After a fruitless couple of hours last weekend trying to run the new rear section of the wiring loom down the chassis leg I decided i needed a stiffer draw cable…. Fencing wire. That should do it…. and it did, indeed, do it 🙂
The chassis leg has a bend in it, so as you push the loom (which is quite flexible) down the inside of the chassis, it gets to the bend and stops… continuing to feed the cable in just results in it coiling up just inside the chassis. Using a more rigid cable, with enough flexibility to be pushed through the bend did the trick and once it was installed in the chassis I could use it as a “draw wire”.
