Triumph TR3 - 1960 TR3A Wiring Diagram
I need some help. I have a wiring diagram from Glenn's Triunph Repair and Tune-Up Guide but it is incomplete. It does not have an Amp Gauge, and also shows wiring to the Temperature Gauge that only has a sending unit and no electircal connections.
Does anybody know of a good source for a wiring diagram? I have tried all the local bookstores and every manual that seems to have it is no longer in print. I have tried some of the books from Moss Motors, and they seem to only deal with the engine and body restoration.
|TerriAnn Wakeman has the following Lucas wiring colours listed in her web site for her 1961 TR3A.|
There are no wires to the temperature gauge on the dashboard in a TR2, TR3, TR3A or a TR3B.
There is a liquid-filled bulb which is bolted into the aluminium housing for the thermostat and a tiny tube with some spiral wire around it for protection that goes along side the block below the sparkplugs, then there are 2 to 4 loops before it goes through a grommet hole in the firewall and up to the gauge.

|Kenneth Ball's Autopress Ltd, Work shop manual shows the ammeter wiring as Brown and Brown with White, page 153. As Don Elliot says the temp gauge is non electrical.|

|Thanks for your help guys. I am going to try to find the workshop manual.|
I rebuilt my '61 using the Haynes manual. Although out of print, you may be able to find a copy by searching the web. It had a complete wiring diagram that I followed. It must have been correct since I got the car with the dash removed and had to put it together based on the diagram...and the car works. If you want, I can send you a photocopy of the page.
