Most modern wiring harnesses have wires that are labeled every few inches as to where they go. If they aren't labeled, and it looks like a "new" wiring harness to the car, try to find out what kind it is and contact the manufacturer.

You can sometimes find wiring diagrams on E-bay for sale pretty cheap. If you have never done wiring work before it may not make a lot of sense to you. Most aren't color coded. I did see some company color coding their wiring diagrams, but I can't remember where I seen that now. They may be on E-bay too. Still, it's no guarantee it will match your color of wires to the color that is on the diagram.

Personally, if it was me, and the wires weren't labeled, I wouldn't trust what the guy before me did and just get a new modern wiring harness that has labeled wires and has other forms of support from the manufacturer. Unless you feel you really NEED a harness that looks like an original, most are reasonably priced.

If you absolutely have to have a "clone" of your original wiring harness, get ready to fork over the big bucks and go to M&H wiring harnesses. Otherwise, check out Painless, Haywire, Centech, American Autowire, and others.

i agree, i think haynes is better than chiltons, but I can't seem to find either for my car. I think you can get a factory service manual from ames performance... would this have pretty much the same information as a haynes manual?
