Fuse box location?

PostPost by: Tom D » Mon Apr 04, 2016 6:32 pm

As I've lamented before, my LHD Federal +2S came to me heavily modified, including the electrical system.

Can anyone tell me or post a photo of the original location of the (three?) Lucas 4-fuse boxes?

Thanks!

One final plea...does anyone know where their LHD +2S fuse boxes are located?

I've seen photos of fuse boxes on the bulkhead or in the passenger footwell, but I have no idea what is correct.

Thanks!

I don't have an S...I have a +2 so mine has the very small fuse box....this is located between the servo and the bulkhead on the flat bit near the wiper motor wheel......
I'll try to find a pic.....

Here's a picture of the 3 fuse boxes on my RHD 1970 +2S. Hope this helps...

After a bit of a Google i'm struggling to find any pictures of LHD +2s engine bays. BUT!! i found this LHD early +2 pic (i assume it's some one on here's car so i hope they don't mind me using it)

I'm no expert but it looks like the LHD cars have the fuse box in the same place near the manifold, with a bit of luck some one will post a better picture.

Thanks to all for the pics and info. I rummaged through some online pics again, and finally found this, for a car only a few numbers away from mine.

I'm assuming this is a more or less stock setup.

Thanks again.

Thanks for the pics. Based on them, I was able to actually find the original mounting holes.
