Wiring Loom Question

Post by Paul Myall » 1st April 2020 - 11:01am

Morning all,
I have a basic model 1971 Fastback TA, it has the usual blanking plate in the dash where higher spec models have a clock. Is the wiring there for a clock regardless of trim level?

I would expect not as two of the wires would be live. As its only3 wires is simple enough to add yourself. The illumination bulb is wired from a bulb in the back of the speedo. The original clock power supply comes from the light switch. It will be easier to run a wire from the fuse box, fuse 4 with the large red wire going to it. ANd the earth just needs running to the earth post behind the dash.

Hope this helps.
