Hi folks

 

I'm a new RH Exmo owner. Great fun had at back end of summer although as the darker nights approached I noticed my rear lights are not working but the headlights are.

Indicators are off too

Are these all on the same citcuit/fuse?

Hoping to play with this problem over my xmas hols

There are a number of other electrical issues for me to work through but lights are a badic requirement for me to enjpy safe road fun

I’d say that checking the fuses are the first thing to do. I don’t know if you have a dedicated kitcar loom or if you’re using the old Sierra loom but if you have a blown fuse it should be easy to identify visually. 
Just make sure you have the correct rating fuse if it needs replacing. 😁

Ok got indicators back on, loose plug behind the stalks

The loom for the lights is split into 3, left and right at the front and one to the rear.

I have brake lights but no rear running lights.

There are yellow feeds to the headlights and whites for main beam. I cant find a voltage supply in the rear loom when lights are switched on which will be my problem.

 

If I cant source where supply should come from would there be any issue taking a feed from the front light looms?

Just as an aside, take out the bulbs & make sure they work & are not blown, once spent an hour tracing a fault on a friends car because I'm sure he had told me he'd checked the bulbs but he claimed he never said that!!

Ok some good progress tracing the loom today. Found supplys to each rear light and one for rear running lights had no supply. I took one from the front headlights circuit and all good.

Reversing lights and foglights to sort next. And wiper motor and horn what a mess.

At least I can play out again now

      Hi folks.
      I decided that my Exmo needs doors for when it's cold or wet. And since I could not find any doors that fit my expectations, I decided to build them myself. I created a simple aluminum frame and put 2mm plexi glas on it instead of a soft cover. And while the ready made doors slope forward at the rear end,  my doors slope backwards from the lower start of the rear fender, ending just a few inches short of the top edge of the roll bar where my doors get fastened. Maybe a little heavier overall (2.3 kg/door), but they are sturdy enough to not shake when driving and they keep the icy wind out when I drive my seven on sunny days in winter at near freezing temeratures. And in case it rains and I have to put the roof on (that I am also about to fit to the car), the opening is large enough so I still manage to fold into the car (I am not 20 anymore 😉 ). But the downside is, that the doors do not fit into that tiny boot of the seven. If I put the doors on to keep wind and slashy water out, I cannot take them off during a trip.
      So I have to come up with another, more flexible solution for those summer days when I want to enjoy the wind around my head while it's dry but still be prepared in case it rains.
      Now I wonder if those ready-made doors would fit into the back of the seven. Can anyone tell me? That would be great.
      You'd probably be interested on how these doors look. But writing this post I reallized that I never made pictures of them and my seven just went away to get a new paint job. So all I can provide today is a picture to the right driver side door leaning against my garage wall. I promise to add better pics of the doors attached to my car once the car is back and put together again.

      I am rebuilding my Exmo, in a few weeks time I hope to reach the front end. When I put it together the first time I made sure that the wheels were squared up, in line, body in middle etc. It took a long time measuring before I bolted it all up. There were just too many measurement going on for me to consider caster, I just let things settle where the bushes seemed to take them. The result was even tyre wear, no wandering, no crabbing, BUT no self centering. I have skimmed through the 77 other topics in this forum that mention caster. I did not notice anyone making adjustments to caster on an Exmo. As I see it, I can't change the fore and aft position of the top of the strut because its trapped in the outrigger. The only way is to move the bottom by sliding the antiroll bar forward or backward. In principle a simple thing (I think) just move the two U clamps. I wonder if anyone else has tried this?. Is it worth making the mods so that it is easily adjustable, like mounting the u clamps on beefy brackets with a screw adjustment that can then be clamped firmly?. I am not confident that I can measure the caster accurately enough ? to say add x degrees of caster, so if its easily adjustable I can set it via a suck and see approach? If I over do anything then it could get dangerous and behave like a supermarket trolly.   Any insights would be gratefully recieved.

      Hi
      I'm wiring a new CBS prewired 'loom/fusebox' into my exmo after upgrading and adding a number of electrical fittings and accessories that were either missing or broken on the car (lights/horns/reverse/fog etc).
      It has been relatively straight forward tracing the circuits to the accessories and switches using a continuity tester and diagrams of the ford stalk switches attached.
      I have some general queries on the major engine component connections though and ask for comments and advice.
      UPPER 5 - shows wire to + side of alternator. The existing connection comes off a relay should I leave this?
      UPPER 6 shows a connection to the starter. This is the live feed to the fuse board, made live only when igniton turned?
      UPPER 10 shows a connection to the accessory part of the ignition switch, whats this for?
      LOWER 2 shows 2 connections one to a fuel pump (I dont think the pinto has an electric fuel pump?) and one to the positive side of the coil. There are only 2 wires I can see coming back to the existing loom from the coil and both go onto the rev counter (which doesnt work yet). Other cables from the + side of coil go into some sort of silver plate?
      I have an existing battery isolator switch wired up which I like. Where is the best place for this in the new setup?
      Thanks in advance for your thoughts
      Kris

      Hi all
      My original glass bowl lamps are very attractive but very dull is there a replacement LED lamp unit I can fit?
      The sidelight is non existant in the origibal lamp but the bulb and wiring is taped out the way so would be good to get a combo unit
