Fuses - Purpose, Use & Replacement
From Practical Motorist and Motor Cyclist  November, 1956

Whilst this article is not specific to the pre-war Austin Seven it may provide extra information, and/or clarify, that which is available from other sources.  Articles specific to the Austin Seven are in sections of The Austin Service Journal; and those written by our members are in Technical Articles.

NB:   Fig 2 is purely explanatory and shows a simple wiring diagram for headlights with a single fuse.  If a bulb goes and takes out the fuse, then BOTH lights will go out.  This is not good practice and a separate fuse for each headlight would be advisable.
