Re: J Type wiring

I have just come back from the garage 3 1/2 hours trying to put 4 electrical connecters in place. I did drop the G/B down a bit it helped a lot. I got the new looms in place using a TR6 J type logic. The colours and everything are the same. Charles just as you said the sound deadening was the cause ...

Re: J Type wiring

Have just come back from my garage. I have just in case renewed the gear lever cables. The old cables just go to some squash type connectors (definately not Triumph bits) under the body work. Even with a mirror I have no idea where they are going. Reverse lights OK. So it looks as though I will have...

Re: J Type wiring

I don't quite get that one. I can see checking the switch cables. The brown lead goes to earth and the black lead has 12V permanent. So if I pull out the grommet I presume I can get at the leads coming up from the G/B but what is that going to tell me? I do not know what is going where. I need to kn...

Re: J Type wiring

Charles as I suspected, you have just confirmed that the junction is under the metal body work after the grommit. If I pull out the grommit is there enough wire to get at the bullet connector or whatever.

Re: J Type wiring

That sounds good. I hate taking the G/B off or dropping it down. Or even worse taking the O/D off on your own.

Re: J Type wiring

This problem has been around since the Scotland National. Oil has been checked. I have reserve cables from Rimmers but the horror is dropping th G/B down. Therefore I am hoping there is some way of doing it without dropping the G/B. I know the A type vewry well and over the years I have had it out a...

All these things indirectly change the vacuum values. This means that the Metering unit and pump will not work ...
