Hi, the wiring kit Annalie ordered for Fossa arrived and the installation process started. Initially I wanted to retain the old wiring harness for reference purposes, removing this as a unit was proving rather difficult to impossible without removing the roll cage and the roof lining. The removal of the old cabling showed many more prior damaged cables and testing the ignition switch gave intermittant contact. Maybe this last short circuit was the final straw. Another two days was wasted attempting to follow that route for installation an alternative was going to be the only option. The quality of the kit seems extremely good ….. The supplier in South Africa was very helpfull in attempts to resolve some issues and some had to be resolved diy. Then there is still one or two circuits that does not seem to work, maybe it is just that I am not an auto electrician.
Well days later everything that I need and more is working.
Sometimes Fossa Ford Anglia just demand attention, a while back we discovered that her Weber carburettors are not fully opening and to scratch that from the to do list we looked at improving the setup to discover the cable frayed with only one strand hanging on … Well all done and Fossa sounds mean …. Only remaining issue is the wheel alignment I wanted to have done, the opportunity for that lost due to a call out for work due to an unacceptable lack of communication and ……
29 September, Historic Tour, round 6, Zwartkops Raceway. We have entered two events again, the Pre66 Legends Little Giants and the Pursuit race …… Let’s try for another second and not to break out in the Pursuit race 😉
See you there!!
