    72 Crossover differences

    It would also depend where the bus was built for. Mine was exported to Boston USA so as a crossover, low lights on the front, late rear lights, no inspection hatch and a Type 4 engine.

    wiring diagram for 71 bay

    My 71 was built for the US market, has dash wiper switch with two speeds. But deos have a mix of loom colours which made it interesting during its refurb. My advise is get a bus electric guru who will spot stuff straight away. Good luck.

    I renovated a 1971 crossover Westy and the electrics on mine were also a crossover between the wiring looms (let alone "the repairs" that had beem done). But nothing that couldn't be sorted.
