Wiring loom

Post by Shaun78 »

Hi,I'm thinking ahead a bit on my restoration,just wondering about places to get a wiring loom for my 78 Australian,anyone had experience with autosparks or vin wire Australia,I was thinking about doing it myself but after costing the wire and connectors it works out just as cheap to buy one.

I’ve had an autosparks one (for an English moke) and it was pretty good, certainly looks the part, and came with all the optional bits of wire and connectors. Speaking of connectors, it’s best to check them all before installing the loom if you get one. Some of the bullet connectors on mine pulled off the wire when I tried to unplug them.
At least can add up

Hi, used Autosparks on Mini vans, Estates and English Mokes. Had trouble with Aussie looms. I used Vintage wire in Melbourne for my Aussie and Judith's Portuguese. No problems at all with either loom. Paul is excellent to deal with.

One thing to note. Paul uses BA9s bulb holders rather than the MES variety, makes life much easier, as BA9s bulbs are bayonet fitting they do not tend to stick in the fitting.

Glad to hear you have spoken to Paul. yes you will receive an A4 sheet with all the numbers and their function. When I got my looms. i sat down with each one and the sheets and went through them. Made life easier on the install, and everything worked first time on both.
