Hallo.  
I've an 73 Ford Gran Torino. I come from Germany. Our DIN Standard is a different from the ISO Standard. My problem is reading the american electrical clamping designations! I know only the German electrical clamping designations. Can someone send me a list of the individuell terminal designations  ?
Thanks

Can you get more specific on what you are looking for?  What wiring are you trying to repair?

I don't really know anything about clamping designations and don't think you really need them to fix or re-wire a Torino.   Are you redoing all of the wiring in your car?

We do have a wiring diagram here on the website that might be helpful for you:

If you ask specific questions and post some pictures of the wiring you are working on, I am sure some of us can help you through you project.

For example. The clamping designation for the Ignition is 15 in Germany and 16 in the USA . So I need the other complete clamping designations. For the Front an Back Lights, for the alternator, for the battery . . .

Get factory wiring diagrams (here or on Ebay) they will give You all the information You'll need-locations of connectors, wire colors, wire locations in connectors etc.

Do you meant the wire gauge?  Like the ignition wire is 16 gauge?  If so, this site will convert AWG to metric:
 
Otherwise, you just need a wiring diagram.  The link I posted above is the 1973 Torino wiring diagram.  It's not the factory one, but it's still very good.  You can buy a factory one off eBay:
 
 
You can also get a universal wiring harness if you are rewiring the entire car:
 
 
Or you could try to find good used wiring harness from North America and have them shipped to you in Germany.
 
Hopefully this helps.

This is Our DIN Norm for some clamping designations..
I have all original circuit diagrams. My problem lies in being able to read the individuell terminal designations .

Your problem lies in that being a load of Bibble-Babble.
 
It appears to be a system of designating circuits on a wiring diagram, and appears useful, until they declare that the designations need not be marked on the actual wires.
Makes for wonderful process diagrams that are next to useless.

Could this be what you need? This is from 1972.

I think we are getting lost in translation.  Clamping designations may mean Terminal designations on the gauge cluster plug.  Add into the mix that there are a couple different cluster plugs in that era 14pin, 15 pin and 18pin (IIRC and I'm probably wrong).  My 77 Chero has a 14 pin connector block to hook up the instrument cluster.

Cheers,

Doc
