I'm not sure the commercials ever had trafficators fitted from the factory. I know the 1000s had a control box to activate the brake lights as indicators at the same time the sedans were still using t ...

On a 4 stud, measure across opposite studs to get the PCD (pitch circle diameter).

I suspect the ute has had the early hub/brakes fitted which are 4.5" where as the Torana & later Minor are 4". ...

Recessed original down into under dash section. I saw that done on Full Custom Garage, it's quite a neat trick if you have room to do it.

The alternator exciter circuit needs a 12v feed for it to kick in. You'll find it will self excite if you give the engine a rev.
The LED is a diode which only allows current to flow one way, in your ...

Rattle gun would be your first option. If you don't have one, beg/borrow/steal one.
You could make up a locking tool to hold the pinion flange if you have the time.

The wiring might seem daunting but it will all fall into place once you have it routed through the body. There's not too much behind the dash to go wrong & the colour coding should be correct on t ...

How about a thermostat housing with the sensor casting?

I realise this one might be the wrong angle but you get the idea:

Just use it as a junction box like how the later regulators are done.
It just looks complicated due to the fuses built in but the main alternator wiring bypasses that part anyway then you can just u ...

No replies so I guess everyone else is confused too.

I've only come across the rubber gasket between the bowl & the body. I've not noticed a gasket anywhere else nor have I ever needed one.

Trafficators would originally have been fitted low on the 2 door/convertibles. If there's no aperture behind the door, and you're not planning on fitting them, go for the later wiring loom.

If the car is only running a 948cc engine & Morris Minor or Major drum brakes, then the only reason I can see that you need to get an engineer involved with is the big wheels.

Wouldn't your car be a '56 if it had an 803cc and a central speedo?Series II with the centre speedo was released in late '54. The 1000 came about in late '56.
99% of late SIIs here are '55/'56.
