  1. I have 201 without the diagram so I would appreciate that please. I will PM you. Thanks.
  2. Brilliant. Thank you. I bought some new fuses as I'm told old ones can be problematic.
  3. I don't know what spec the bulbs are and I don't have the time or inclination to be messing about as I need to use it but cannot with the lights as they are. If I do get a 'minute' I will check out more but the low voltage at the fuses suggests a feed isue so I'm hoping to get a wiring diagram this afternoon. I really appreciate your assistance and I would like it to work as it should but sometimes it is easier to replace. I did the same on my car (a Rover too) and the lights are infinitely better. Shame LED lights illegal on it. Now found originals only 40W so newer bulbs take far more currenT. Have borrowed a handbook but no wiring diagram so would greatly appreciate a copy please.

  5. Thanks for that. First lot of wiring stuff just arrived. Each filament will have its own relay with direct separate fused feed from better. Or from starter if I can access there.
  6. Not a lot of people know that! Thank you.
  7. The data plate says 12/24v FFR but the wiring is very thin and the fuses for the lights are 15A rather than the 8A specified. I'm getting about 12.5v at the battery but 11 is at the fuses. I will pop in relas which will sort the issue. Thanks for the help.
  8. Great ideas thank you. Will just wait until it stops raining. The gear lever feels like stirring a Christmas pudding so that needs sorting too. I suspect there might be a rubber that needs changing as it's only done 60,000m.
  9. I measured from bulb holder and earth on body. With engine running mains are both fine and dips are dimmer. Noticeably more Yellow but the same so I suspect it's a fault in the feed side assuming both filaments share the same earth. I may try with a meter to see where the drop occurs in the circuit.
  10. Good idea on map light as previous owner had left it on from when I saw it. The volt drop is to the bulb holder with light unplugged on that side. Interestingly the main beams are OK. It's just the dips which are poor. I'm wondering if the main light switch may be the problem.
  11. The data plate says 24v and I had assumed the wiring was the issue as it is so thin compared to my car. There is a 1v+ drop from the battery to the bulb holder. I am going to use the old connections to switch relays with much thicker wire and better bulbs. I will also look out for Clansman gear to go on the wings. Thank you.
  12. Thanks for the info. As it has been converted to 12v I'm re wiring the lights with relays and a direct feed. The alternator is there but no belt or cable.One battery is under tell seat but unclear where the other one went. In the back is a rack and two large terminals and a few leads. Two wing mounts and aerial mounts on side and various holes etc in hard top. Also got some sound proofing!

  14. I have just bought a 90 that was involved in the trials And wondered if anyone knows more than is on the Net or has any pics. I would also like to get aerials and wing boxes.
