Wiring Diagram for Early 912
The diagrams found here are for 1965-1967 912 cars. In later years the
electrical systems began to get more complicated with the addition of
circuits for a heated rear view window, an optional rear window wiper,
smog related engine controls and a fresh air blower in the instrument
panel. The diagrams here do not include those items.
We have several wiring diagrams saved on the server that are actually useful:
- The best is a layered PDF file
(157K). The layers can be viewed separately and have titles such as
"Turn Signals", "Head Lights" and "Horn". There are 14 layers. Layers
can be viewed with Adobe Acrobat version 6.0 and above. To upgrade
the the latest version of Acrobat the Adobe web site. This is cool technology! The natural print size of
this document is 46 x 32 in. and at least one person has printed it
full size on a 36 in plotter and says it looks very good.
- Here is a flattened PDF (160K) file for
Acrobat 5. I've printed this one on letter size paper and it produces
perfectly readable diagrams.
- The PDF file was flattened, shrunk, rasterized an converted to a
GIF file (164K). This one can
be views on the screen with some success.
- Here is a scan of the original
wiring diagram that came in my factory engine manual. It is pretty
big at 3740 x 2093 pixels or 17 x 11 in at 180 dpi and 925K bytes in
size. It takes a while to down load. It's advantage is there are not
mistakes on it that may have crept into the files that I created
The PDF files were created with
CS® that came with an upgrade to the Adobe Photoshop CS®
program that was recently released. I use Photoshop for all my image
preparation. The wiring diagram was used as a real project for me to
learn how to use Illustrator CS.
