[Healeys] Wiring Question

The regulator box black (earth) wires have an eyelet because, on six cylinder cars at least, they are fixed under a screw into the bulkhead, maybe the threaded hole in the upper right of your photo.


Cannot comment on starter solenoid question.

Subject: [Healeys] Wiring Question


     Wiring the engine bay in my BN2 now.  A little confused.  When I wired the Bugeye some 20 years ago I don't seem to remember having any problems matching wiring end terminals with the connections to the components in the engine bay.  If you look at the two pictures one is of a straight on shot of the voltage regulator with the cover off.  All the connections have been made except the three black wires that go to the screw on the right.  Easy enough to just cut off the eyelet and twist the three wires together, then shove under the screw.  My question is why is there an eyelet connecting these three wires?  The second picture (not real clear) shows another eyelet on the end of the white wire with the red tracer.  This wire goes to the blade connector at the top of the solenoid.  I can see that I have to cut this eyelet off also and crimp/solder a female connector for the blade connection (or drill out that hole and put a screw and nut in there for the eyelet), but why is there an eyelet on the end of this wire?  Did the original solenoid have a screw connection for the eyelet.  That would not be the case for the three black wires that connect to the voltage regulator though.  Just wanted to ask before I started snipping away here.
