More likely 18 or 20.B  I would use 18 on the lighting and 20 for the fuel

level and low warning.B  If you have a heated backlight that will need 16

gauge.

British Wire carries the correct wire so you can get the appropriate colors

and sizes.B  They sell in one meter increments.

Wedge List / Wire gauge?
« Last post by impster@maine.rr.com on March 13, 2019, 05:54:13 AM »
I'm going to replace some portions of my wiring with new. Can't afford new

harnesses, so I'll only do those areas where the insulation is obviously

beginning to fail.  What gauge is the majority of the wiring?  16 ga?  I'm

presently looking at wiring at the rear of the car going to the fuel tank

and maybe some of the lighting,

Wedge List / Re: Speedo Cable Lube?

I think what I have seen recommended most often is a dry lube like graphite.

Wedge List / Speedo Cable Lube?
« Last post by Bill on March 10, 2019, 03:08:43 PM »
Listers,



Before I yanked the motor 6 years ago the speedo needle was starting to

oscillate a bit.B  Car has 65K on it so cable should still be good, if i

lube it properly.B  I may have used some sort of a wD40 or other lube on

it 20 years ago so stickiness may be the problem.



Suggestions?B  is it possible to 'flush' the cable with electrical

contact cleaner before re-lubing with...?



I have another new in box cable, what sort of lubes are best for that?

down to the last minor details before I fire it up for spring.B  Been 6

years.... yee haw!



Tia!



Bill

Well Terry you can understand why the switch comes in a Nissan box - nice

bit of negative information about a competitor :)

I would have wired in a bypass switch to over ride the interlock features so

you weren't stuck.  Then found a replacement brake switch that didn't suck.

That just adds one more reason why I'll never buy another Subaru.B  I've had two of them which had problems that should never happen to gently driven cars, and which I had never experienced in any other cars in my nearly 60 years of car ownership. Here's the partial list:- multiple wheel bearing failures (three or more on each Subaru)- piston slap on both cars- head gasket failure on Forester- now, brake switch failures
Geeeeze, almost as bad as our Brits, but without the cachetB
