Car Wiring

Post by StrakerJunior » Fri Aug 15, 2014 4:35 pm

Is there anyone in the motorclub who is very competent at car wiring?

I just need a little guidance really.

I will be replicating my Mk1 escort loop but there are a couple of elements that are confusing me at the moment and it would be good to chat to someone local with some knowledge.

Thanks
Jeremy

It appears not, Jeremy. At least none of our 420 odd members who read the Forum regularly. Good luck with finding someone. Doesn't Simon May know anything or anyone?

I've just completed rewiring my old Volkswagen from scratch, I wouldn't call myself an expert but what do you want to know?

Hi Carl,
I am just looking for someone to sanity check my wiring plans before I progress too far and then end up with a loom all fitted to the car that either doesnt work or doesnt work but causes a melt down!!
Perhaps once I finish a few diagrams I could either upload them here or email them to you....let me see how I get along.
I have been reading lots online and things are starting to become a bit clearer ( things like adding relays to the lighting circuits, wire thicknesses for certain parts, wiring for alternator when the car used to have a dynamo, voltage regulator and separate solenoid)
Cheers

In terms of wiring bigger is not better.
