Wiring

Hi, All
Where can threads be found/followed for wiring accessories?
Intersted in the how to's like, where to and from hot wires, relays, and regrets of wrong ways this was done.
Would like to do it right the first time and yes all options for this are open though someone's experience would help a lot.
looking at installing ..winch, front bulbar lights, radio , extra heater fan, and some extra thing as this is done undetermined yet.
I am a novice in wiring big time and really not going to pay by the hour to have this done and would rather do it myself in case something happens a better idea what or where to look.

That is a pretty general question.

Why don't you try a very specific question. Like a particular model of Land Rover and the accessory you want to add to the wiring. Narrow it down and you might get the answers you are looking for.

Please let me tack on a pet peeve that I have.

You could live 2 blocks from a board member who is the "Lord or Rewiring" yet he may or may not chime in. Electrical issues are hard to diagnose via the internet and harder to fix via the keyboard. Check out the locations of the active board members, they are pretty specific. This board is pretty unique, it's more of a brotherhood than anything else and brothers usually help out brothers in need.

This other site is living proof of the actual Rover brotherhood and yes, my location and phone number is listed on this one.

If your truck is a 1974 then its a Series 3, not a Defender. Have a pic of the truck you can post up? If its a Series then the radiator will be indented and the gearbox should be 4 gears.

Can't figure out how to link a photo
live in Northern Illinois & yes I have a 110 & 88 both military versions
Where I'm lost is where to start all or one positive to the/a switch or row of switches
All threads read have nice n tidy looking rows though none talk of where they start the positive leads from , new or splitting into a line

Reason for asking, is the 88 has enough tied into/on the positive lead on the altenator, really don't care for this way.
Have found and lost a bolck style for positive leads on line in trying to figure this out

Best to come right off the fuse block. Split into a wire that has power when the key is in the ON position. Best to tie a new junction block into the wiring at the fuse block area, for wiring to the switches. Like the attached picture of an add on fuse block. or use one of the fuses that is not being used in the factory fuse block.

You can come from the fuse block to the switches. And you can go from the switches to the area where your battery is. There you can use relays to come from the battery through a fused junction to the relay and then on to the lights, for instance.

The alternator lead is not a good idea to pull power from.

Why not just describe in depth what you are planning to do here. Before you actually start the wiring process. You can get some constructive criticism here.

Draw out your own diagram and post it here. It will save a lot of time and be worth the effort to learn how to post pictures here.

Good Luck

Thank you for ideas, pretty much trying to avoid a wiring rats nest.
All I'd like to add are a few simple things like above. Not looking to over do it just keep it as simple as possible, it will be a daily driver.
Thank you for "junction block" didn't know how to refer to one in search......that helped a lot!!!
Don't suppose anyone know the wording for the relay block?
