  1. Yes John, the version I have has the third connection between the two wires shown in the photo to wire a lamp. Before I installed mine I did some research (because I am not very good with electrickery) which suggested that the two wires were specifically positive and negative. From recollection there was nothing so simply as + or - stamped next to each wire but a letter code. May be relevant if you get one of these. Miles
  2. Thanks Tom - that's better! Got it off eBay some years ago. About £10 from recollection. Miles
  3. +1 Here's mine under the dash, attached to the back of the brake / clutch cylinder inset. Miles
  4. Lovely steering wheel Dan. Did you do the restoration yourself? Miles
  5. Rob. No reason to believe it is not present but as part of my ongoing 3A education, I will check when I am next in the garage. Miles
  6. To my untrained eye that looks like a very good candidate for a sympathetic restoration.
  7. Hi Waldi Thanks for the feedback. This is I think the standard arrangement for the battery earth strap on a 3A. I think there is also a strap between engine and body but better experts than me on a 3A will confirm. Miles
  8. Sue and Roger. Hope you recover soon. Your Register needs you! Following Peter's advice some years ago I take high dose vitamin D and I have a flu jab every winter. I think I benefit from both but alas some infections will get through. Miles
  9. Just to sign off this thread. With the benefit of everyone's input, I decided on a permanent solution rather than constantly detaching (and reattaching) the earth and positive cables from the battery on a regular basis. Identified an existing 1" hole in the bulkhead on the N/S, close to the battery. installed a 12v socket with a cover wired directly to the battery clamps for the the earth and positive cables. Removed the croc clips from my battery conditioner and wired a fused, cigar type adapter to the wires. I already have a battery cut off switch installed, so no risk of power leakage when charging. Job done!
  10. If it ain't broke Deggers...
  11. Use it or lose it Conrad! Miles
  12. And if you have the matching sender for the fuel gauge Conrad, even better! Miles
  13. Thanks for posting the diagram and photo. I have been wondering for some time how the flap worked. Can now think about how to modify my bespoke hood to minimise drips in the cabin in heavy rain. The Forum wins again! Miles

    I wonder what the original colour scheme was (car not model!). Miles
