Jessie the dog Posted April 26, 2020 Share Posted April 26, 2020 Hi all, I am moving into the electrics stage of getting my 1959 S2 onto the road. The car came with a box full of odds and sods and I am trying to make sense of what I have and what I need. Headlamps. They are a sealed unit so I have ordered some Lucas 553738 adapters so hopefully they will connect to the three pins. Sidelights & indicators - This is where it starts to get a bit more complicated. I have a selection of glass lenses. I assume the bulb holder is an earthed unit, so single wire. I am looking at new L488 bulb holders and rubber boots. Would these be correct for the car. As a couple of asides, the holes on the wing are vertical which suggests the wings have come off a military vehicle at some point? Also having tried a trial assembly, I push the glass dome into the rubber boot and then place the chrome over the lens. It falls off immediately. This wasn't done on the car. Is it as simple as that? Seems very loose for a LR... Rear lights. I have red glass lenses and red plastic lenses which are larger and have a couple of holes through them which allow them to be screwed to the bulb holder. The stop red lens must be dual brake and side light. Which is the correct assembly for my year? I cannot think why I'd have both... The bulb holder for the glass lens appears to be a L594 dual pole to accommodate the dual function of stop and side. Am I on the right tracks? Many thanks for your input.
