MG MGB Technical - Dash Rheostadt removal
|I have removed the dash rheostadt and have placed a manual choke knob in the hole. What is the correct way to bypass the rheostadt ? I have 3 red/white wires and 1 red/green. Thanks for any input,|
Cheers, Davy Crocker
|The red/green is the live feed from the sidelamp circuit, the red/white are the instrument lamps. The rheostat connected them all together when on max, so just join them all together.|
|Put bullet connectors on the ends of the wires and use a sleeve connector to connect them together. It will look like a factory junction.|
|Its funny when I put my dash back in my midget I just hooked the wires to the rheostat not in any order. Now I turn it one way that go out.The other way they dazzle me!! LOL|
|To D.Crocker - I love your spelling of "Rheostadt" - you and I must be the only ones old enough to remember Linda Ronstadt and, worse, confuse her with an inanimate object!Hope you got your other wires sorted out. Regards, John.|
|Ah yes, Linda Ronstadt, a foxy lady in her day. I still march to her 1967 Top 20 hit "DIFFERENT DRUM".|
Wires are sorted and dash insturments are brighter than ever. Cheers, Davy
