dipswitch position

Postby S.Carrington » Mon Mar 04, 2019 7:04 pm

Hello. Has anyone fitted a column mounted indicator/dipswitch/flasher from an MG or later Morris. I have a fibreglass gearbox cover over a 5 speed sierra box which makes the left foot space too narrow. So I have to work the dipswitch with my right foot when she is drivinghttps://www.mmoc.org.uk/Messageboard/posting.php?mode=post&f=4# :roll:

I had a classic Mini combined indicator, dip/full beam, headlight flash fitted to my Minor many years ago and it worked well.

I managed to find an indicator/ dip switch from an Austin 3l on eBay last year that has the flashing green lamp on the end like the original Minor one. There aren't many about but description was as follows:
Austin 3 Litre 1969 1970 1971 NOS Lucas Turn Switch 35986

I've not got round to fitting it yet, the clamp appears to be the correct size but body of the switch is larger and I can't see it fitting under the original cowl. It is a project for some point in the future to work out how to install it.
