Maintenance and Modifications / Re: Converting SPI to Carb

Ok Iíve been trying to route the wires for the two new relays. Iíve been staring at your pictures but not confident in the orientation off your pictures.

Relay #1
Br/ R - 87
2 Br wires - 30
W/ R - 86
Bk- 85 (ground? This is the white pink wire I didnít have that you did)

Relay #2 (not sure about the order of this one)
W -86
Br - 30 or 85?
Br/ Gr - 87
Br/ P 85 or 30?

You have relay #1 correct.  Relay #2 should be as follows:

White - 86 (switched input from ignition switch)
Brown/Pink - 85 out to coil + (switched ignition to coil + feed)
Brown/grey - 87 out to fuel pump (high out to fuel pump via inertia switch if present)
Brown - 30 high input (to feed to fuel pump)

MiniDave
I answered your message on the stering column. I presume you want the shaft, column felt bushing and the brass signal collar. I amy have used the horn push on the Austin.
Aspen Snowmass probably out of the question. Would like to but going salmaon fishing in Alaska same weekend. Altitude probably too much for me anymore I use protable oxygen at 8300 ft which is really to high for me. There is a show in Alamosa CO On Labor Day weekend called Early Iron which is has about 500 cars but 99 % American. I think there was probably one or to English cars (jags)  so wanted to take it there but I don't know if I'll bring it back to Colorado this year. May leave it in TX.
Yeah the early cars and engines had some unique things. Hard to see but the damper cap is brass, Oil cap is metal. Most of the dated parts on this car are 11 or 12 /59 unless replaced. Light toggle switches are 5/60 but were missing and came from the Morris.

hmm the diagram with my relays have 85 as ground
30- high power feed
85- relay coil ground
86- relay coil feed (trigger wire)
87- high power output (open)
87a - Hugh power output (closed)

drmini, I'll take the speedo. That's the parts I need. Just let me know shipping charges to Bullard TX. Hopefully three speedos will make a passable Austin speedo.
Incidentally my fuel gage that came with the car had a cream face (with the silver dial) further ssubstantaiting that it was swapped out but retained the fuel gage.
Thanks for this.

85 and 86 are the terminals that operate the relay - 85 comes from the switch and 86 is a ground.

30 and 87 are the high amp supply and load.

Your notes have gotten me pretty far so far! I have deconstructed the sub harness I do have a question. On the part where you have #8
 
ďThe thick white with pink trace is the return side of the trigger for the starter relay - paired with the white/red in #7 above.  This wire is a color mismatch from the wiring diagram - the diagram shows it should be white/light-green (automatic transmission) or black (manual transmission).  The connection was confirmed by continuity test through the original relay box.  This white/pink wire will be re-used with the white/red for the starter relay.Ē

I donít have have the white with pink or black. There was a thick black that was attached to the smaller relay box connector. I have kept that with the white and red in case thatís the black one you mentioned.

Dave, I guess you didn't see the water drain tap on the rear of the engine in the photo either.  Another early item.  Anyway, here's a photo of the speedo if anyone is interested.  The needle came off and I haven't attempted to put it back on.  $50 if tsumini or anyone else wants it.
