if you can get a spare engine loom to dissect it's easy.... these are the connections at the plug on the inner wing... water temp 2 is the water temp sensor on the back of the water pump housing which controls the choke magnet.

Thanks Ian, that is a great help, I do have a few old looms, but worse case I could always make up a new one 0-0

I have now replaced the wiring loom with a thinned down version & removed the "Rats Nest":-

QUESTION? On the inlet I have only 1 connection point for the Advance/Retard Vac. I tried just connecting it to the Leading Vac & also both by using a Y connector & have not noticed any difference.................is there a best option?

The open space in the bay is now growing on me & having driven over 200 miles with them I do like the power delivery from low revs, the smooth acceleration/slowing down. Engine braking is non existent though.

I think that looks really great Pete.... I much prefer the clean look. My Elford also only has the one vac connection into the SU like yours which then splits with a Y coupler to each pot on the dizzy and mine works ok.

I like your functional detail work Pete. Never saw twin SU carb feeding an 12a rotary. Your outstanding car will be more and more exotic and in perfect condition.(c)
