Does anyone have an original early fuse box cover that they could send me a picture of? I think the part number is C12366 and it doesn't cover the horn relay.

I have purchased one from SNG barratt but when I come to fit it, it seems to clash with the wiring to the horn relay and also hits the battery input terminal on the dynamo regulator and would cause a short. I suspect that the lower edge should be cut off but the one I have is just a box with three sides.

There were 3 different types fitted dependent on the control box type.

Do you know what part number your control box is ?

Also post a couple of pics and I will see what I can find.

The control box is an RB310, will get some pictures tomorrow but basically its has three sides and a lid, the sides are all the same depth.

You may need part no C17492, do you know if you have the C48 dynamo ?

If you look at the parts book, your car year shows C12366, but the later cover was fitted with the RB310 control box and C48 dynamo.

There are some variations re the dynamo / engine, do you know which one you have and what is your engine number ?

Blimey, nearly fell over, what's the chassis number 200001 ?

You should have the correct part, but that seems to have a return on at least one of the sides ?

Hi, thanks for the information. Have emailed SNG Barratt will see what they say.

the chassis number is 210001, it is the firstl 3.8 built lhd and converted to rhd, this is all noted on the heritage cert. They didn't start making rhd 3.8s until a few months afterwards.

Wow, pretty historically significant car then !

The fuse cover C12366 is rolled over from the Mk1.

C12366 was used with the C42 Dynamo, and C17492 was fitted with the C48 Dynamo, there were two versions of the RB340 control box one for the C42 and one for the C48, I don't know why there would be a difference in the fuse box cover though, as the different control boxes would only have been set up for the different current ratings of the Dynamos so their size would not change.

The C17492 does not have the return edge on it at the bottom as per SNG images, but that is as far as I have managed to find out.
