  • Electrical: Philco radio wiring question

    Regarding the radio for my 47 Champ, there is a black wire with what appears to be an in-line fuse. There's also a green wire. I don't have a schematic for it. I would assume the black wire would go to the switch??? Does anyone know what the green wire is for? I didn't see a plug for the antenna that looks like what I would expect.

    Thanks for your assistance.

    The black power wire goes to the accessory position on the ignition switch.

    Someone added the green wire. Often these added wires are for an external speaker.

    There is a round hockey-puck-like thing on the lower side of the radio case that has the antenna receptacle in it.

          Hey RadioRoy, I got a chance to take a closer look at my radio. That green wire is coming out of that hockey puck shaped thing on the side. It appears to coming out of the socket where the antenna wire might plug in. Ideas? Was that green wire supposed to go to an external type of antenna?

            Someone stuck that green wire in the antenna socket to test the radio on the bench
