    hi all

    the engine bay trying to sort out wiring in the engine bay of sunnyjim (71 lowlight). What are the wires that go into the engine bay? I am not concerned about rear lights. that is all ok. Many years ago i did the genny to alt conversion. I seem to remember splicing a green and blue together

    black- i think would have been coil or 12v igntion switch
    brown- fuel sender
    oil pressure- what colour?
    alt light?- what colour

    Brown for the fuel sender (it's earthed through the sender). This wire souldn't end up in the engine bay.
    Blue/green for the oil pressure switch
    Light blue for the reg wire (may be different through alteration from gen to alt)
    Black to pos ignition coil (terminal 15)
    green to points from neg ignition coil (terminal 1).

    I think there are wiring diagrams on the Samba in the resource section
