MG MGA - 1500 or 1600 Wire Harness?

I have a '61 1600 in need of a new wire harness. However, my 1600 has the tail lights of a 1500. (Don't ask) Should I order a harness for the 1600 or the 1500?

Depends if it has separate indicators or a relay unit. If it has separate indicator circuit you need 1600, if it has a relay unit (silver box on the bulkhead in the engine bay) and flashes the stop/tail and side markers, you need a 1500 harness. If it is a 1600 I would put it to how it should be unless you are really hung up on the rear lights. That way you can have more visible indicators (even amber indicators as on modern cars, if you like - were standard on UK cars)
