Sprint wiring diagram anyone?

PostPost by: sprintsoft » Tue Jan 14, 2020 11:06 pm

Hi,

I have what I thought was the latest Elan workshop manual, ?Revised Reprint October 1974?

The latest wiring diagram is for the S4 but this is missing the horn relay, the radiator cooling fan, and the alternator circuits.

Was there ever an updated diagram for the Sprint?

Cheers

I am no expert on S4, but my S3 has no horn relay.
Please find attached the one that was availabel through this forum, someone made the effort and did one in CAD. Better visibility than the original one, but still no horn relay, no alternator and no radiator fan circuit.

I never saw one for the Sprint. What I did was take a Twin Cam Europa diagram and sort of used that as a reference along with the S4 diagram. What I was interested in was the logic box for the turn signal, brake lights. I have never seen a wiring diagram for a Sprint that included that. Just my 2 cents,

Hi,

Thanks, I have seen these copies, they show the same structure as the S4 diagram in the manual, I?ve got that blown up to A2 on the garage wall.

Missing is also the heated rear screen, so 4 key items from a 1972 Elan are not shown....

Hi tvacc,

Thanks for the suggestion, I have got the Sep 1974 +2 130 diagram which does show some of the missing Sprint items, I?ll have to see if I can add these onto the S4 diagram.
