A quick update - the blue wire COULD reach across to the left hand uniselector (when they are mounted to the back board of the case) - but where it connects to is still a mystery!

There is a MK 2 wiring diagram here published by "Slotalot" which should help:

Thanks, I did study it before, but will check again in case I missed anything.

Having checked the 1st and 2nd versions of the manuals, it seems to me that the model I have has a rather different wiring design to those shown. Nothing seems to tally with the expected wiring connections - so maybe this is a variant that was made in the factory, or it has been modified somewhat (although there is not much evidence of rewires, etc). Oh well, I will have to delve deeper!

I'd hazard a guess that it was wired to suit the selector they had at the time.

OK - mystery solved - it didn't occur ro me that the blue wire actually connects to the blue wire feeding uniselector 2's solenoid coil, hence its length. I had assumed that the wire needed to be connected to uniselector 1 as in the diagrams, but in this case, not so.

Another one for the unusual variations file!
