Re: 17 amp cable for heated rear screen?

Thanks for all the help chaps, I’ll give 10 amp a try first and carry a 15 amp as a back up in case

Re: 17 amp cable for heated rear screen?

Test done , I’ve got 1.6 ohms across the screen so I’ve done the test and get 9.125 amps. Does this mean 17amp cable is fine with a 15amp fuse?

Re: 17 amp cable for heated rear screen?

I have been in touch with esm and they can’t help with the rating, just that’s it’s suitable for 12v minor wiring ?

Re: Colour?

Sorry for the late reply and thanks, I think somebody has given it a cheap spray job that looks lighter than the interior at some time which is now peeling off! The interior is original though so I’m going to re spray it in the smoke grey.

Colour?

Hi all, I have a 1970 4 door saloon that appears to be pale blue. I’m guessing it’s actually smoke grey but we’re any other light blues available on a 1970 saloon?

Re: Heated rear screen wiring?

Thanks Bob that sounds like a good idea and I will definitely be adding it to the system. Now I’m adding the heater rear screen I’ll be changing from dynamo to alternator and adding a few other bits, i.e electronic ignition and electric washers to start with. Would it be best to add another fuse box?

Heated rear screen wiring?

Hi all, I'm in the process of fitting a heated rear screen to my 1970 saloon. What is the safest and easiest way to wire it in, including adding a warning light or similar to save forgetting it's on ?

Re: Hardi fuel pump

Thanks for the reply Kevin, the tank was full. It seemed to be happening mostly when I was stopped at junctions, I’m thinking maybe fuel vapourizing I will reroute the hose from the pump to the carb and see if that helps.

Hardi fuel pump

Hi all, I have a Hardi electronic fuel pump fitted to my 1098 saloon. It’s a modern electronic one so no points but still ticks, which I thought was just for an authentic sound? Well today after a run it started ticking fast for a few seconds then slow again then fast again and so on? Would this be ...
