Colour Wiring Drawings (all Scimitar models)

Post by peter freeman » Fri Jan 09, 2015 5:25 pm

Owning to the wind and rain I have been drawing again - a bit of ( bad ) poetry.
My thanks to Jim King, Ian Leese and Peter Sunderland who have helped me with information which has enabled me to produce three new drawings for the SST/Sabre Ford engined cars, the SST/Sabre Nissan engined cars and the Sabre Rover K series engined cars. As normal much of this is guess work as the wiring was not the same from car to car but I have tried to get it as close as I can to what you may have, and have shown what we think is the difference between cars using ( for example ) dim/dip and those where it was not used. As usual wiring drawings can be found here -

I hope you will find it useful.
Peter

I thought it was too, but it doesn't appear to be - however it is now! :)

Note that the link gives access to all the diagrams, not just the new ones Peter refers to (and I've changed the topic title to suit)

Works fine for me - send me your email address and I will forward the drawing to you - three really as there is a full drawing plus two halfs which can be used back to back in a A4 laminated pouch to make it easier to see. If you have access to a A2 printer all the better.

I have used the SE5 diagram in the past with no issues (thanks very much, it is great).

But now I have an SE6A as well I have just ty'd to open the SE6A diagram and am just getting a blank sheet.

Just try'd some others and suffering the same issue.

Agreed, I've just tried several, and it seems to work ok for me? :?

They are fairly large (the se6a one is nearly 2mb) so could it be a problem with your internet connection?

I think the size of the file can't be handled by some browsers, so you need to download it then open it in Adobe Acrobat proper.
