To bleed the brakes or replace the brake fluid, use a Mityvac®,
Motive® or equivalent vacuum pump and follow the instructions
provided with the pump. Remove the wheels first. There is a bleed
valve on each brake caliper.
NOTE: Any DOT 3 or DOT 4 or DOT 5.1 fluid can be used. DO
NOT use DOT 5. See Brake Fluid Ratings page 120.
CAUTION: Brake fluid is corrosive to paint. Use care not to spill
fluid on the finish. Any spills should be immediately flushed away
with fresh water. Do not overfill as it may cause fluid to leak out.
BRAKE FLUID WARNING BUZZER: A low brake fluid level
will cause a warning buzzer, behind the dashboard, to sound when
switching on the ignition.
Clutch Fluid – Adding, Bleeding, and Replacing
The clutch fluid is located in the remote reservoir on the firewall
(Figure 54).
[Figure 54 – Clutch Master Cylinder]
To bleed the clutch or replace the clutch fluid, use a Mityvac®,
Motive® or equivalent vacuum pump and follow the instructions
provided with the pump. The bleed valve is on the clutch slave
cylinder. Check the fluid level often and be careful not to suck all
the fluid out of the clutch master cylinder as clearing the air is a
difficult task.
Page 77
NOTE: Any DOT 3 or DOT 4 or DOT 5.1 fluid can be used. DO
NOT use DOT 5. See Brake Fluid Ratings page 120.
NOTE: The clutch slave cylinder seals have a tendency to fail
after several years. Consider replacing the slave cylinder every five
years as preventative maintenance. If the fluid is black when bled,
change the slave cylinder now.
CAUTION: Brake fluid is corrosive to paint. Use care not to spill
fluid on the finish. Any spills should be immediately flushed away
with fresh water. Do not overfill as it may cause fluid to leak out.
Engine Coolant
The engine coolant is a 50/50 mixture of anti-freeze and water. The
coolant should be filled at the header tank which is mounted on the
front of the engine above the water pump. Coolant should be
visible in the tank, but the tank should not be full.
Spark Plugs and Change Interval
The type of spark plugs depends on the engine you have selected.
Your engine provider should provide the spark plug specifications.
Plug type:
___________________________________
Plug change interval: Every __________ miles.
A reasonable spark plug replacement interval is every 12,000 for
conventional spark plugs and every 50,000 miles for platinum and
iridium spark plugs. Platinum and iridium plugs can last longer
than 50,000 miles, but the risk of seizure in an aluminum head
increases if they are left in longer.
NOTE: When installing spark plugs in aluminum heads, coat the
threads sparingly with anti-seize compound.
Ball Joints
On cars from 32 to approximately 150, the ball joints were sealed
and could not be lubricated. Later cars have screw in joints which
can be lubricated. It is recommended that the cars with sealed ball

Wiring Diagrams 1900 On
The Central Electrical Tray is located under the left hand side of
the dash. The tray is hinged toward the front of the car and latched
toward the rear. A loop and knob secure the tray. Remove the loop
and the tray will swing down to expose the components.
If your car has the Central Electrical Tray and the original version
of the dashboard, use the diagrams for car number 1041 to 1899.
If your car has the Central Electrical Tray and the new version of
the dashboard, use the diagrams for car number 1900 on.
The primary changes in wiring for cars from 1900 on are:
 Changes to Central Fuse Tray layout
o Main fuse type and location
o Fuse Box layout
o Dash dimmer moved to dimmer on switch
 Later style dash layout with changes to switchgear and controls
and heating and ventilation. See the new versions of the
Dashboard Layout, pages 23 and 25.
o The manual cooling fan switch is standard. The wiring for
the electric fuel pump is provided but not connected.
o Electric windscreen washer
o Dash light dimmer with Off position
o Three speed heater blower with rotary switch
o Heater/de-mister control via rotary switch
 Change from bulb type to sealed beam type headlights.
 Side marker wiring.
 Extra wiring for Australian cars - seatbelt warning, center
stop light, side markers, emergency flashers.
 Several changes in wire colors
Page 169
The wiring system has a number of harnesses and connections. The
Central Electrical Tray Harness is the main harness. The other
harnesses are connected to it as follows. Page numbers are in
parenthesis.

The wiring diagrams were first issued in August 2002 and last
revised in October 2008. The wiring diagrams in this section are
copyrighted by Canter’s Auto Electrical and are reproduced with
permission.
The Instrument Panel Harness wiring diagram was released
02-Jul-2008 by Hi-Tech Automotive. See Appendix B:
Instrument Panel Harness.
When removing any electrical component please note and record
the wiring positions so that it can be correctly reinstalled.
Because of continual running changes, the wiring in your car may
vary somewhat from the wiring diagrams presented here.
Detailed color coded wiring diagrams are available separately for
each of the three electrical systems. See Additional Information
