That is because this was built in the UK and they drive on the wrong side of the road!

I had a friend who had a TR3 built in the fifties that needed to be re-wired. He bought this from someone who had stored the car in a barn and the rodents destroyed the wiring. This took us along time to get it correctly wired because he insisted on a negative ground like his dads American made car. I spent hours at the local library reading up on wiring British built autos in the fifties to get it right.

I also did the same thing this winter, when I went to hook up the battery to run the electric jack. After hooking up, I noticed the electric brakes engaged after smoking the brakes for 3 blocks , I disconnected the battery and the brakes released. What's the problem there?

Check your emergency brake cable, it probably got pulled out of the socket far enough to activate the break-away mechanism. Pull it out, inspect and replace. This should help release your locked up brakes.
