Wire size
« on: October 20, 2010, 03:42:09 PM »
Hey guys, wonder if you'd be able to help me out <sure, which way did you come in!>

Is there a list anywhere of amps to application? i.e. Headlamp = 25amp wire, Horn= 15amp wire etc? I understand the US guage differs to the UK guage hence go by amps.

I enquired about a new loom to be sent over but again, the shipping kills it >:(

Making a new loom doesn't faze me- I have plenty of patience and still have the old one to copy and I can route it and adapt it where I need to  ;)

The wire gauge is posted in mm² in the wiring diagrams.
