Wiring loom fault II E-mail

September 3, 2007

Finally sorted the fault in the fusebox. Rewired 1 relay and added 2 diodes to get rid of unwanted behaviour.  All in all this annoying bug has cost me about 6 hours to solve without the schematics. Pictures of the modifications next week.

Spent all evening yesterday to Iron out a fault in the loom / fusebox. We have all colour codes, connector numbers and the description of the fusebox, but we don't have the actual electrical schematics. The fault is in the lighting and, more specific, in the functionality of flashing the high beam when the  sidelights are on. Flashing the high beam doesn't do anything then and when turning the high beam on with the switch (nothing is supposed to happen then) is making a relay go haywire.  Here an image of the spaghetti:

Figured a great deal out but not to the bottom of the problem yet.


Foto upload fixed. E-mail
Saturday, August 25

Finally able to upload photo's into my gallery again. The reason that it failed to create thumbnails was that gallery was searching for a a library index file in the wrong places.

Now for the progress on the car. We are still busy with the wiring. Unfortunally it has a fault in it that needs to be ironed out first. The fault is in the wiring of the fusebox.

fusebox Wiring everywhere!

Furthermore we ordered the parts for the firewall. Special, very expensive :-( , sound deadening material and teh firewall steel. The firewall steel has to be cut in 5 sections that will be attached seperately.

Here comes the firewall 

Also some more Rover parts are on order to finish the work on the engine. An exhaust specialist was contacted to discuss the possibilities we have for the exhaust fabrication.


Back from holiday E-mail

August 15, 2007

Returned from holiday. Did some work on the wiring last Monday, but mostly we discussed the way forward from now on. A plan of action was agreed on and we are going to focus on the back of the car for a while, placing all the wiring, tubing, oil filter, coil, installing the firewall etc. Made a list of needed parts which are ordered now. 

Unfortunally I am still unable to upload new photo's into my gallery due to a problem with a configuration on the hosting server. Will have to be patient until that is resolved.
