bit of wiring, the difflock loom is pretty easy , its all plug and play with the exception of the fuel gauge wire( purple with a black trace) which I broke into as it enters the fuse box, and the illumination (grey with a blue trace) which I broke into the dash illumination.the wire that feeds all the difflocking ( the black with a blue trace) just plugs in at the hazard light switch

These two lines... One is for expansion and one is for vacuum?
I am asking since I need to replace them as well.

Compliments on your build by the way. Secretly I am learning stuff about my syncro as well.

Smaller line is from the vent valves, the larger one is the air outlet to prevent gulping when fuelling.
