Ampage of underdash wiring in HR

Hi guys,

I'm doing a bit of wiring on my Hr, but I don't exactly know what ampage wire is used around the ignition, ie. the two main ignition wires. I was thinking either 10 or 15 amp wire, does anybody know exactly?

Regards,

Ben.

Hello H Bennett

My original workshop manual states on the colour wiring diagram that

"all leads are 18G (SAE) or 9/012 except
16G (SAE) or 14/012
14G (SAE) or 28/012
6G (SAE)
12G (SAE) or 44/012 "

Not sure what it means.

Hope it helps

Cheers, Alan

Hi Alan,

Yeh, that's what our manual says, I can't interpret it. Thanks for your help though.

Cheers.

That the SAE is the Society of Automotive Engineers. Means the Wiring is to their standards.

The '14G' stands for 14 Gauge Wire which can take a certain amount of current over a certain amount of distance, hence the fuses being in place.

Hope this helps
