The necessary wiring changes are shown in the two diagrams for alternator and dynamo. Some rallies insist that dynamos are used. Note these are active pages that need Internet Explorer 4 or above. You can pan and zoom the schematic, and search for components. Please let me know of any problems. For those who do not have this software, please try the charts and tables below.
Halogen tail/stop 12v 35/15w at least twice as bright at the rear from Andrew Brock, Classic & Vintage Bulbs +44 2082990299. He also does the rear Number plate, festoon indicator and front side bulbs in halogen to make them more reliable and brighter. Be seen , do not be hit!
The following were done on the Javelin mainly by Ben Shaw, the only previous owner.
From Huntley Perry. The correct Jupiter tools and jack.
And now for ones on the Jup........
The Delorto carbs fitted on to slightly moved studs. The Javelin has an adaptor plate that fits onto original holes. Note the 65A Alternator for those Winter rallies. The Piper filters cost a fortune and were covered with vacuum cleaner bags in the desert.
The dash with Halda Trip and Speedpilot. Also note the twin temp gauges measuring both head temperatures. Two rev counters. The one on the column is so I can see it when racing as you cannot hear the engine even at 5500rpm. I guess the small steering wheel, map reading lamp, Velcro for pencils and stop watch, bucket and fire extinguisher count as mods. Horn push is in cigarette lighter hole so that is accessible by navvy, useful on Italian bends. Switch panel below oil gauge on the right for overdrive, rally lamps, washer and heater rheostat. Yes I know the heater has been removed for the desert!
Driving lamp combinations
Lamps- spot, head, dip.
Switches- new double pole, old wiper and heater.
max also acts as contingency for headlamp failure
Note knobs on switches are moved from original positions
All components have separate earth feed back to central earth point. They do not use chassis.
Other electrical mods.
