411 wiring diagram.

I have thought that there was no specific wiring diagram for the 411 in club circulation and have had to make do with the 410 version.

However, by accident I came across the 411 wiring diagram which is appended to the 411 owners manual that can be found here.  Alternately you can find the 411 owners manual via the menu system of the website under “literature”.  Of course you do need to be a BODA member to see this otherwise hidden content.

I hope other members find this useful.

London Evening Standard

Nice article in the London Evening Standard today.

401 MPH100

I have acquired, for the Bristol Owners Heritage Trust, an article from a 1951 motoring publication. It is an account of a cross country journey of 550 miles in Tony Crook’s personal 401, MPH100, which seems to belie the claim that Tony Crook did not allow motoring journalists to test Bristols. There is an interesting description of how the 401’s front wheels were balanced using ‘ the first electronic wheel balancing machine ‘. Nothing remarkable in this article but might be of interest to some 401 owners and maybe others. I would like to share the article with any forum member who may be interested.

To receive the scanned item as a .pdf attachment please email a request to me at bristol@davedale.co.uk / bristol at davedale dot co dot uk. On previous occasions I have had many requests to see items that I have scanned. Please be patient and be prepared to wait for a reply as it is easier for me to do nothing until all requests have been received and then I can send out the scan to all, as one mass mailing.

Please don’t post your request to this forum. Many thanks.

Dave Dale.
