Earl, while I have the highest regard for your Healey knowledge, I question
your response to Josef. The wire that runs from the generator to the F
terminal on the voltage regulator is covered w/ braided yellow with a green
tracer. My original unrestored1960 BT7 has this configuration, and the
wiring harnesses that I bought from British Wiring (which they import from
England) for the restoration of my three 3000 MKIIs come w/ this, and only
this wire, insulated w/ braiding. All other wires have vinyl insulation.
However, it might be possible that MK II 3000s changed to vinyl and British
Wiring did not make the change. What do you think?
