Yes, thanks Doug. It's what I'm doing.

Kevin, that's exactly what I've been hunting for.  Thanks much

Mike, make a set of jumper wires to extend your meter leads (alligator clips on each end).  It won't speed up the process but it will let you wring out the wiring by yourself.

That VIN is for an 81/82 Californian Moke.  The last Australian one was from May of 1982.  Email me the last few numbers and I can help you narrow down the date a bit better if you are interested.

it's got a standard  Morris vin tag, Cowley,Oxford, UK. left side of the carb riveted on the firewall : AKFPB19Y10XXXX==seems it's 14 digits.
Wonder what's underneath it.  

Meanwhile, I've found a Jeep motor that I might try to replace the wiper motor with.

thanks Tim. 
Still not seeing the 5 pin wiper motor, but I'll keep looking.

Bill, I forgot to check the vin.  Plate is new and top stamped so not too promising.

At the bottom of the page in this link there is information on Australian built Mokes.  One of those diagrams may be what you're looking for.

it's the one from Ireland. And we think it's not Portuguese.  Thinking it's from Oz.

There's not so many wires, but I can't reach from the passenger compartment to the engine compartment.

If you have a bunch of wires the same color, would a wiring diagram really help? Looks to me that a good meter and a late model Mini wiring diagram would help.

I am betting there are no wires for:

Dome light
Air conditioning
Radio antenna
Rear defog
Rear fog lamp







OK, OK, no help at all. (sorry Mike)

Anyone have a lead on a schematic wiring diagram for these damn Californian Mokes?  It's loaded with single colored wires of the same color.
