Re: Speedhut High beam dash indicator

It works! Wiring a 4 terminal relay to close with the ground signal from the dimmer, shuttling positive power through to the led.

Re: Speedhut High beam dash indicator

There is no room, and disassembling the gauge under warranty would not be my choice. The high beam led is a tiny one, you can see them on speedhut a website. The solution is indeed to wire a relay up to give me the positive signal from the negative signal as a previous poster said. I looked it all u...

Re: Speedhut High beam dash indicator

Ah yes. The old "wrong polarity" conundrum... You need a relay. The ground signal from the high beam switch is used to turn the relay on, (any handy +12v on relay term 85, hi beam ground to term 86) which then connects that same handy +12v on term 30 to term 87, that is connected to that pesky LED....

Re: Speedhut High beam dash indicator

Because the gauge has an led not an incandescent bulb

Re: Speedhut High beam dash indicator

I believe I tested all those wires on the round cannon plug that plugs into the stock instrument panel, the issue is that it’s a negative switching ground so there is no positive signal. Led’s Are polarity sensitive unlike regular incandescent bulbs

Speedhut High beam dash indicator

I’ve installed 7 gorgeous Speedhut gauges and the gps speedometer I ordered has signal indicators and a high beam indicator led. It’s a single blue wire intended to provide a 12 positive signal to the led when high beams are activated. But of course our Datsun have a switched ground headlight system...

Re: Driveshaft length

The driveshaft will be shortened and balanced at a reputable driveline specialty place here. Just have to get the length figured out. Think I'm on the right track now

Driveshaft length

Question. I'm getting ready to mount my driveshaft. 1970 Datsun 510 (obviously). S14sr20det with 5 speed. Is there any magic formula for determining how much I need to have it shortened? I.e. Distance from tip of trasmission output shaft to surface of differential input flange. I've slid the transmi...

Re: Brakes questions

I'm probably going to put a bias adjuster in because I like to vary the bias for different activities, and I'm putting a hydraulic handbrake in as well once I get the drivetrain in and install the trans shifter cover I've got coming from datsport. I picked up a universal pushrod kit and just had to ...

Sr20det install with steering cross link

Do I need to do anything with my steering cross link when installing the sr20. Have my crossmember flipped already but thought I saw somewhere that the steering link had to be changed in some way. Is that true?
