    Any previous owners of JRR who can tell me what the left two of the three toggle switches do, and the what looks like a new chrome toggle switch far right side of the dashboard? Having a hard job tracing the wiring through.

    I think Derek put a new wiring loom on her. I can't remember what the switches were for but the passenger used to have a heater and so did the driver. I sold it 2004 so memory not good now especially as Derek may have changed things.

    Hi Derek, yes I will call with my list of questions soon, don't want to keep pestering you though

    It was late when I posted that question, I'd just finished renewing the fuel pump mounts (one had split in two, a pain to do as a rivnut was spinning in its hole) and taken another look at those switches so blindly posted without considering you'd of course know.

    Will call you today (Sunday).

    Cheers,
    David.

    Update - Indicators

    I managed to find out with Paul (Moorehouse) help that they are Rubbolite No. 32 marked as 6200 (used old Foden commercials) and I found some on eBay so have bought a couple. I don't think we'll be needing the lenses but it's handy to have two rubber bases as the current items are cracking and going hard. Pics here. The dodgy indicator was just a badly connected bulb. All fixed now.

    Update - Fuel pump mounts

    One of the rubber cotton reel mounts had split in two. I found some Facet replacements so swapped out both while I was at it. The old ones are hexagonal plates attached to rubber which is great as you can get a spanner on them to get them off. The new ones will be harder to remove as they are round plates. As is often the case, the new stuff isn't as good as the old stuff. The mounts are attached with the threaded end going into a Rivnut and one of them decided to spin on me making the task harder than it needed to be.

    I had to remove the 'glovebox' floor first which was a doddle, good piece of work that whoever made it.

    Not called Derek yet as got a few things to put on the list this evening.

    Did get the switches sorted out though. In the photo above, below the speedo they are, from the left;

    - Passenger heater/fan
    - Driver side heater/fan
    - Interior light

    The chrome switch on the right of the dash is for the cooling electric fan.

    The fuse had blown on that heaters/wipers/washer circuit. I suspect because the electric fan live feed has been taken off the same circuit and I'm guessing adding the amperage up of all that is more than 20. The wiring diagram shows 10amp there anyway, so not sure why there's a 20 in there, I hope not just because someone thought they'd fix a blowing fuse by upping the rating!

    I think the heater fans will be around 3-4amp, the wiper motor 1-2amp, probably a lot more (up to 10amp?) when it's 'stuck with ice' trying to move and then the electric fan switch will be drawing some although I see there's a relay there to kick in the high current feed so not too much. I've popped a 20amp back in, if it fails again I will have to get the meter out and read off the draw from each device then rethink. Maybe I need to fresh live feed independently fused for the electric fan/switch.
