I'm working on a 66 Caravel
and have a couple of question (as will become clear, I am NOT an electrician!). With help from this forum and elsewhere I will be upgrading to an Intellipower converter. As I start into the electrical system, a couple of questions: There are two detached dead end "romex" type wires in the clost near the 110 breaker panel. I found one dead end romex in the area behind the furnace when I removed the appliances, etc. (which I assume is the other end of one of the mystery wires) From other posts I've read here I get the impression maybe the factory put in extra unused wiring during assembly just in case they were needed in the future. Any confirmation of that--or other thoughts/ideas on this? I want to replace the original gas only refrig. with a gas/electric, so I'm hoping maybe the dead ended wire I found behind the furnace can be used for the refrig.
Also, above the sink there is a duplex outlet and a "light switch". From other photos of Caravels, looks like that's standard. I have not checked, but assume the outlet is a 110, for whatever kitchen appliance (toaster, etc.) I have no idea what the switch is for. Anyone?
Finally, there is a shroud and vent and terminated wiring above the stove that obviously was for an exhaust fan that appears to have been operated by a pull chain. Fan and motor are missing. Has anyone dealt with this, i.e., are replacements or after-market substitutes available that will work?
Thanks in advance for any and all help.
