Re: Electrics: replugging and routing the loom

Thanks Charles. I will check the various boxes and bags of removed parts and fittings now I know what they should look like. Your photos are a great help here again.

Re: bleeding brakes

Does anyone know if there is supposed to be a washer for the pressure switch ? There was a poorly fitting fibre washer on mine that i had doubts about. I went to order a replacement from MGB Hive but they said no washer seems to be specified and they wouldnt expect there to be a requirement as no br...

Re: Electrics: replugging and routing the loom

Of the 2 relays on the inner wing I'm trying to work out which one should be closest to the front of the car. I'm looking for wire colours to recognise them as I cant tell what items they actually control as all the electrics are disconnected. One of the relays has a short wire with an earthing poin...

I've made up a simple test harness using a length of heat shrink tubing over each of the prongs on the pressure relief switch which also traps a thin pair of wires to run to the multimeter. Ive checked the switch is open circuit when pressed in and clo...

Re: bleeding brakes

I went to undo the pressure relief switch by 3 1/2 turns but it had already been loosened and only took a turn to remove. As others have said there was no brake fluid leakage when removed. Does anyone know whether I can now go ahead and bleed the brakes with the switch fully removed or whether the s...

Re: bleeding brakes

Thanks guys "You can't bleed the brakes properly until the electrics are working because there's no way of knowing whether the differential piston has been decentralized without the warning light working." Are you saying this couldnt be checked with a multimeter or continuity tester across...

Re: Fuel Pump Inertia Switch

Doesnt the fuel pump relay rely on a constant pulse from the ignition whilst the engine is running so hence the power to the fuel pump is cut immediately when the engine stops anyway. Or was this only standard on later B's ?

Re: bleeding brakes

Will the brakes be spongy or not be fully effective without this ?
