Cobra information

Post by pietpetoors » Thu 06 Jun 2019, 20:05

I bought a used Cobra which I am busy fixing.

The Reg papers says Cobra Venom RT

I contacted Johnspeed Cobra and he said the chassis is probably one he built for Venom but they built their own bodies.

I am looking for a wiring diagram.
The harness is neatly numbered, but I do not know which is going where.

On the fuse box is a contact number which does not exist no more, 012-808-0558

I also need information about this wiper motor. Is a Lucas, does anybody maybe know what vehicle it came from?

Any help on this vehicle would be much appreciated. It was first registered in 2012.

that wiper setup looks like the generic system fitted to many British cars, prob most popular here on the old mini's.

Cobra's generally used the Jaguar wiper assembly, but as said, generic to older British Leyland cars. Also popular here in the older Land Rovers.

Took the wiper motor appart today, seems like I will manage to fix it. Just all the old grease are so sticky that it can hardly turn and it needs new brushes.

When rebuilding the wiper motor you can also check the small gearboxes at the wiper mounts. That grease gets hard too that can cause stripped teeth on wiper mount
