[Saloon-lovers] Re: 420 heater wiring

In reply to a message from Don Dales sent Wed 30 Jul 2008:

if there’s no hole, and the black wire has the factory eyelet
connector, (aka Ring connector), it might also go under one of the
heater box bolt washers, the 7/16 or 11mm bolts that screw onto the
firewall, so drilling another hole might be unnecessary.

The original message included these comments:

Peter, thanks for the tip. I think it must be about the same place for the
420 but I can’t find the hole. Since the car isn’t a show car I’ll just
drill a convenient hole and use it.

''On my car, 1966 3.8S Jag, the ground wire comes out of a sleeve
that comes from the resistor mounted on the side of the heater box,
and the ground wire has a eyelet end that is screwed into the
firewall directly below the right hand corner of the engine/etc.
number and lubricants plate in the middle of the firewall.
I hope this helps.
