Need help wiring my dash clock while people on another site fight about how to do it. I have a 1947 Chrysler Windsor that is 6 volt positive ground. Just bought a dash clock that has two terminals on the back marked positive and negative. Once I bolt it to the dash, since it's positive ground, have I taken care of the positive side of the circuit? Now I have to run a fused wire from the negative terminal of the clock to a part of the ignition switch that is always "hot"? Thanks in advance and hope a fight doesn't break out on this site, I might have to wear a wristwatch. Wayne

First see if the (+) terminal on the clock is common with the metal case. If not, a ground will have to be run from the (+) terminal to the body.
Some aftermarket clocks are 'universal' and will have a case that is electrically isolated from the body so it can be used in both (+) or (-) applications.
I have run a clock (-) terminal to the cigar lighter circuit (which is fused battery power all the time).
