Even more rot

We've been making idle sotees into fathming the electrical faults but haven't come up with anything at present.  She still runs fine and starting isn't a problem but once the battery is attached the ignition is permantly on and the engine cannot be stopped without removing the battery once again.  Anyway, the voltage regulator looked a crap so we swapped it out as a matter of course.  It's all connected up again now with new connections and wires.  While attempting to find out why the headlights didn't work  found the reflectors to be utterly ruined; something else to add to the list.  We have also just purchased an Accuspark electronic ignition for Molly so we'll fit that when we next get a free weekend.

  1. You can use headlight bowls and sealed beam units from a mini - they are completely bog standard. The light switch itself is often a source of failure. It looks like someone has bypassed the ignition switch and connected the coil straight to the battery
