Default repairing loom wiring

Hello all.

MG Rover related, but ZR rather than ZT on this occasion.

Just wondered if anyone is knowledgeable on automotive wiring and could offer any assistance please?

I'm in the process of restoring a little Typhoon ZR 105, which, as per usual is turning into quite the mountain.

The car had a Clifford alarm fitted which may have caused problems for the previous owner(s), so some dreadful and dangerous bodges have been preformed.

I've gutted the car in order to try and repair it properly.

I'm trying to find the correct gauge wire for the central locking and courtesy light system.

Courtesy light wiring is 19 strand, strand measuring 0.16mm diameter.

The central locking is also 19 strand, strand measuring 0.35mm diameter.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Ben.

I find replacing bodged looms easier by grafting in a piece of loom from a scrap car, correct gauge and correct colouring to make the job easier.

Thanks Mike. Will have a look through their site.

Good point Andy. Not the easiest to access at the scrap yard, but worth a try certainly.

Thanks for replies both.

Remember to 'stagger' the joins when grafting in the new wiring, you wont get a bulge in the harness then
