MGB Electrics

The MGb would mostly start well but other times it would seem the battery was dead. Click the key in the lock and suddenly it was starting well again. Must be a bad connection somewhere. All connections seemed ok, but the additional main power switch got very hot starting.

Replaced the switch( DDR-product)and it seems to work fine now. Also charging the battery was a pain. The car doesn't get used enough and the battery is in an awkward place to reach.

Now I've made plug on my charger so I can charge it from the connector in the dashboard. Now I have no excuse for the battery to run low. Yes I checked the voltage from the Alternator and that is fine too. Now I'll have to get some use out of this car before the bad weather comes...
