Wiring 6A dial
« on: July 27, 2011, 10:26:08 AM »
I have a 302 with a 6A dial. I've taken it apart, and neglected to document which wires went where on the dial. Is there a wiring diagram available that shows factory wire colors and screw placement?

There's this diagram on the TCI repository. It has the colors and names of the terminals on the dial, but not the position (a picture of where the screw is on the dial).

Click View or Download to get the diagram.

Also, a great 354 diagram was just posted that does show the position of the screws on the dial, and the wiring should be the same.

If I could find a photo of the 6A dial with the terminals labeled, that would be helpful. I found photos which sort of help here: http://www.classicrotaryphones.com/forum/index.php?topic=4690.0

Except for the black and white, the colors are sort of indiscernable from the photos there.

Wire it as follows:

Yellow brown from switch: Y

Black condenser and HS wire to: BK

Slate red jumper from L1: RR

Blue brown switch wire to: BB

White handset wire to: W
 
This should fix it

I still have a question... which screws are which? They do not seem to be labeled. Again, a labeled drawing or photo would be helpful.

Looking at the back of the dial, there are 5 screws. One on the left and one on the right low to the back of the dial, and 3 higher ones in the center, sort of grouped in a triangle.

I'm assuming the one on the right is where the white from the handset goes. The center screw seems to be where the black wires from both the handset and the condenser belong. The other 3 are the ones in question.

Would this be an accurate drawing to depict wiring the 6A dial? I took the liberty of modifying an existing drawing I found here.
