Pantera Electrical Diagrams

Diagrams By Bill Taylor

The electrical diagrams on this page were researched and drawn by Bill Taylor and they show the detail of one electrical system at a time.  The drawings do not replace the large single electrical diagrams available from the club stores and vendors, they work in conjunction with the large diagram. 

All information and images on this "Pantera Electrical Diagrams" website page are the property of The Pantera Place and Bill Taylor.  The information presented on The Pantera Place website is intended for the use of individuals to learn about the Pantera and not for commercial use or sale   Any use or reproduction of the information presented on this  Pantera Place website page outside of this scope of use must be authorized by The Pantera Place and Bill Taylor.  

The diagrams are in Acrobat Reader .pdf format for development, exchange, and downloading purposes. Left click link to view with Adobe Acrobat if you have it installed on your computer or right click and click "save target as" to download the pdf. file to your computer.  They take a minute or so to download, so be patient. 

After downloading they should be rotated using the Acrobat Reader toolbar. They may be printed by selecting the Acrobat Reader Printer Icon and then selecting Landscape on the Properties Menu. I think you will find the image quality is very good. They are scaled to fit 8.5 x 11 paper so they can be collected in a loose leaf binder. 

Many thanks to Bill Taylor for all the time he spent researching and making these drawings and then sharing his work with our Pantera Place visitors.

Turn Signal Flasher Conversion notes: 

#1 converts from the old 4 wire flasher to a standard 3 wire flasher by just moving wires. This version, however, can not support flashing the turn indicator in the tach.

 #2 conversion adds a relay to conversion #1 to support flashing the turn indicator in the tach.

 The conversions can be done in sequence to make life a little easier.

The following drawings were originally collected from various sources by Asa Jay Laughton, who scanned and spent many hours cleaning up and detailing them.  After Asa Jay did the work to improve the readability he made them available through the POCA club store in PDF format.  In May of 2007 Chris Difani did many more hours of clean up work on them and converted them to JPG format.   Many thanks to Asa Jay Laughton, the POCA club and Chris Difani for sharing their work with our Pantera Place visitors.

To use these files save them to your computer by "right clicking" on the link and then doing "Save Target As".  You can view and print the files with most image viewers.  

You can have these JPG files printed at your local Staples or Kinko's copy center, in 24" by 36", or 36" by 48" size. You must take the JPG files to the store, as that's the only format they use. You can also get these laminated at the typical price of $2 per square foot (for example: 36" by 48" equals 12 sq ft or $24).

A good way to transport the files is to copy them to a USB thumb drive or flash drive of some kind, and take that to the Staples or Kinko's copy center.  Ask them to plot to a large format output, as a black and white image. That should be all they need in terms of instructions from you.

These wiring diagrams are part of a larger package of literature that includes Bill Taylor's drawings (above) that are available from the Pantera Owners Club of America, Club Store  You can view a Sample of the literature at  the Pantera Owners Club of America
