Were reversing lights ever an option on the 4A or are yours retro fitted like mine Pete?

What a lovely photo, perhaps not ideal to park on a bend but the effect was worth it.

They were an option though not built in like a 5 they were a separate Lucas type IIRC like this Lucas lamp

Thanks Stuart, I never knew that. As a matter of interest do you know when the provision for a reversing light switch on the gearbox top cover was first made? I fitted Wipac reversing lights, preferring these to the TR5 type since they needed only two tiny holes for the wires rather than a socking great one in the middle!

I think from TR4 (4syncro box) there was a plinth on the gearbox top for reverse to allow for the drilling.

Hi,

My TR4, built Jan 1962, had the top cover switch fitted and the wiring loom had the requisite feed into the boot.

It must have been specified for reversing lights from new then Dave for it to have the wiring back there already in the loom as that was extras normally, unless the loom had been latterly replaced with a more modern one..

Thanks Stuart,

I think the loom was original, just in the process of fitting a new one as it is a long way past it's use by date. Interesting that there's no mention of reversing lights on the Heritage certificate along with heater, windscreen washers and Michelin X tyres
