Hi Andreas,

I don't know if this helps but these are the only wiring references I can find.

Hi Charles,
sorry, If I was a little missleading. What I ment was an original harness from one of your Chiefs.
It could have been one came with an original but unusable harness that'd be good for "research" ;)

How to wire the Chief I know, but not exactly, how it was done by Lucas. Although I've gotten much further thanks to Oran.

Ok I understand, one Chief is nearly rebuilt - a friend is rebuilding it for me not sure what is happening with the loom but I believe it was fine (-ish).

I will give him a call and find out.

Hi Andreas, the Chief being rebuilt did not come with a harness, and my other Chief is in storage and not accessible at the moment, soz.

Cheers Charles

Too bad. Do you know, when it will be again? Do you maybe have pictures?

I might be able to access it in a couple of weeks, I will try to get photos.

Have you asked Hitchcocks about the Super Meteor harness they sell and if it would fit a Chief?

I asked them for nearly everything, from photos to old pieces or basicly all kind of info, but according to them they don't have any!

Also, all the new harnesses they sell are new fashioned with crimped connectors and wrapped, instead of soldered connectors and braided.
So long,
Andreas

Gave a shot at seat No. 6. Until now it looks pretty good. This time I will just fold a small part and weld the sides to it.










So long,
Andreas

Yesterday was the only productiv day of the weekend! I was able to continue work on the seat and also the clutch. First I had to modify the sprocket lock nut, as I have three of them by now, that don't fit :o
So I made one fit and set it in place, the primary of course had to move for that procedure. But now all should be fine around there!





Then I removed the linings from the old friction plates and bolted them together with the steel plates(loosely, so alignment is still possible), to get a locking tool for the clutch. I also gave the basket some new friction linings and bearing cages, as the old ones were done for:







So long,
Andreas

Some retouching at the creases, finish the brackets (front one is too long, but of course already drilled  >:( ) and then rivet and weld. God willing (or whoever is responsible) I'll be able to sand blast and paint it the next week (I know, I do say that again and again :'( )!
So long,
Andreas

I had a friend come by and we checked the compression.... and it's GOOD.
The spark in so so but she fired right up with a shot of starting fluid.

When might I expect the wiring harness?
