Re: Wiring diagram needed

Thanks Neil.
That's some really useful info regarding diodes. Should help a lot when I return to electrics.

Re: Excel Interior Update

Continuing the black highlight theme, and concentrating on things that can easily be returned to standard, I thought earlier this month that the head rests wouldn't be too difficult to recover ( or make fresh) in black. What started as a like for like replacement ( other than colour) turned into thi...

Re: First job jobbed - 2 more found !!!

Yes. Bespoke headrest on one side. Just got to make another now. I'll put a picture on the thread I'm running about de-browning the interior trim sometime soon.

Re: Wiring diagram needed

I'd been thinking about diodes, but haven't seen anything that tells me where they are located. Any clues anyone.

Re: Wiring diagram needed

Looking like my lighting issue goes a bit deeper than just the non working Flash. I checked the stalk switching out and it's working just fine. Now I'm understanding the wiring diagram, decided the next check was to put meter on terminal 86 of the headlamp relay. With working lights in general, but ...

Re: First job jobbed - 2 more found !!!

Seeing as yesterday looked like being the last day of summer, thought it would be a good time to take the car out and snap a few photo's that don't just show lacquer peal :D Time to record the fruits of some of the last 3 months of work. And a chance to drive the car somewhere other than across to L...

Re: Wiring diagram needed

Thinking about it, I might just go straight in with the contact cleaner spray.

Re: Wiring diagram needed

Thanks for your help H..s0. Between sheets 6 and 7 and your guidance, I'm starting to understand things a little. I must say these diagrams are not easy to read and I'm pretty sure there are a few errors in them. Finally worked out that half of sheet 7 is duplicated on sheet 6 ! Why didn't they just...

Re: Spotted this up for Auction

Encouraging. - And that's for a left hooker. OK if you're looking in a mirror.

Looks to have been in pretty good original condition, but a good amount of crazing to the fibre glass and suspect the trim may be looking a bit saggy in places.
Would be nice to see the new owner on here.

Re: NEC Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show 2020

That's a shame, but I guess the way things are going, it was becoming increasingly predictable.
Takes the pressure off needing to get a pass for the cars imminent MOT.

Thanks to all for the efforts to get us represented. Definitely up for assisting at the Restoration show.

Re: Wiring diagram needed

Yes. I have page 17. Very informative and system better understood as result of reading, but struggling to understand where the main beam signal comes from on daylight flash.

Re: Wiring diagram needed = Flash not working.

Now happy I'm looking at correct diagrams for my car ( Sheet 6B is same as 6c, just with the dim dip module for UK market instead of a link wire) and as identified by Hawaiis0, the MF diagrams are identical. Now electrics are not my strong point, so any help would be appreciated here. Firstly, can a...

Re: Door beam compatibility

Tony - a chap on FB is looking for a drivers door beam for an elite, if you want to advertise it there let me know Stu : Drivers beam is solid, but the flat plate does have a reasonable amount of rust that has gone through in a few spots.

Re: Air Horn faults.

Problem solved. Turns out Noddies horn is a lot happier being blown than sucked 📯📯..... Careful guys.... The moderator will want a word. Don't know if it was the wiring polarity that was wrong or the pipes on wrong, but once connected correctly it honks like a good un. Used my 240 V air compressor t...
