I think these are what you want - eBay item 151665549816

Not me selling it, and no connection to the seller.

Thanks Nick.

I thought the electrical system was 24v?

The starting and charging is 24v, and everything else is 12v - there should be a connection from between the two batteries to the control box, in addition to the normal positive and negative connections. There is a wiring diagram and explanation of it all in the manual. Worth getting one if you don't have it.

Just a thought. If your Matador has been modified it could well be running 24V throughout. The 12 / 24 split was designed for the Military, but was not at all popular with the subsequent owners. The spilt system usually resulted in one battery being slightly more discharged than the other. 24V being standard through most of the bus industry, and the bus companies had access to vehicle electricians who just modified to keep the fleet standard.

When I restored mine I brought it back to the spit system, its ok for a preserved vehicle but is very convoluted with a insulated earth return system. Yes, its a live feed to the consumer and an earth all the way back as well.

If your Mat has items earthed directly to the chassis you can bet its 24V throughout. The wipers were made in 6, 12 &24V but often turn up in autojumbles.
