[Healeys] BN2 Wiring Begins

 I have a laminated BN2 wiring diagram to work from.  I sat one afternoon in my living room using painter's tape to label as many of the connections of the main harness as possible.  At least I can see what part of the harness goes on which side of the firewall.  I am guessing that I will be doing multiple continuity checks on the same color wiring to see where the other end goes in the case of multiple same color wires.  Just a hassle as I have no one to mine information from that has done this wiring before.  I am electrically challenged as it is.  Making sure positive goes to the red wire and negative to the black wire is the extent of my knowledge for the most part.Mike

Michael:  If you’re working from a BN1 wiring diagram, be aware that there was but one difference with the BN2. The flasher indicator in the dash instrument panel is wired differently. Best to check that you have the correct indicator first.
