Today 'cos the weather was agreeable, I finally got around to removing the Clarion. It has never worked anyway insofar as it turns on then helpfully displays CODE and will take no further part in any proceedings!
A work colleague has agreed to help with installing a Nakamichi replacement so before he realises exactly what he has got himself into, I'd best make a start.

First off, what the feck is this???

Wiring diagram says it's a choke coil. What does it do and do I need to retain it?

Second question ... The red main power wire takes feed from the clock! Can anyone recommend a better power source

Dave,
The "Choke" (Inductor) was used to filter out/suppress high frequency interference which was caused mainly by Alternators producing AC current, modern systems have them built in.

As far as I remember, the Radio has 2 x pos feeds, one for the On/Off (normally Ignition Fed) & the other +permanent to keep clock/station settings etc.

Thnx Pete. I can see the two feeds on the wiring diagram. It's quite helpful that the radio wiring is still labelled (for the most part anyway) so that's a help. th:

Taking the power feed from literally anywhere else has got to be better than using scotchlocks :evil: Abject barabarism :shock:
