Lovely work! Our Salmson had trouble with the gearbox input shaft bearing due to a misalignment between geerbox bell housing and the rear of the crankcase (the box was not the original to the car), and solved it by using a double row selfaligning bearing. It has done 70 or 80,000 km since then.

Lastweek the painted parts could finally be picked up.
First thing I wanted to do is get the instrument panels in place, so that the electrics could be connected and tested before the engine gets in the way.  As already mentionned earlier I decided to group all non-original electrics on a small PCB, hidden away in a box under the dashboard.
This enables me to keep the looks in the engine compartment as original as possible.  It contains relays for headlamps, stop lights, fuel pump, provides for a backup for the original Bosch headlight dipping unit, and direction indicators.  Every wire leaving has it's own seperate fuse.
It was a bit of a hassle to get all the wires connected in the small box, but getting there.
Rear lamp units and front direction indicators were assembled using LED lamps, as there simply was no way I could get old style lamps and fittings into the housings.  Only for the number plate lamp I used a normal 4 watt bulb, as that one is rather visible through the white glass.

Finally then the dashboard panel could be assembled and installed, and the bosh HS switch unit connected up.

The new Hella LED flasher unit was a hugh dissapointment though, as it needs you to put resistors in parralel to the lamps to get it to operate properly, which I find not acceptable, and wonder why they then market it a a LED flasher unit.  Another more suitable one has been ordered now...

Hope to get the headlamps on later this week...

Super work - I wish I had your technogical knowledge!
I have found that LED flashing indicators are very unreliable and would not bother with them - the saving on power is negligable. I have found that flasher control units work poorly unless you incorporate a normal bulb somewhere out of sight to provide extra resistance. I also found that the LEDs can pick up enough energy to flash weakly by induction from the ignition HT system! Because the current draw is so low, LEDs also are extemely sensitive to any poor contacts in the earth return, particularly if this is not wired and is via the chassis. Altogether not worth the effort.
