I've taken advantage of my family being out for the day and got the parts for my Sprint inside for a sort through

Image

I've now got them sorted into Body, Chassis, Electrical and Powertrain boxes but I've ended up with a small number of parts I can't easily identify. They aren't necessarily Dolly bits but the cam with car.

Is anybody able to identify any of them please?

Pipe is the fuel pipe to the carbs- one feed from pump other 2 for carbs. The plate with 2 holes in it and i suspect a rubber pad is the heater hose outlet cover (screws to the bulkhead on the engine side.

Thanks Tony - I should say that the 3 items in the centre are pressed metal parts.

The wiring loom is off a manual non-overdrive gearbox.
The shiny metal plate retains the right hand stalk to the steering column before fitting the left hand stalk.

The unpainted bit is the clamp for the indicator stalk and the wiring is the gearbox supply (with the autobox inhibitor by-pass loop on the multi plug)

Ah ha, I've got the other metal part of that too - I'd mistaken it as a radiator support bracket!

The retaining strap has long since gone so what's best to use in its place?

Anyone need a non-overdrive harness?

This stuff here is what I used after advice from this forum, it's perfect. I cut it to the correct width with a scalpel and metal straight edge:
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Rubber-Pirel ... 8WmxjfnCug

I don't need that loom, but don't throw it. If no-one else needs it and you don't want to store it, I'll pay postage and keep it for posterity.

edit: Just remembered, the bracket you thought was for the radiator used to have a piece of foam glued on to stop rattling from the washer bottle. I binned what was left of that and used some high density modern stuff, non absorbent. The colour doesn't matter since it can't be seen with the bottle on. :)

edit edit: If the loom is going spare, Steve is more likely to find a useful home for it than me.

I don't NEED it either, but I will take it if offered, I have a hunch that someone I know wants one, just have to remember who! It's also relatively easy to convert this non O/D loom to an overdrive one if you have the right connectors (as I do)

So buy a metre, cut it into 3 correct size pieces and sell the other 2 on ebay as ready made straps at the metre price each! :twisted:
