I used to be setting together the wiring harness and determined now was the time to put in the delco 63 amp in region of the 30 amp lucas. I used a mr. Gasket #9851 regularly occurring bracket for the pinnacle adjuster. Needed to cut the give up off and drill a five/16 hole in it. I used a 3/eight ss nut as a spacer and changed the unique bolt with a longer one, i think it went from 2.5 to 3 inches lengthy. The bottom bolt became at first 5 inches long.? a four.25 inch bolt might appear to be ideal but the nearby hardware save only had bolts as much as 4 inches, so i improvised for now and put a spacer in back.? i will discover the correct period bolt. The decrease alternator mount is also 3/8 no longer 5/sixteen because the original.? i used a bit of drawn aluminum tubing 3/eight (.375) od and .305 identification.? 5/16 is .3125, so we put the tube in a lathe and used a five/sixteen inch reamer in the long run inventory of the lathe to get the right length.? you want 2 inches of this bushing. The aluminum tube is 6061-t6 or tough aluminum (aircraft aluminum) so it machines nicely.? the authentic fan belt become too brief. I stopped up the usage of a #15460 that's 1.5 inches longer than the unique. I used #6 wire for the main feed. The alternator feed again and charge lamp wires are run through wire loom. For this wiring i used the shell of a new plug and inserted new connector pins and cable so that there would now not be any splices. On this photograph the engine is genuinely going for walks at an 800 rpm idle. The fan appears nevertheless because of the flash. Cleaning out the basement and looking to arrange parts. Today 11-23-2013, did some greater organizing and labored on a number of the lighting. Made a hard and fast of exact tail mild assemblies out of the 2 sets and numerous parts of units.? had a new opposite lamp lens for one in all them.? masses of cleaning... The front is one of the standard lamp assemblies with melted elements and so on....? one tail light assembly showing restored indoors and the only in the returned is a finished one besides for the brand new gaskets that i will have to get. Every other amendment is individual grounds for each bulb socket instead of counting on the elaborate grounding in the beginning used. Had a request / question about grounding on the rear lamps. I found out i in no way posted any pix of the boot aspect of the lamp assemblies. There is additionally a floor to the assembly. The grounds on the opposite aspect of the metripak one hundred fifty connector go to a commonplace boot ground this is fed via #6 twine. The floor gadget is proven earlier on this page. Cord junctions i endured to run into the need for junctions, nearly all below the dash. I fabricated a couple terminal blocks with studs in place of screws and made ss brackets mounted both aspect of the heater fan motor. This is the diagram. Purple are the brackets, the inexperienced is the heater motor housing.? each holds a six position barrier strip, #eight screws. I removed the unique screws and inserted screws from the rear of the barrier strips making them stud mount that is higher suitable to ganging multiple wires.? the lower back facet of the terminal blocks have been stuffed in with black silicone.? every mounting bracket were given more than one massive dabs of silicone and let sit to almost dry, then set up. A pdf of the terminal board template is right here. That is what it looks like. A legitimate query and an essential one came up from an observer. With the wiring terminal blocks established on the heater box, how does one remove the heater if (when) it fails. The wiring all comes in from above. One need to be able to unmount the terminal blocks and cast off the heater assembly down and out. Of route this is straightforward for me to without a doubt say, by no means having absolutely done it. ? windshield wiper stuff finalized the wiper circuit on four-1-2014. The design maintains the wiper manage in essentially the identical position on the sprint, adds the intermittent wiper characteristic, and gives a control for a preferred washer motor /reservoir in place of the push pump at the unique. April 2, 2014, among different non-spitfire related treats, made the bracket and by and large wired the manipulate and relays for the wiper circuit. Routed cabling for the transfer and motor. Stressed out washer relay, linked to terminal block. The following is the schematic and some notes. For higher resolution schematic and extra notes, please e-mail me through the link at the lowest of the page.. The table of the wiper motor connections / plug connections are searching at the stop of the plug at the cable to the wiper motor. The ss module and the two relays mount on a 5 inch lengthy x 1.Five inch huge piece of aluminum stock this is mounted to the right of the battery container within the passenger foot properly. This is largely below the wiper motor, behind the glove compartment. Two # 10 ss screws from the bulkhead into the passenger compartment hold the bracket in place. The transfer combination is a custom build. It could be less complicated if one wanted a separate washer button. There are single pole washing machine switches commercially to be had which have a push characteristic for a washer, but i couldn't discover any two pole gadgets with four positions to house the intermittent characteristic. So right here at rockbottom labs, we built one. First we received a few 2 pole 4 role rotary switches. Simplest one is needed, however this changed into a custom. Need one to break. The transfer became disassembled. After the ball bearings and comes have been retrieved from throughout the store, a 1/eight hole changed into drilled through the transfer shaft and the bottom. After a couple attempts and some vocabulary "enhancement", a 1/eight shaft turned into handed through the transfer additives. A bit of 1 inch id aluminum square tube was milled out barely so the transfer would match interior. A short-term switch was connected to the returned of the unit so the shaft would press against the transfer. The standard spitfire wiper manipulate knob become drilled to house a small button. This button is tapered so it does no longer push out of the knob. The connections are through a delphi metripack one hundred fifty series connector. It looks like this: mounting details to comply with later. ? headlight switch became never satisfied with the original headlight circuit. I think it's miles a completely terrible, if now not potentially unsafe design. All the current for all the lighting fixtures on the auto ran thru the panel switches. This coupled with the bad fusing technique and shortage of proper fusing was a capacity recipe for catastrophe. A 30 amp fuse feeding 10 amp cord scares me. I also wanted to include such things as daylight walking lighting and walking mild choice. I wanted the head lamps to turn off with the ignition, and all lighting fixtures to extinguish in the start role. Additionally i wanted the usual warning if the parking lighting were left on, and the important thing changed into in the ignition with the ignition off, or the lighting have been left on and the door changed into opened. I also desired to take away the annoying (insert extra suitable words right here if you preference) buzzer warning and replace it with something greater palatable. A fog light transfer also was to be added, so area / size as opposed to capability was a consideration. Several options had been considered and i in the end went lower back to rockbottom labs for a brand new design. As high and coffee beams as well as parking lamps are now relay controlled, switch present day coping with functionality is not a lot a element. I used an off the shelf four gang three function rotary transfer. To pick sunlight hours going for walks mild alternatives, a couple of change motion small push button switches are used, one for head lamps and one for marker / parking lamps.(We stay near canada which has one of a kind necessities than the united states.) I possibly truly did not want to do that. But i should, so i did. This is the wiring diagram. The brown wire with no label goes to the acc position at the ignition transfer. It looks like this earlier than mounting on an aluminum plate. The transfer shaft may be trimmed to an appropriate duration later. As of four-6-2014 the subsequent electric gadgets were wired and are functioning: directional signs four way flashers reverse lamp circuit heater fan horn ignition transfer circuits windshield washer / wiper cooling fan 4-eight-2014; assembled headlight switch components on metal bracket and stressed out. Maximum of the headlight wiring is complete. 4-nine-2014; determined headlight ground cables and connected regular incandescent headlights to cord harness to check. All good enough. Still want to attach cord for the principle beam flash characteristic. Taken care of out a number of the solid nation module placement and bench wired and tested door chime / seat belt warning module. Made up cable to attach drivers door switches. Four-10-2014: set up drivers door switches and stressed "key in" alarm and seat belt alarm module. (The "dinger" or chime or as i name it the vital worrying device.) I've positioned it on its personal fuse that can be without difficulty pulled to mute it. The door switch with two tabs, or remoted from ground appears hard to get, or it randomly arrives whilst ordering the single tab switch. Substitutes at rimmer brothers and others are indexed however they look like a grounding type transfer as is used for lights. I guess if you have any such hold on to it. I'm sure there are many others with a view to work electrically, but now not be the equal automatically. Hooked up the fog lamps and wired what had now not already been wired. Basically from the manipulate relay to the lamps. Set up the wiring to the fog lamp transfer and tested. One minor quirk with the fog mild indicator. Checked gadget voltage with fog lamps, headlights, parking lights, heater fan on high and 4 approaches flashing. 14.Five volts at idle, 14.7 volts at 3000 rpm. Four-11-2014; got began on one thing and ended up on some other. Established the connector below the sprint to attach the rear harness to. The rear wiring harness was established. The rear lighting were given set in place. (All of the lighting is hooked up temporarily for trying out.) As of 4-eleven-2014 rear parking lamps brake lighting opposite lighting rear directional / 4 manner flashers license plate lamps are functional. Did temporary deploy of energy antenna within the left rear fender. There has been already a hole there for an antenna. Fits quite properly truely and is very tall when extended. Not one of those compact antennas that extends a whopping 18 inches or so. I was inspired with the fine. The motor appears to be a denso motor, eastern. It looks same to those in my volvo 850's. Someplace i have a right attitude mounting bracket from a volvo 850 with a view to make mounting the motor unit easy. The mast housing is stainless-steel as is the mast. The mast extends 31 inches or so. The unit features a separate motor and mast head coupled together with a beefy bendy tube. The motor unit sits properly over the left rear wheel well. You could purchase this at crutchfield a touch less money. Retro sounds pa-02 antenna 4-13-2014: stressed out ground cable to drivers side bulkhead. This floor factor serves the drivers side tool vicinity and continues on to the boot. Inside the method re-labored the brief floor factors, mounted the relay banks. Stressed the speedometer connector and maximum of its mate in the back of the dash. Used a delphi metripak one hundred fifty ten position connector. One connector does the complete speedometer. In the following photo the connector does no longer show properly. The voltage regulator become converted to strong kingdom. But it is going to be eliminated as it's far no longer needed. Only the fuel gauge now needs 10 volts regulated and i have built that into the gauge. 6-24-2014: been making plans to have an overhead courtesy lamp however have simply gotten to paintings on it. A wire pair changed into run from the passenger kick panel and through the windscreen frame. A five/16 hole to house a grommet become drilled over the drivers role and behind the sun visor on the bottom of the frame and the wire snaked via that. A counter bore turned into used to reduce any burr on the interior of the frame. I stopped up the use of #20 twine as the lamp meeting most effective attracts .060 amperes. The issue right here is the circuit fuse length and the wire length. As this is a led fixture there may be no want of large wire, however after walking the cord, it appears that there can be sharp edges inside the windscreen body and if the deliver facet of the circuit is shorted, i desired the fuse to blow. I had firstly fused the courtesy lamp circuit with a ten amp fuse. Doing a test with a bit of the identical wire and length and 10 amp fuse on the battery terminals proved a ten amp would blow after several attempts and several seconds, however the twine could get warm. A 7.5 amp fuse blew immediately. As the entire circuit consumes about 2 amps absolute most, i modified the fuse size to five amps. This is a drawing of the lamp assembly i designed to healthy the distance. I had checked out alternatives, consisting of led strip lighting, however not anything appeared to match the auto physically and aesthetically. I did now not want some gaudy equipment dangling and distracting. This fixture has 8 excessive depth five mm led and is 1 by means of 2.Five inches with the aid of 3/8 of an inch thick. I have built the prototype out of wooden. I can also make a very last version out of aluminum. There's a sub miniature switch that selects on with door, off and guide on. Decided to just pot the rear with black silicone rubber. ? 8-26-2014: finally laid in the second rear harness. The primary harness is for the rear lights. The second one harness deals with such things as gasoline gauge, electricity antenna, boot lighting, alarm stuff, ejector seat and smoke screen and depth rate controls, and many others and so on. Additionally ran a couple of cables for rear speakers. There is a pair in enclosures that got here with the car that just sit on the rear deck. I think i'll just use them first of all together with the ones which have been built into the kick panels. Nine-1-2014: pulled middle dash panel. Introduced a pair losing resistors to tame the brilliance of the headlamp switch signs. 9-7-2014: began connecting secondary rear wiring harness. Linked fuel gauge circuit first. Gauge did not check in. Check sender and circuits. All ok. Interestingly, the 6 gallons i had placed in the tank mysteriously disappeared. Why it seems i've been ripped off. Consider that! A person could certainly scouse borrow fuel. Tough to trust........ Stressed accent strength to the boot. Tested energy antenna. 10-28-2014: haven't completed a good deal in a month. This night mounted the right bonnet transfer. Have been slowly working on a couple custom engine bay lights on the way to mount on the underside of the bonnet. Ran the wiring through the left bonnet assist tube. Dug out the layout to make the the front marker lighting function as indicators in addition to markers. I suppose the identical could be done for the rear. I never carried out this inside the rewire of the car. This will require no amendment to inventory wiring apart from placing into current bullet connectors. I've proto typed it and built it on the bench however no longer a working version within the automobile. Would possibly build a couple this iciness when i placed my circuit board system returned together. That is the simplified schematic. It's miles all stable kingdom and can be made very small in size. It truly diode passes the signs to the marker bulb. If the parking lighting fixtures are at the circuit virtually turns off the marker while the indicator is on. The marker will flash alternately with the indicator when the parking lights are on and in sync with the indicator while the parking lighting fixtures are off. The circuit does drop about 1.Five volts. The trade in brightness of the incandescent bulb is barely perceptible. One should conquer this by way of using an led alternative bulb. ? a complete size pdf of the circuit is here. 11-2-2014: this is some other way of constructing a marker flasher circuit the use of an ordinary relay. This unique relay is one that i came about to have several of. It's far a circuit board mount, so it is able to now not attraction to anybody. One ought to substitute a popular bosch type plug in relay or equal. These typically could have ~ ninety - one hundred ? coil resistance. The capacitor could want to be in the variety of 6000 ?f. The relay and capacitor may be socket set up. The diodes could be axial lead 10 amp a hundred volt which includes an nte5812hc or similar, related to the socket through solder or push on connectors and to the harness via bullet connectors, or via other way so long as appropriate wiring practices are adhered to. ? a complete length pdf of the circuit is right here. Eleven-23-2014: wired the radio and speakers in nowadays. Connected the antenna, examined reception. Radio controls power antenna simply high-quality. Installed the kick panel with audio system loosly and positioned the stand by myself audio system at the rear deck. Sounds good enough, not wonderful, however i am used to a excellent sound structures inside the volvo's. That is a small convertable. I parent if i can pay attention it at all at the same time as driving on the way to be nice. If it sounds desirable whilst the auto is stopped, that is high-quality. I am no longer going crazy with the giga-watt amp and subwoofer inside the back. , The one that vibrates rear view mirrors in a nine block radius. Except, who else wants to concentrate to something aside from rap? 5-27-2015: adequate i changed my mind i am going to put within the sub woofer. I just want a electricity plant for it! I think even though it is going to be ideal. Will preserve down the rear of the auto when drawing close a hundred thirty mph, give it that conventional spitfire rear quit sag appearance, and offer that thoughts blowing rap crap booming bass. As inside the vintage mad mag.... The woofer the shreiker the the ear splitter... I think i can put a baggage rack on the boot and strap this infant down with some of the ones top chinese language bungy fake rubber cords...... You realize the rubber that lasts 43 days. Warrantee on these bungee cords is 43 minutes so long as they're now not uncovered to air, water, daylight or streching...... If i would handiest bought that stratocaster for $200 years ago......
