Am I safe to assume that the brake wire to the inner lights from the brake relay is disconnected and capped and the the brakes are controled via the turn signal wire?

You figured it out. Please tell us what the fault was.

Default Got it all working!!!

What a mess this wiring was !
Traced the problem to the signal swithch.Wires had been cut and pulled out and jumpered from one terminal to another.
continunity testers and jumper wires are a must.
replaced a detent plate and painted the shift gauge and trim plate while I was in there.
replaced bulbs and got here working better than new!!
Those sequntial light are cool as hell.
Had a problem remembering who the steering wheel went back together but looked up one of Alexanders post of an exploded view and after painting the wheel got her back together.
Horn plate still wont reach the button.Is this commom?Solution?
This site has been amazingly helpfull.
Where do I send my $20.00?
Next is to rebuild the convert. pump/motor that craped out on me today.Gonna install a resetable breaker.Anyone know the amperage.or better yet a wiring diagram?
Thanks again!

Your horn button probably does reach the horn ring because the column shifted downwards when you were working on the steering wheel and the signal switch.

Easy fix. Loosen, but don't remove, the two Phillips head bolts under the dash that hold the column to the dash. Move the column up and then tighten the bolts.

Default Relay Stop Lamp

I put the Sequential Tail Lights in my 60 Sun Roof and added a relay to the stop lamp switch. The added load of 6 brake lights can cause the switch to melt. Ford had a recall on the 64 Birds for that reason. I used one of the recall kits part number C4SZ-14512-A on my car and the lights work great.

Default Sequential Tail Lights on a 1960 Thunderbird

Jack, thanks for that part number! That is good information to have in case someone else has the same problem with that switch.
