Austin FX3D wiring diagram needed, New member here

Hello, I'm hoping for some help with our 1957 Austin FX3D taxi... I'm trying to find the wiring diagram for the diesel, if anyone has it to scan, I sure would appreciate it! I have the workshop manual, and also the manual for the diesel engine, but neither has the diagram, really hoping to avoid buying another manual for just one page... (I have searched all over with no luck, both here and the internet in general)


As for my introduction, I live in st louis, and am currently finishing up a "refresh" on the engine for my Austin America, which will take over daily driving when its back together. I have an affinity for the oddballs, but have recently added a regular old mgb gt to my collection of bad examples... The taxi is reasonably solid, but needs plenty of help. I have only recently found this forum, and look forward to spending too much time on here in the future!

Thanks in advance for any help!

I'm surprised that the diagram is not a part of the manual. Members of the London Vintage Taxi Association might be helpful- I can send the name of the American Section secretary. We have an FX4D, so I be of little help. Sorry.

T.T.

Yeah, it didn't occur to me either... The manual was printed before Austin started putting their own diesel in, and the later manuals had a "diesel supplement", which unfortunately wasn't included with mine. I tried to order the supplement alone, and ended up with the workshop manual for the diesel "in general". I should have everything I need except one single page, and that book (reprint) is going for nearly 100$! Really hate to spend that much for one page, I'm still keeping my fingers crossed someone may have it to post. Unfortunately for me, I am not a member of the LVTA, but that option has been considered. Thanks for the reply!
