Can somebody share a schematic for late 70s B or C Series?

@jwalk2cc  I used all 12 gage wire on my C160 but as 953nut stated 14 gage is fine. The only heavy wire is the starter to solinoid  and the battery wires.i think those are 4 or 6 gage.

Heavier is always better  (i usually use 14ga every where on my horsesexcept batteries Starters) but watching the amp meter with switch on points closed not running only draws about 4-5 amps.  even 16 is more than enough for that.

I do recommend using marine grade tinned wire on these things - far less chance of the copper rotting from being around moisture. Solder and shrink boot is always a good idea when building a new harness. I also add in a ground spider to the system to insure things like the voltage regulators, engine and other parts don't have to completely rely on their mounting points for a ground path - it always eventually leads to problems.
