'78 Moke Bulkhead / Body Holes - What are they For?
« on: April 21, 2019, 10:00:01 PM »
Hi Guys,

I am up to running the wiring loom and battery/brake Lines for the Moke.

I am unsure about some of the holes in the bulkhead and what they are for. I have taken a PIC and numbered each hole, and put what i think they are for below....please feel free to correct me and chime in as to what you guys have used for each hole, as it was such a long time ago i pulled everything out, and of course i did not take enough pics of what went where.




Hole#      Purpose

1.  Battery Positive Cable
2. Rear Brake Line
3. Unsure of....was that for the wiper motor wiring?
4. Fuse Box mounting?
5. Main Wiring Loom
6. Speedo Cable
7. Choke Cable
8. Fuel Line
9. Rear Wiring Loom
10. Unsure...does that just need to be plugged?
11. Not sure of that clip...is that for the reverse lamp switch wires?
12. Not sure what that hole is for
13. Not sure of what that hole is for

I am also unsure of the 4 holes that are in the front of the panniers facing the wheel arches...are they used for anything at all or should they just be plugged up with rubber plugs.

Hey Guys...

I think I am pretty right with most of them, I may have had the rear brake and starter solenoid to battery wire mixed up (1 and 2).

Looks like 3 is not used and can be plugged, same with #10.

Not sure about holes at 12/13 and the clip/hole @ #11.

If anybody can help out to advise what they are used for or if they are used at all it would be great.

Cheers,

Gizmo

Hi,

#3 is used for the wires to the wiper motor from the fuse box an from behind the dash.

#12 or #13 I think are choke cable and heater valve cable holes

#11 the clip holds the fuel supply hose/pipe away from the exhaust pipe manifold.

Yes you did have #1 & #2 mixed up.

The holes under the guards are normally not used and can be blanked off with grommets, however some people have used them to run custom wiring to front lights or pipes from brake boosters located in the sidebox.

Thanks Terry...much appreciated as always.

If 12/13 are Choke and Heater than #7 must be an extra hole for something else...maybe I can plug that one then.

It did have a heater originally which was broken.

On my 1980 Moke.
12 is for the accelerator cable and 13 for the heater cable.
7 is Choke.
The clip 11 holds the speedo cable away from the manifold.
Whether that is factory spec or not, I have no idea.
