Rewire to direct lighting

Post  dalgrae on Sat Apr 29, 2017 2:30 pm

Hi I need to replace the main wiring harness on my 1965 model 96 as it is beyond repair I have read that most of these models were direct lighting but mine is rectified,I wish to convert the new harness to direct lighting for various reasons,I can see from the wiring diagram that the multi plug is slightly different on its looped connections is this the only change to the switch wiring and generator wiring as it seems to be the same other than this ,any advice most welcome

Regards. Colin

I think (someone will tell me if I am wrong) that the wiring is the same as the James M.15. of which I have a wiring diagram for bath AC & AC/trickle charge
Looking at the wipac spares list most AMC lightweights & BSA Bantams used the same switches 781 (lights) & 782 (ign). Yes there looks to be slight differences between the inner connections, but the part numbers are the same

Thanks for this,interestingly in the maintenance manual it states Provided that the negative battery lead is isolated no damage will be done to the rectifier if the engine is used wthout a battery provided you do not switch lighting to the parking position with engine running.
