Re: Push Button Turn Signals

Re: Push Button Turn Signals

Vendors sell the bulk wire and loom, but it can be a challenge to pull wire through the loom for any great length.

Re: Push Button Turn Signals

Sorry, my bad. I misread as including turn signals. Yes, it will work as only a brake light, connectiing both sides through the brake switch.

Re: Flickering turn signals

Sorry, was looking at some bad info.

The Runtz is simply a different resistance. The voltage drop across any resistor is dependent on the current through it. You may or may not see 6V out of it....

Re: Headlight Sockets

The black finish would have to be conductive - it's in the bulb grounding path. I can't guess its purpose. Maybe a dark metal plate?

The flat contacts mean crimped connection instead of solder. ...

Re: Flickering turn signals

These resistors are sold by most vendors to provide a sufficient load to operate the original thermal flasher. I think the flickering described in the earlier post you mention was caused by EMI from...

No modification, just straight add-on. Looks like about 50' coil of loose wire provided. I'd recommend cowl wire...

Re: Coil + or -

Quite true. Benjamin Franklin was wrong. Today's technical literature equates current flow with electron flow. However since most electrical theory was developed in the 19th century, higher level...

Re: Coil + or -

How do you define "hot" - positive or negative?

Um, Dennis, pencils are SHOCKINGLY cheaper!

Re: Wiring harness question

If you mean the standard one-bulb harness, it will be ok forward of the lighting switch, but the wiring to the rear needs modification for an extra wire to the right stop lamp, plus the brake switch...

Re: Small circuit breaker heats and opens

Read your ammeter on the dash for how much current is passing through the breaker. It should be rated at least 20 amps. Breakers are thermally operated and should be warm when activated. I've...

Re: Wiring for trailer

Untinned wire is ok if you solder all connections and seal them from the weather. LED bulbs are available to fit just about any lamp socket. 100 lumens is plenty for markers, 350 or more for brakes.

Re: Walter won't start !

The heavy ground cable is required only for starter current. From an electrical standpoint, it is best to connect it as close to the starter housing as possible. Beyond that, only a #12 wire to the...

Re: LED Headlights

I have to say I'm surprised - they look good. But then I haven't seen one in the flesh. Thanks for the report, Karl.

As for me, I still have 8 Eveready Mazda #1116's to go through, probably 20...

Re: Walter won't start !

If not weak battery or coil, jumper across start switch, may be bad contact. Also check wire connections at switch and coil for looseness. Also, coil should connect to generator side of ammeter...

Re: LED Headlights

Good question. There are cheap lights touted as headlamp bulbs but are simply bright/dim rather than proper high/low beam. These should be used only for combo stop/tail lamps.

The ones from Logo...

Re: Led Lights

Perfect explanation, Chris. :)

Go to a movie and note the difference between the light from the projector and that from the exit sign.

Re: Chickasha Pre-War Swap Meet 2019 Roll Call

There can't be another Chickasha. Legend has it that the town was intended to be named Chickasaw, after the tribe. But the postmaster couldn't spell and the immigrants couldn't read. So the sign...

Re: Mystery starting problem (or not)

To me it appears to be two unrelated problems. The first tripped the 30A breaker, which seemed to clear itself - perhaps a metallic short downstream of the OD solenoid which burned itself away -...
