YES, at optimum, all things being ok the needles will be vertical.

Re: A Day at Mission Raceway

Some random pictures. Ian's 510 for road racing, Brent's Time Attack 510, which did NOT run due to a vibration issue. The yellow wagon is Colin Jackson's and of course that gorgeous G35 is mine!

A Day at Mission Raceway

A Day at Mission Raceway We had all turned a little pale after sitting under the canopy for a few hours, avoiding the rain, as the mosquitoes had drained us of 2 quarts of blood each. The misty rain had soaked the track down much to every ones chagrin. There was no way Andy was going to risk the Cam...

2018 Summer Drive

Here we are heading into July soon and I have hardly driven my car I have been so busy. I have two thoughts on the first big drive of the year. #1 we go to Fort Casey again then work our way back up the old #99 highway like we did last year. #2 we head up the Hope/Princeton highway and go to Bromley...

Re: Turn signal flasher relay

Yah, if anyone is still running stock bulbs for really bright lights a relay would be the way to go..

Anyone with a battery in the trunk would have an easy go of it, as good power is right there.

Re: Turn signal flasher relay

I was over at the 510 today and did some quick testing. For sure, at full battery voltge 12 -13, my LED 1156 was significantly brighter than the standard 1156 bulb. At the turn signals, at 10 VOLTS, the LED was WAY brighter than the standard, which has an almost yellow glow to it, hence the dullness...

Re: Turn signal flasher relay

When I was at Andy's yesterday, that is EXACTLY what he suggested. What would be cool to do also would be to have a variable DC power supply...check bulbs at 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 volts, see what the brightness change is in reality. I know in my case, 8 volts to start, the incandescent was very dull. The...

Re: Turn signal flasher relay

Yesterday I went to try to get at my wiring harness's under my dash/steering column. I basically gave up as I just cannot easily strip stuff away now. My tach and wide-band are mounted on the top steering cover, then a nest of thermo-couple wires, methanol spray trigger wires, blah, blah, are in the...

Re: Turn signal flasher relay

That is GREAT, it does show we are losing voltage as a common theme in my opinion. You had said you cleaned your turn signal, as my question was, did you take it apart? I did not get over to my car today but am going over to clean some connections tomorrow. Yes, the jumper gives you stable voltage a...

Re: Turn signal flasher relay

Here is a snap shot of the flasher and turn signal part of the system. The signal flasher SHOULD have 12 volts at that connection, as that has come from the four way flasher switch. As I tested, it does, so the next issue is at the flasher butt connector ( at least based in this diagram) for any iss...

Re: Turn signal flasher relay

Of Course, what a good idea!

I am going over to the 510 today and do some cleaning of front grounds and take the steering column apart.

I will THINK about whether I will pull switch out.....

Re: Turn signal flasher relay

While I think of it, as Robyn and I try to figure this out, it would be great if we could get another few voltage readings from non messed with harness's, specially the voltage at that rear turn signal socket, left and right. If we see a pattern of low voltage, it kinda either speaks to a general re...
