RHD S2 loom location

PostPost by: jabingb » Wed Nov 04, 2020 7:15 pm

After a mere 45+ years I'm finally reassembling my S2 26R and it has LOTS of holes in the firewall. Question #1 is am I taking the loom through the proper hole? I'd really appreciate a couple pixs of an S2 RHD firewall from the engine compartment and any additional thoughts of other penetration uses, thx.

Hi, here’s a link to a video I made showing the installation of a standard wiring loom on my S2. Hope it will help.

Paul,
Who was the source for your loom/harness, I realize you said it but didn't catch the supplier's name. I like the idea of a "custom" build with electric cooling fan option plus I'd like to add perhaps another one or two circuits for rear mounted fuel pump and diff cooler. Probably delete the headlight position sensor circuit as the S2 26R headlights are fixed.

I think Paul mentioned Autosparks on his You Tube.

These are really very useful videos from Paul.

I've just discovered this thread and the videos, which are excellent. Many thanks to Paul and all other video posters sharing their work.
