I have a 1957 Ford 600 series and have an owners
manual, but the wiring diagram does not explain
in detail..I am trying to get my head lights and
rear light to work properly without draining my
battery when ignition is off..really would like
a diagram of the lights hook up, or a possible
explination..thanks

While I do not have a wiring diagram specific to 600's that shows light also I am sure if you look at the diagrams in the link you will see how they are hooked up.

You just run a wire from the hot all the time side of the terminal block (or some other source that has power all the time) to the light bulb; install a fuse and light switch in this wire to protect and control the power to the bulb.

DO NOT GET YOUR POWER SOURCE FROM THE KEYED SIDE OF THE IGNITION SWITCH. The switch will not handle the power draw.

I'l go for the explanation.

A lamp circuit is the most basic electrical circuit I can think of.

power from battery, to lamp switch, thru fuse, to lamp. one side of lamp is grounded.

find the wire that feeds the ignition switch.. hook the feed wire for the lmaps up to the terminal that wire that feeds the ignition is connected to.. now both are connected there.. use a lamp switch with a fuse. run wire from the lamp switch terminals to your lamps.. ground the lamps to a good ground.. 50 yr old rusty sheet metal may not do it.. so I like to run a ground wire from under the lamp to a good spot on the cast iron frame somewhere.

awg 14 wire is usually fine for lamps.
