Hi. I need your help. Please tell where can I find the fuse for the auxilary/spotlamps on my 1989 4/4. I think it must be a separate fuse , because I can´t find it in the fusebox.
Kind regards / Stefan in Sweden

Hi Stefan. I am currentyl looking for somebody with a 1988/1989 Morgan 4/4 because I had issues with a new wiring loom I got.

In theory if the Gomog page is correct this should be the wiring diagram for your car:
Wiring 1988/1989

I assume with Spotlamp you refer to additional lights (foglights)?

These would be on the blue-white (UW) cable according to the plan. In my replacement loom they are blue-yellow (which is long range to the BS-AU7 standard) and I believe correct. It is the red-black cable for the rear fog light.
The fuse for this is glass fuse inline behind the dashboard. Look for the red (or red-green....) to red-black cable fuse.

Would you mind sharing a picture of your main fusebox? I am restoring a 1984 - but the new loom I got is for a later model (at least I am strongly convinced that it is) smile

Regards
Tim

PS: the front fog / spotlights are fed from red-black cable for the rear lights in the switch (that is if you still have the original dashboard switches)

That's a lot of flying inline fuse holders you have there Tim. I'm guessing you will be labelling them for easier fault finding in the future.

Not suggesting it specfically applies to your Autosparks loom but when identifying leads on my LR one I found more than once a single lead had been woven into the main harness with a hidden loop back to exit at same point. This found when continuity testing with a multimeter. Some cable splits were similarly hidden.

As mentioned on other posts before - I believe the Autospark replacement loom (seen on the picture on my desk) is a replica of the 1988/1989 Morgan 4/4 (Ford CVH) variant. Hopefully Stefan can help me to get a prove on this with a picture from the fusebox cable coloring. My assumption is that it should like this (with a different fusebox)
If so - the inline fuses above should be also found behind Stefan's dashboard and hopefully his spotlight will work again smile

As I must do some small modifications to the loom anyhow to make the Autospark loom fit my 1984 model - I decided to replace all (but one) inline-fuses with a secondary fuse box for all lightning related fuses behind the dashboard.

Good idea to use central fusebox(s) rather than individual Tim. Surprised those spade connectors shown on fusebox pic and presumably part of Autosparks loom don't have insulated covers, my LR ones certainly did. I would be tempted to snip them off leaving as much cable as possible and fit insulated ones.

smile this is exactly what I did yesterday evening.

Thanks to Stefan (he sent me a PM) I now have confirmation about the fusebox
He wrote that in the "Completely Morgan four-wheeler 1968 to 1994" book by Ken Hill it is documented that from 1987 (chassis number C7268) all cars got bladed fuses.
Most likely - these boxes have the correct connectors for the one on the picture above.

As I could not find/get such a fusebox - I had to get rid of the unprotected spade connectors.

You could slip some heatshrink tube over the existing, it's worked for me before
