Are yours powered up? Mine are not. I figured they were connected to the 24v stuff that is all gone on my 90.

Also, I think I read somewhere about them not being fused.

Hmmm. We're these all originally 24v converted to 12?

They had a separate 24v generator. So they had all 12 volt stuff for normal vehicle operation stuff.

I'd just leave them alone and wire something like this in http://www.wunderlichamerica.com/mot...e/8600675.html for 23$. Found it by googling and happens to be for a bike but same thing.

It looks like the series ones and these should do. I doubt they are fused so beware.

The trucks have both 12 and 24 volts at the same time. Those should just be hooked to 12 iirc.

That looks like a good alternative. Though I've never done any wiring but shit, happy to give it a go. Looks to have battery terminal connectors on it already too.

Maybe this is a better solution and would be wired correctly.

Thanks much

Hey Josh-man, those sockets are for things like this;

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Land-Rover...item2a2df912dc

They weren't originally fused, however a lot of military LR's were retrofitted with inline fuses on base, but there wasn't really any set place as to where that might be, so assume they aren't fused. They are also permanent live as far as I can recall. I personally wouldn't used them unless you put in a fused and switched socket on them. However, you will have a whole host of unused live feeds behind your military light switch console, some will be permanent live (brown wire I think) others will be ignition live (white wires) and some will be coloured wires for various systems that aren't fitted. Best bet is to get yourself a simple 12v tester to see which are live and which aren't, and if they are, then when. As far as sockets go, I love these; http://www.bluesea.com/products/1011...lt_Dash_Socket. I have two wired up in my MUD UK console.

I had an air compressor in my old 88 that was wired for that type of plug. That light is cool.

Those sockets were used for a leadlamp (and other 12v feeds, but mainly the leadlamp)

should be 12v, and as said, came from the factory UN-fused; there was indeed a modification done in workshop to add a fuse to it, as several LR's went up in flames!

You should be able to fit "banana" plugs to them, but there is a specific moulded 2 pin plug, as shown in the link above, to fit into them.
