The original link worked for me, but the new one asks for a username and password.
Nice work, by the way. Thank you for your efforts.

I have a few questions again.

What wire goes on what post for the regulator? I have D+, DF, etc...

My high beam switch is a 3 way with a common wire to the center, then a switched wire to high and low beam. I thought this was stock on my 75. In this case, I just take the center wire for power, and have the other two as switched high/low beam. I don't need a relay, right?

D+ goes to the Armature post of the generator. The wire to your generator light also comes off this post.
DF goes to the Field post of the generator.
B+ goes to the positive battery post. It also goes to your ignition switch.
Gnd goes to ground.

You don't need a relay for the headlight. The wire to the switch should be on the lighting breaker though.

Your draftsman should be able to change the background color of the plot to black to make the white and grey colors show up better. Autocad used to use a black background but changed when they went to the model views. I change them back to the old schemes to better match my color setups.

And I am assuming the lighting and Accessory C/B's are 15 and 10 amp? The main one is a 35 amp, right?

I'm not 100% certain on the 75 but I think the lighting is 15 Amp, the Ignition is 15 Amp and the main is 30.

On the Autocad DWG drawing yes it shows up grey and white wires, but when you change them to a pdf version they lose clarity. Autocad is not a thing most people can open.

Just looked at the link, didn't realize it was a pdf, for some reason I assumed it was a jpg or wmf. I've had some luck with them but the issue is always resolution, the small text always ends up blurry or shown as a box.

In the words of Roseann Rosanadana: Nevermind.
