|Couple of questions -|
I can't locate the turn signal relay in my box of parts, but I have the flasher unit. are both required? (1961 1600 Mk 1, LHD)
Is there a spare available for the seal on the plunger of the turn signal switch (that creates a pneumatic delay for cancelling)?
|Relay, aka "8 legged box" is not required on 1600, as they have separate lamps for rear turn indicators,|
I believe Barney has detailed all the tricks for the switch.
|There is no TS relay on the 1600 model.|
TS switch repair here:
|Thanks. I don't have the leather cup, so I guess I'll have to make one.|
|Anybody else made a new leather washer for the unit? Besides Rob Carleen's account on Barney's site.|
|Try soakinmg the leather cup washer in clean engine oil for a week or two gently kneading it every other day . I did this and my switch return time is quite consistent now. .........Mike|
|I have no washer to start with Mike - did you make yours from scratch?|
|Sorry Art - I missed a bit! Have a look at this site for making your own washers. They also sell a kit.|
|Thanks Mike. Just what I needed for the method.|
