I have been restoring Scout for a year yet and have yet to drive him more than fifty metres into the garage. Can't wait to get on the road and test him out!

Simon!

Nice to see you back on the forum! I'd be interested to see how you sorted out your dash.

Great timing - am sorting dash out today! One major question - the main grounding cable that comes directly from next to the battery has to be connected to the dash according to my diagram but I am unsure where or how. Any help please?
Much appreciated.

Simon,

The screw clamp in the dashplate is where you attach the grounding wire .

Thanks for chiming in Barry - I was out-and-about all weekend and just getting back to the forum.

Simon,

Got questions, ask away - I just put a new wiring harness this Spring so things are still pretty fresh.

Brilliant thanks for note re clamping position - will figure out what clamp to use now!
Also there is a dangling loose cable attached to one of the positive terminals on the Lucas coil. Opinions and wiring diagrams differ as to whether this goes to ignition switch or to fuse box. Thoughts gentlemen please!

Simo,

The clamp is a no brainer, it is built in to the dashplate and there should be a slotted screw threaded into it which serves as the clamping mechanism.

Not sure about the dangling wire you describe however, You should have a white wire coming from the fusebox terminal #A3 and attaching onto the plus terminal of the ignition coil. Then on the opposite side of the coil a short white with black wire running from the negative terminal to the distributor terminal post. There should not be any other wires attached to the coil terminals.BTW, the 2nd fuse circuit with the #A3 and A4 terminals only becomes "hot" (energized) when your keyswitch is turned to on.

Left to die in an old garage, assumed by a family member to sit quietly for another 20 Yrs. Finally purchased by me. Many things to do but it's a got solid California bones and compression in the cylinders. I will keep adding to this post!

Well....I guess you are never truly "finished" working on a TR, but I am calling this one done for now! Just finished it a short while ago after a 5 plus year restoration...it's a blast to drive!

Cheers
Tush

Thanks Dave. Lots of videos on my YouTube Channel.....my channel name is cheftush.

I'm now working on a 1959 TR3A. That will be followed by body off restorations of a 1981 TR8 and a 1968 TR250 that are waiting in the wings.

Cheers
Tush
