Hi, Is there a defined picture of what each terminal is for on a 1950 Ford headlight switch. I need to know where all these wires lead to . I can't seem to find what I need to know. THANKS !!!

The bakelite plate on the switch also carries the letters indicating function Note that there are 2 battery connections, something that confused me the first time I worked on wiring.
