Question about Chrysler New Yorker
With all due respect, may I just suggest pausing for a reality check?
You're asking how to refit a dash to a sixty year old car and the dash is both for an export RHD model and is not even standard and is highly likely to have been modified to some degree since it left the factory. You're asking this on a website where we cannot post even simple diagrams and where any answers you do get may well be incorrect, and where mistakes could cause a fire in the wiring loom.
This is a great site, and volunteers like me do the best we can to help folks fix things themselves but in this case there is only one safe and solid answer: get a specialist auto-electrician in. You can tailor the service by either getting the dash fully fitted or just asking for the wires to be re-labelled.
Note that faded sixty year old wiring looms are not to be relied upon and you are strongly advised to remove it to use as a pattern to fabricate a new one with. As long as you use the correct wire ratings and are methodical this is not a difficult job but it is a bit time consuming. This could either be done using modern wiring materials or there are pricier modern materials which have the appearance of vintage textile braided wiring. Remember that the loom wrapping will hide most of the wiring used so unless the car has to be 100% original there's no drawback in using modern fire-resistant thin wall pvc wiring. Remaking the loom also restores the wiring colours and allows for more fuse protection and load reducing relays to be fitted; these can usually be hidden away to preserve the original appearance if desired. Many classic car insurers will refuse to pay out for a wiring related incident if a perished loom is refitted after an overhaul, and if you can prove that additional safety features have been correctly installed they'll often reduce the annual premiums.
I hope that you can take this answer in the spirit in which it's intended, and understand that the additional advice does directly relate to the information which you've given in your question. To omit the advice would have been irresponsible.
Good luck, and you have my sympathies: I'm just nearing the end of a six-year long restoration of a 1946 Lagonda 2.5 litre Mk1.
