I can see it sometimes, but if you go back for another look its 'empty'.

I assume its that big cluster of connectors up forward under the tank,
in the rubber sheath ? Thats a good question, electrical stuff doesn't
quite get a detailed enough page in the Commando parts book.

I'd run that by Andover Norton, they have guys that know that stuff - and
likely have it in stock. Send em the pic. ? (emails down below).

However, I notice that their new wiring harness notes "this harness contains bullet connectors, to replace the connector block".
With no match for 'connector block'

It will be interesting to see the final washup of this enquiry, since every Commando ever made contains a (now perishing?) rubber
connector block , and replacing the whole harness (maybe) seems a little unnecessary ?

It's a Lucas connector block as per Rohan, replace with 5 twin connectors.

That link doesn't seem to be clickable, but if you cut-n-paste the whole lot it works.
A Jaguar part.... !

That's 850 Mk3. The bullets don't replace the rubber connector block as the Mk3 doesn't have it.

1971-'74 Commandos, not all.
As kommando says, the block can be replaced with five 'double common' connectors.

The '71-'74 harness sections obviously have bullet connectors that plug into the rubber block.

Wow fast answers. Thankyou . I have several of those double connectors so I will use that fix for now and keep an eye open for the real thing . It is more important to keep the bike rolling for now .Thanks again

I'm not sure what distinction you are making here - so why does Andover Norton's pic of the harness say that ?

"Connector block" is perhaps misleading as the bullets replace one-half of a multi-pin plug, actually five seven plugs in all, two on the Mk3 main harness and three five on the headlamp harness (plus the sub-sections that would normally have the other half of the plug attached).
