      Pretty simple. There are three small black plastic tabs on the LED socket, clocked at 10 -2-6, that need to be ground down about 3/32" to make the unit fit in the PL700 housing. Then I removed the thin metal circular shroud (deflector) from the inside of the casing.

      Cheers,

      • I dropped off my drive shaft for balancing. Technician said, "Someone put some cheap U-joints in there." Uh, that be me, sir. I got them from TRF, Moss or BPNW. Can't remember which, but it was before I knew to use the good ones. Whose name escapes me right now.

          Did you get the kit from Moss?

              No, I believe it came from Little British Car Company

                I did pretty much the same, but after lunch I went out back and shot my 22 a bunch...Tomorrow I'll go for a spin, maybe get some gas.

                  Wolf, can you post a few pictures of how you ran the wires? I did the H4 halogen and relays last year and I am getting the shoulda done LEDs feeling. I'm guessing these draw little power so you can use the original wiring.

                    Not sure if the pictures will do you any good as they are mostly concealed and buttoned up. The low amp draw was the reason I switched, (besides the brighter light).
                    I also added relays several years ago.

                    • Yesterday i took the plugs out and cranked it over until the oil pressure came up but could not drive it so I didn’t start it. I had an opportunity for a short spin with my 9 yr old daughter late this afternoon so after a long winter sleep it fired right up. A 10 minute trip was all but still fun and an appetizer for a longer trip tomorrow morning before the rains return. We have had a miserable spring in MI but at least today was good but i do feel bad for my Canadian brethren; my Ancaster (ON) based parents say that it has been horrendous so far...
                      happy motoring!

                          • Sadly, I parked it. Gave it an Italian tune-up after getting it good and hot, filled it with real gasoline, disco’d the battery and put it on a tender, shut the fuel off, cleaned it, covered it and said “sweet dreams, see you in April!” What a bummer...

                              • Actually, it was yesterday, but what I did was fix it. She developed the stuck needle valve or sunken fuel float syndrome on the way to work Tuesday morning. Managed to limp back to the hanger and later that day, upon inspection, gas was pouring out of the forward carb. Last night I performed "The Procedure" and now all is well, thanks to PB and Tush!
