Wiring questions

PostPost by: Cymru » Tue Oct 24, 2017 3:36 pm

Hi all,

The restoration project I have came without the wiring loom.

I picked up a used loom from a 130 S.

The question I have is - there are a number of things on the loom I don't recognize.

Any thoughts on what the items are in the attached pics.

Cheers,

Hi all,

Another noob question - sorry :-(

I also have this beast attached to the wiring loom I bought.

If this the voltage stabilizer this is a big box?

and - is this needed as the car I am restoring has an alternator and not a generator?

Many thanks,
