I'm getting all the bulkhead cables pulled through and most of the grommets are perished.
Does anyone know the sizes of the cable grommets needed?
main ones are throttle cable, choke cable, heater cable, speedo (looks like a special one for that)
I was thinking of using blanking grommets and hole punching them for the cables.

Be nice to have a dolomite specific set really

Cheers

Tony

I have just stumbled upon 3 Way Components, in Luton, Bedfordshire, who appear to be a useful source of Lucas - Rists bulkhead grommets and other automotive electrical components:

Just done a quick price comparison on the 3 companies noted for some wiring connectors and grommets I need for the Dolomega project and 3 Way Components, as posted by Nigel, are by far the cheapest! They also have bigger Lucas loom grommets than anyone else, I need some big ones for where the loom passes through the bulkhead on both sides of the car. I have 5 or 6 dash looms and these grommets are knackered on all of them!
