Instrument panel question(s)

I'm in the process of rewiring Jeffrey our 1970 500 and I've got a couple of queries about the instrument panel. A couple of the bulbs have gone, but I've got other suitable bulbs in stock, but one of the holders is also broken - one of the contact lugs has broken right off. I cannot find replacements on Axel Gerstl's site - anyone any idea of where they can be obtained, I've had a quick rummage on Ebay but they all seem to be the smaller type.
Trying to puzzle out exactly which wires go into which connector on the back of the dash as well - might return with a couple of photos later if I'm still in doubt.

Re: Instrument panel question(s)

Connector blocks on the rear of the dash panel - white one on lh side as you look at it, top left hand wire is this the earth (it seems to connect to 4 different bulbs and the fuel gauge). Red one on the rh side, bottom right hand connector - does this one go direct to the fuel tank sender (it connects to the lower of the fuel gauge connectors but there is no spare wire in the loom to connect to it and only one wire apart from earth to go to the sender unit) - bottom left hand connector - nothing in the loom to fit this (although it may be an earth as I've got 2 earth wires going into one connector still to fit).

Re: Instrument panel question(s)

Iím not familiar with the 500L dash as I have the old round speedo. There is a circuit diagram on Axel Gerstl site that might help though? Itís in German but shouldnít be too difficult to translate.

Re: Instrument panel question(s)

I have a 500L, and a 500L wiring diagram in English. If you would like to contact me direct I will copy it for you and post the copy to you.
tommontagu@yahoo.co.uk My son and I (mainly him to be honest) have re-wired my instrument cluster as I now have an "Abarth style" instrument cluster fitted, however. being he is a clever bugger, he listed out what wire goes to which terminal in the multiplugs so that we could match the factory multiplugs with our new ones (which believe it or not, they are an exact match to). I will dig his drawings out and come back to you.
