  1. Ah, Fair enough so... I’ll just wrap this connection up and move on to the next fire inducing conundrum 🥴
  2. Plain green, no trace. But there’s nothing in there to connect to.... .....is there any chance this is the green live I’m missing on the engine side for the reverse light switch? But this is so short there’s no way it’s feeding through the bulkhead.....
  3. I know what you’re thinking.... it’s him again! I have one rogue Green wire with a bullet connector behind the binnacle that has no home.... any idea what’s it’s for? It’s Too short to go anywhere else.... (EDIT: I only have standard dials, but it is ex military loom so maybe they had alternate dials, oil pressure etc?)
  4. Holy carp!! You learn something new every day. Must admit this did cross my mind... however my LT85 is a refurbished ex MoD box, and it had the wiring still attached to the gearbox so figured I was wrong 🙂 i assume it’s ok to find another power feed as long as it’s fused? (What amp rating is it normally?)
  5. I was follow this post as I had the exact same wiring question for reverse on my LT85.... But nowhere in the engine bay have I got the equivalent 2 wires (Green and Green/Brown) to connect the 2 gearbox wires to. I’ve only got 1 connector left free on the 8way block for the rear lights and that’s the black/blue for my diff lock switch (yet to be connected).... I just seem to be missing 2 connectors somewhere!! 🤯 Im more concerned about the Green (fused) one... as I can just run a separate cable back to the reverse light if needed for the other one. Are they different colors on the
  6. @ MikeD: Yip, seems I do indeed have a Military loom - and the connectors in the centre are mainly for the 6way Convoy witches. I got some assistance over on the Military vehicle forum to confirm this.... big thanks again to Dave over there for the info and the manuals confirming the above. The needed engine side connectors all do seem to be present on the engine side of the bulkhead.... However I did have the same thought on the handbrake cable 🙂 But I suspect the connecting wire over to the dash pod is just missing and ill have to run one over ......(there was a LOT missing 🙂 ) ..
  7. Slightly off topic (but related in my head 😊) I was follow this post below over in the Defender forum As I had the exact same wiring question for reverse on the LT85 but nowhere in the engine bay have I got the equivalent 2 wires Green and Green/Brown to connect the 2 gearbox wires to. Are they different colors on the Military loom by any chance? Because I’ve only got 1 connector left free on the 8way block for the tear lights and that’s the black/blue for my diff lock switch (yet to be connected).... I just seem to be missing 2 connectors somewhere!! 🤯
  8. Hi guys, I have an exMoD Santana LT85. Is the reverse light Switch also the diff lock switch (like on an LT95?) or is there a separate switch for that? If diff lock is separate, any guidance where that switch is? It’s probably me being a numpty, but have searched around and can’t find it... thanks in advance...
  9. Hi Hurbie, I dont have any extra switch in behind but I do seem to have extra wires (blue with red trace I think) So I think they were routed over separately sometime in the past. I have done anything with the headlights yet though as I’m installing a Boomslang upgrade harness first.
  10. Once again,this forum has totally proven its worth!!! Don't go to any trouble Dave, but if you happen to grab a pic at some point it would be great... if not i'll just have to work it out myself now I have the doc and the pic... Give a man a fish Vs teach a man to fish and all that.... 🙂 Thanks again
  11. Dave W - I got your PM!! Thanks so much for that...i'm sure that will help me a lot going forward.. Ref the above post. I assume you mean the brown wire (minus white trace) that's part of the 8way plug itself? (as I have a large brown feed roaming free separately also) And I seem to have 4 x reds in that plug (2 x 2 terminals) ... not sure I have a pink, but its dark and what I think is a red may be a pink Also, there is a second 8way plug - is that also military/convoy light related or for something else? (additional photo loaded, just in case!)
  12. ah, carp.... my mistake (as I forgot to upload them!!) ... attached here now....
  13. Hi guys, My (long) rebuild is basically complete apart from all the wiring (so, ah, no, not really complete). Its a 1986 90 with a transplanted 3.5 carbed V8 from a RRC. I'm Not 100% sure, but I believe my main loom came from a 1991 v8 110 snatch vehicle. So a few questions, sorry to pile them all into a single thread!!!: 1) Attached is a pic of some additional connectors which seem to be surplus to my requirements behind the cigarette lighter panel. I'm assuming those were probably connectors for the 6way convoy lights switch - is that correct or am I barking up the wrong tree?
