Hey what a surprise, the lamps I bought on Ebay.uk didn't come thru. Auction ended. I won. No nothing from seller. Like zero. Got my refund from Paypal and left a scathing negative feedback for all the world to see. Movin on.

Big pink wire?

OK so I'm working on the wiring now. One thing that has me puzzled is the presence in this new harness of a big pink wire that goes from behind the dash to the rear where the tail lights are. This wire does not show up on any of the diagrams I can find. Looking at the shambles of my old 1966 vintage cloth covered harness this wire does indeed appear there as well (even tho it's pinkness is rather faded).
No clue what is is for. Anybody know? Is it just a big hot feed for whatever? It is not switched or anything.
Oh and I also completely disassembled the harness I got from British Wiring cz it didn't quite fit the 2A. That's a LOT of PVC wrap undone.

Easiest thing to do is look up the color chart on TerriAnn's website. Based on the Lucas color chart for wiring that went into all their products I believe.

Just looked it up and there is no pink colored wired, there is red wires with tracer color though.

Wiring done. I hope I never have to wrap another harness.
I ordered the diesel S3 harness from britishwiring then proceeded to completely dismantle it and remove all the PVC wrap. Then I had to figure out which circuits I needed and reconcile those with the 2A dash. This meant lopping off numerous terminals and runs. It also meant making new connections.
Must say that it probably would have been better to make it all from scratch myself, but buying probably saved me two or three days.
I also soaked a bunch of stuff in rust-solve. That stuff is miraculous.

Maybe this is obvious, but for the benefit of future readers, why did you use SIII harness over SIIa harness?

The S3 harness came with circuits for reverse lamps, fogs, and more accessories. I had to add a diesel stop solenoid a tach signal diff lock warn light heated windscreen radiator fan winch remote control trailer adapter and some odds and ends.
The air con controls will be on a single knob control next to the key switch.

I have a Lucas 4 fuse box plus the old 2 fuse box. Seems to be plenty for now. I will have things like the heater blower and a/c clutch on dedicated lines.

2 fuses, you've just got to love Lucas Prince of Darkness.
I hope you fully charged the system with smoke.

Salisbury conversion sorted out. No "machining" or grinding needed. Proper stub axles, RRC rear hubs, 110 calipers and rotors and of course the caliper bracket.
Been thru several hubs and tried spacers on the bracket all no good.
It is correct now.

Redrilling the turbo housing to clock it about 60 degrees for a more friendly plumbing arrangement.
Note that I made one hole and found that the wastegate actuator would foul the outlet. Just moved the bracket and started over.
Turbo is clamped to the drill press with a bolt and an old shock absorber washer.

So got the rear axle pretty much done. Bent up the brake lines and got them connected. Only stopper is that I need a drive flange on the drivers side. Maybe I'll ask the forum.

Final few chores on the rear axle. Pic shows it as clean as it ever will be. Ran the vent up into wheel well. Clip rivnutted to chassis. Got the Jesus nut run up right about 300 ft pounds on it. Brake lines strapped.
Leaving wheels off till brakes are bled.
Below is my method of trimming the rivet heads on the middle floor. Set dremel a few thou above the paint. Most were successful. Some not so much.
Also got the seat box laid in place as well as the middle floor. No pics but certainly next time.
Today busied myself swapping the pulley flange off the RRC power steering pump and the 200 tdi psp. Now officially have all belt drive accessories installed. Woo hoo.

Holy smokes was it hot in the barn! Lots of cool down breaks needed.
Another full weekend working and no visible progress.
Used old OE splash panels as template for the "pattern part" reproductions. These were off by over 3/4 inch I used the air nibbled and a straightedge to bring them back to the same size as the old ones. Set them aside for galvy.
Got to work on the RH wing. Patched a big hole I cut in it years ago for the IH V8 alternator. I used the middle door skin the paint shop ruined. Got the lamps in. It's ready to go on.
I know it doesn't sound like much but I finally got the power steering pump where I want it. I am getting real quick at pulling the pulley flange off these things .
Installed the intake exhaust and turbo. Exhaust manifold got thermocouple adapter.

Ok here's the cardboard template for the wing top modification. As you can see in the pic it is a pretty good fit and still gives access to the clutch fill. It was taken from an S3 wing top. Clears the 50 type booster by a quarter inch or so. I fudged over the line where it will attach to the bulkhead so that I catch both bolts.
Next up: notching a rare S2A wing....
