  1. Thank you both, seems the obvious thing to do now youv'e said to extend the wires.
  2. Hi everyone, I have 2 questions today i hope you can help with; 1/ I have wired up my new loom and everything is working except the offside indicators, The nearside is fine but the offside nothing not even the dash light.I have checked the bulbs and they all seem fine and ive tried the old and a new flasher relay. Any ideas? 2/ My gearbox has been rebuilt and the overdrive switches on the top gearbox cover have been fitted so that the electrical spades are facing away from each other causing the loom to be stretched. Can i take a fibre washer out therefore giving me a little more turn on the switch to ease the wiring or are the amount of washers critical, there are two washers on one switch and one on the other. I hope this makes sense, Many Thanks Nick
  3. Hi Roger,

    Thankyou for your reply re; my ammeter. Will the main casing become live if i have the spades fixed with nuts straight to the back of the ammeter. If so, what do i put between them to stop this, i am guessing some rubber washers?

    I hope this makes sense and i'm not completly bonkers.

      Hi Nick,

            the posts that the spades are attached to should be insulated form the case.

      The nuts will be live but isolated from the body work.



  4. Yes i will Ciao, Thanks
  5. I have tried to upload photos but am struggling, i will have another go tomorrow. I think Roger has answered my question, so thanks Roger.
  6. Sorry guys i am not making myself clear. I understand about the knurled nuts and bracket. If you look at the picture, the gauge on the left has the green and black wire and the light green and white wire are coming off two spade connectors. If you look carefully they are held on by round brass looking screws. My temperature gauge has them but my ammeter just has nuts. These are what i am not sure about, do i need them or are nuts ok? Many Thanks Nick
  7. Thanks Guys, i have the holding bracket and understand it musn't touch the spade connectors. i am talking about the round nuts/screws that you can just see in the above picture on the gauge on the left, or can i use the ordinary nuts that are already on there.
  8. Hi all, My ammeter has just comeback from being refurbished and doesn't have the round (brass looking) screws that hold the spades in position on the back (i'm afraid i dont know the name and can't find any info on them) but my temperature gauge does have them. The ammeter was sent back to me with just nuts on the back and no spades. The firm sent the spades back to me but not the round screws and i can't remember if they were on the ammeter when i sent it to be refurbished or not. My Question is do i need them or can i just use the nuts on the spades ? I hope this is not a daft question but electrics are not my thing so i am trying to double check everything electrical!! Many Thanks, Nick
  9. Hi, I am putting in LED bulbs in the Dasboard and i have a new loom. The Led bulbs supplied are the screw in type which is fine except when i come to the 4 small instruments, they look like they should be a bayonet fitting and i would of thought they would all be the same ie one or the other . Do wiring looms differ or am i missing something? Many Thanks, Nick
  10. Hi John, It is 72, Cp 765530. I know it shouldnt have headrests, i just want to be sure the frames with the head rest bracket can be fitted with seat covers that don't have provision for a head rest. Thanks
  11. Hi folks, Can i use the seat covers with no provision for headrests with frames that have provision for headrests? Someone has put newer seats in my car and i want to go back to the original, i think i can but wanted to check before i go ahead and order. Many Thanks, Nick

    Captive Nuts

    I have just got my bumpers back from being Chromed and went to put the rear on, only to realise the Captive nuts were missing on the centre section. Is there a way around this or am i going to have to buy a new centre section. Many Thanks, Nick
  13. Thank you Stuart, that is what i wanted to hear.
  14. Thank you Nigel, that helps.
