    Default ID19 wiring loom: 3 fuse vs 7 fuse, why?

    Hello all,
    Is the wiring loom for the Heidelberg ID19 different than the non-Aussie early 1960's RHD? It seems the replacements on offer from the UK (Darrin at CitroenClassics) have a 7 fuse layout instead of the 3 fuses on my 1962 (well, actually 4 fuse design with #4 not being used).
    Before I splurge on a nice new loom I'd thought it prudent to get an opinion from the AussieFrogs brains trust.
    I can't take any hints from the remains of my loom as the rats have consumed it completely when they ran out of canola-infused hoses and the interior...
    Thanks, Erik.

    It sounds almost like the US layout. I*think* I have some earlier Slough diagrams. I'll try to find them and see what the fuses are. I think the 7-fuse layout won't fit your car at all- they're for the 3-dial dash cars (70-74).

    I think this is what you're after:

    Even if this is a US market diagram, converting to RHD should be dead-nuts easy. All IDs through that period had pretty much the same equipment. The fusebox looks like it's all for lighting.

    Thank you Hotrodelectric, this is the perfect answer to my question. Indeed, there's not much equipment in the old ID's, which makes things easier for the wiring-newbies like myself. Best regards, Erik.

    You're welcome. Ask questions where you need to. Stupid questions are cheaper to fix than stupid mistakes, and your first loom, even one as simple as this can be pretty confusing. Pro tip: it's all about paying attention.

    Cheers-

    An if you are making a new loom from scratch or even repairing and extending what you have.

    Spend some time in the planning and make yourself a "bed of nails" to get the cable length and placement correct.

    Covering the loom board in paper is helpful because you can make notes next to loom breakouts. Rubber bands hold the cables in place and are ready removed and replaced to add more cables.

    When breakouts get to bulky to manage place a cable tie around them. The ties can even stay when you bind with loom tape.

    Thanks Ian. There were some things going on, I wound up having to step away for awhile.
