PDU, ha ha that’s fine. ;)
I’m juggling tasks today trying to get the RH Rear brake & Bisector back together & completed on the vehicle.
Had to run out & get the drum machined as it had a ridge & needed a skim.
I’ll post photos of the back of the ignition switch & regulator when I get back home

Cheers

Todays effort - RH rear brakes re-assembled after drum machined at our friends at Power Brakes. Had a large lip on the outer edge & out of round. Bisector & wheel cylinder cleaned & new seals fitted. The whole unit was frozen.

Wiring connections: 10/10 as far as I can see. Should be working okay. :)
Is it? :unsure:

Nice job on the brakes, glad I gained the rebuilt ones from my M Type chassis. Could not budge my original ones.

PDU - no not without the HOT wire arrangement.
I've still gotta try 600Dodge's suggestion/scenario & see if that isolates an issue.
cheers

I just managed to blow that wiring diagram up so I could see it properly, if that is the right diagram it is saying wire #4 is the hot side of the coil even though the list of wire numbers says #3.

Pierre and I have already noted this 600Dodge; although the loom supplier has it incorrectly marked as wire 3, it is the correct colour and is in the correct place (at both ends - coil and IG terminal of ignition switch).

The wiring all appears to be correct and I wonder if the ignition switch itself may be letting things down? This is the only place where the new wires are not actually making direct contact with each other. Time for the test light on the back of the ignition switch; possibly even at the regulator (unlikely there) and at the fuse contacts (my Austin caused no end of confusion until after several goes at cleaning the fuse contacts).

Bit of caution with the wiring diagram as that would be for the pommy built Bedfords whereas these here are Aussie built, with already one obvious difference being omission of the ammeter.

No, that was my fault mammoth, looking at the wrong wiring diagram . . . there are eight of them in the manual. :oops:

Wiring diagrams that is, not ammeters!

Don't panic Pierre I'm not taking over from you, it's your truck. :lol:
