  1. I always just use a large hammer. Hit the side of the casting with the hole in it right and the ball joint pops out.

    That's for the dim/dip resistor. You don't need it. I've just stripped that whole circuit out of my project loom.

    Your loom should have a Lucas bullet connector on the end of the indicator wire(s). As do the wires from the indicator and side repeater. They just link together in one of these connector blocks.

    Hence the careful and controlled use of the engine crane. I think if Ross wasn't worried about the paint he could probably just pick them up and plonk them on (with the tools out first).

    Those are for the door switches for the interior light. They feed into the bulkhead pillars to connect to the switch which is located in the door shut.

    Surely by now you've invented an over-engineered way of picking the boxes up with the engine crane to plonk them on the chassis...?

    Lucas alternators - .TR or .C8 ?

    Surely LRDirect would be best placed to answer your query.

    Very low profile. I am however wondering how long you're going to get away with having your winch rope party obscuring the number plate.

    Steady on Ross, it's looking like you might finish a distraction project

    VDO sensors for 200TDI?

    Senders will need to be matched to the gauge they are supplying. Really you need to figure out what the thread on the sender vs the thread in it's hole is. This may help - kit of common adapter sizes.

    Thinking about it, the white/purple-ish might well be the fuel pump feed for a petrol derivative - also touched on in my thread linked above.

    Well the only electronics in a 200Tdi fuel tank are for the level sender, which only uses 3 wires, as can be seen in your picture of the round plug. Your new loom seems to have 5 wires at this point, I don't know what for but obviously you don't need them so just tape the up out of the way. Unless your existing loom has a joint further up for the 3 individual connections to the round plug then it looks like you might have to cut and join the wires, or at least make up a piece to join into the individual connectors to avoid cutting your shiny new loom. The slate/red we have just done in my other thread here with a good explanation by Mr Hippo.
