LED bulbs for dash panel instruments

If you are sure that the spring clips have released, remove the glovebox and help the radio forward. More likely though is that it hasn't released and you are trying to move the radio and cage as a unit.

Insurance again!

And a perfectly good point it is too Mark. :D My comments were meant as a general checklist, not suggesting that you were in any way lacking in your research of course! Others may not be so aware of the shenanigens that the insurance companies get up to, if they think that they might get away with it.

Insurance again!

Another few points to check if important: cover for commuting, business use in person and the level of Europe wide recovery / breakdown cover if any.

EXCEPT 21 which goes to the idle speed control (Y14) and is showing 12v+ :
Many output devices are tied to the engine run or ignition live and modulated via the earthy end of it.

On loan for now, we can discuss things if you need it. I believe that ECU failure is quite unusual by the way.

Send me your address details and I will try to get it out tomorrow for you. Anything else useful?

Bogging at 4000 rpm

According to your list Y14 is the engine speed control - I have never looked at it to see what it is/or how it works/or where it is but it might be the Idle Control Valve. In that case Jim is more than likely right in that its a back emf diode - that is to prevent the valve ( solenoid ) chattering ...

se6 chassis and build progress.

Not the ignition lamp though, the alternator needs to have sufficient current through it. An LED may well stop it charging.

Bogging at 4000 rpm

That is because the German colour code is sometimes opposite the Lucas one. Browns, plain or with tracers are "earthy", for example a brown/yellow is the speed sender signal, against earth. Blacks are primary ignition control, tracers denote services from it. Red is unswitched live power. Mix that w...

black / blue signifies ignition controlled feed that is only live when the engine is running. I don't think I have come across a blue/black anywhere in the Ford loom.

Replacing rear brake cylinder

7/16" AF I think. Use a proper flare spanner though, not an open end type.
