Wow.. bit of a broad brief here Pete

- Are the instrument lights out as well? (Sign that is related to the fusebox, as these go out when your taillight fuse blows)
- Are front indicators still working? if so, can focus on rear loom?

My mate Mark runs Access Auto Electrical in Heidelberg West and did loads of wiring on my 67, including full rear loom. So knows his way around our cars if want pro opinion in your (approx) area

Thanks for the reply Deano. Instrument lights have never worked, never bothered me as never drive at night. Front indicators are out.
Will call Mark if needed but dont like driving without brake lights

If it is original LHD, I would suspect the indicator switch in the column. Make sure the connector socket is tight & that none of the wires has pulled out.

Fixed it ! It was corrosion on the fuse clips. I was testing the fuse with a Ohmmeter across the caps and all was ok. Ran a voltmeter across the fuse clips and only got 12volts on one side.
