Light switch question

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for a lighting switch for my TR4A, I thought initially that this may do but on second thoughts probably not:

 

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/361158800462?_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

 

The problem is that I can't seem to find a 4A switch with a chrome stalk - the 4A switch operates the sidelights and headlights and has a headlamp flasher, but presumably this switch is just a dipswitch and flasher - am I right ?

 

Thanks

Hi Anthony

 

I would say that switch is side, main lights and flasher, which should be correct for your car. I don't think it is a dip switch. Check your parts book/diagram to be sure

Many thanks, Bill and Steve.

 

It looks as though it should do the job, then. I'm trying to avoid the dreaded floor dipswitch so, provided this has a flasher, I can use a Hella changeover relay to make it work as a dipper.

 

The pic actually shows it as having a chrome stalk but, if not, I can always send it back or use a different stalk as you suggest. The overdrive and indicator switches are chrome stalked, so it has to be made to match somehow or other !

 

Cheers,

 

Anthony

Hi Anthony,

if you find it has a black stalk don't panic. The black may be heatshrink or a thin coat of paint with Chrome (or similar) underneath.

Thanks, Neil, but unfortunately read your post just after ordering the eBay switch ! If it doesn't have the chrome stalk (or lurking underneath, as Roger suggests), I'll get back to you - it should be here on Tues or Weds.

Just a note to say that the switch arrived today and seems fine - has the chrome stalk and the headlight flasher.

 

This came from Chase MG, but Neil above has a NOS one which may be of better quality than my repro item (not that there seems anything wrong with it).
