Gents, I have perused these posts several times. Thanks for your thoughts.
Some follow-on questions:
A. What document(s) cite that only "green" was original; document citation needed if available. PM indicates no colors and no options/alternatives. As papajam always indicated, Alfa lit (1st deg) takes precedence over outside lit (2nd deg), to him. Is this "anecdotal" (3rd deg). That is fine if so.
B. Are the brown connectors on my original black/Bakelite set resistors or just connectors? That is not clear to me. They appear to just be connectors. The PM seems to show a resistor insert to the connector for radio noise suppression. AFAIK
, my car has never had a radio installed.
@VeloceOne - do they look kinda grafted like the picture of the green car above with the Bakelite thing attached to a long spark plug connector??
I have inferred answers as follows [xxx]:
1. Were these indeed original style - black w/ Bakelite?
==>[Maybe not, perhaps aftermarket Bosch, citation needed, A above]
2. Did green Cavis wires come on early (ca 65) Supers? In 5 or 7mm?? I read that 5mm were on 101's and 65 105's share some in common but later 105's took 7mm.
==>[possibly, see 1 & A. No answer on 5 vs. 7mm. Chris at Highwood indicated this differentiated 101's form 105's.]
3. Did any Cavis green wires come with the Bakelite end connectors ? (I ask this as from the ABB pic attached, not of mine, where it looks like original Bakelite connectors were cobbled onto Cavis green wires)
==> [VeloceOne says possibly but possibly not OE.]
Cheers all, B
4. Will I damage anything if I pry up the rubber end from the Bakelite piece? Is it a plug-in? I am considering putting the Cavis green wires onto the Bakelite connectors.
