Getting the moke on the road
« on: April 10, 2010, 01:55:26 AM »
Finally got the moke running after cleaning out fuel tank
it actually ran pretty good however there is plenty of stuff that needs doing
 before going over the pits. The main problem I have is wireing most things work but it
last owner has used house wire under the bonnet luckey I have a mate who is auto electrician
may be easier to put whole new loom in has anyone used the loom that moke Australia sells as it seems
quite reasonabley priced.also as my moke is a 2 seater can this be changed to a 4 seater.


Regards JM

Well done on getting the moke running, rego and smiles soon hopefully.

The PO's wiring skills sound like they were some what lacking using house wire ???
I think a couple of the guys have got new looms from 'classic wiring looms'  link here http://www.classicwiringlooms.com.au/
and a happy with them.

As for the seating issues I guess the legal way to change the comp plate is to get an engineer to look at it, the thing is a moke has
captive nuts and seat belt mounts already in the back so in theory you could bolt in some front seats and belts and
it would be a safe as it ever was and probably as safe as an engineer would make it

Hi JM,

If you need a wiring diagram for your Moke, just let me know - I've got one I can email to you.

Hi JM,

Apart from the wiring, that looks like a pretty tidy Moke! ;) At least they used plenty of fuses. ;D ;D

A while back I found a choke wiring diagram on the net - but I can't find it again now. I do remember it had a lot of connectors and relays, probably to plug into their speedo etc. which is all different to original. Might be worth asking for a copy before spending any money? When I inquired about their new motors it took a few days for a reply - but I did get one.


Cheers, MD.

Hi Jm,

It is 900cc fuel injected and comes with new subframe and new drive shafts/CV's. They are hoping to sell them for $5500.
