I cant say I know exact numbers for you. I think the download is even on here somewhere. I wouldn't think they were to rare. That is what my 72 Opel was before I stripped her down and I knew of others that had automatics.

    I wish they were rare, because I just traded for one yesterday. Just traded for one yesterday, but when I went to hook up the battery, wires began to smoke so I pulled it off quickly. Don't know what to do now because I just got the car and don't have any manuals. Guess now it's time to hunt a repair manual. Originally Posted by Gabe G.

    If no smoke appears in a few seconds, install one fuse while wearing thick gloves and watch for smoke. Repeat until you identify the circuit causing the smoke.

    Consult available circuit-based electrical schematics for the affected circuit, to track down the area with the problem. The auto trans also has a separate circuit which doesn't appear in many books. OGTS has a service manual available. I don't know how good it is but they have it. I'll be ordering mine soon enough. FWIW, I have a 72 with an auto As for the smoking wire thing. First thing is to chase the big battery cable all the way to the starter.

    Takes less than 30 seconds. The passage through the firewall is a place where those cables wear through. Originally Posted by BQS4. Don't waste your time looking for a Clymer, Haynes, or whatever, go ahead and hunt down the one in the link.

    Even though the GT you just got may not be a 73 model, this is the last year service manual for them and it had everything in it for the GT. The wheels are 73 style but those get changed. What is the number on the drivers door frame?

    That will tell what year it is unless the door was swapped like mine. VIN number will help sort it out. Originally Posted by Anonymous D. Wires on an automatic trans in an Opel?

    Please try to tell us which wires were smoking. Was it the battery cables themselves? That would be one ferocious short to get them babies smokin' before any other wires in the car melted through. This all sounds like a headlight wiring short circuit scenario. Ed, the headlights in these cars have a catastrophic flaw in them and many a GT has caught fire due to it.

    The headlight circuit has no fuzes and the wiring they used from the radiator to the headlights loses it insulation and shorts out. If your headlight are up, then the lights are on. There's no switch in the car, microswitches in the headlight rotator mechanisms close the circuit when they are up.
