Re: [T3] time to do surgery on my 71 Fasty engine room

I've a  fair number of the wiring diagrams on my website -
www.hallvw.clara.co.uk/vwwiring.htm which will help.  I thought there was a
panel in the manual with the codes (Haynes certainly has) - ge(gelb) = yellow,
ro(rot) = red, gr(grau) = grey, gn(grun) = green, sw(schwarz?) = black,
we(weiss) = white, bl(blau) = blue, br(braun) = brown.... any more?

I don't remember the seat back being in the way too much - can only be right at
the bottom, and it's in a heavy outer sheath there, which I would want to leave
undisturbed if poss.  Jim's right about the removal - they're nuts on fixed
studs that hold the plates, and the seat hooks over a full-width lip at the top.

The Beetle engine won't be getting proper cooling - OTOH, if it's upright, I
guess the body is chopped about a bit already.
