I have a wiring diagram for my 1980 Coupe which shows a main 12 point earthing ring somewhere near the front bulkhead/steering rack ??   I need to find  (suspect poor earth for peculiar behaviour for certain gauges in instrument cluster).
 
Before I search aimlessly for this please can somebody give me a few pointers exactly where I should be looking.  Assume it is on engine bay side somewhere near steering rack?Huh??

Any help appreciated -

Thanks,

Andrew

IIRC if you remove the main speedo binnacle it's behind that, bolted to the inside of the bulkhead.

Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car. Oversteer is when you hit the wall with the back of the car. Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall and torque is how far you send the wall across the field once youve hit it.

Tou are correct Matt.
I know this for a fact as I've had the instrument binnacle out of my car more frequently than I've had the car out of the garage!

Thanks for the advice chaps -

I've also had the instrument binnacle off on numerous occasions in the past but couldn't recall seeing an earth point -  I'll have a look this evening,  no doubt I'll find it somewhere behind the spaghetti like wiring ......

Thanks again .........

I have also found them bolted to the steering support.
