[Healeys] Questions of the day

Bob, I agree it is extra work, but I wanted to be extra careful and thorough, especially the first time I had pulled everything out of dash when I did the interior and had the dash panel out.  My wiring wasn’t totally stock.  Now, I would feel comfortable doing the job with just the wiring diagram.  Indeed, I went sans tape when I installed my second wiring harness.  Yes, second.  Don’t ask.  I also installed a fuse block and made an auxiliary wiring diagram.

On the contrarian side, seems like extra work to me.  I wired a bare BN2 chassis just using the schematic in the shop manual and going by the color codes.  Got it 100% correct, but one of the wires in the harness had the wrong colors and the rear turn signals didn't work right, so keep an eye out for that kind of goof.  Took a while to debug that one (even opened up the relay box).

Use blue painters tape

Easily removed

It won’t tear up the loom

I always use masking tape, cheap and easily written on with ballpoint, pencil or marker.

I have a good vacuum unit for a distributor with the markings 421943 and 7-18-12.  can anyone tell me the application of this unit?  Second question.  What is best to use to label the wire ends of my wiring harness for installation?
