Re: Turn signal flasher relay

I picked up my wiring diagram today and can see that you MUST have the 4 ways working first, as THEY supply power to the turn signal flasher, so that is good, mine works just fine. I will now trace wires and try to see what is up at various connections. It has been a bazillion years since I had the ...

Re: Turn signal flasher relay

Success! Yesterday I rambled on over to the 510, really wanting to get this LED/flasher thing sorted out. I am going to write this as I actually progressed through the testing. See if you fine mind electrical guru’s can see what is going on. My nice enlarged wiring diagram is still at my work, so I ...

Re: Turn signal flasher relay

As it was a pissing rain day yesterday I thought I would just lurk about in my basement, clean some things up, and then build these small wiring bits to reverse the plug in for the LED flasher. I also made a jumper wire as per Robyn's suggestion to just get a steady voltage to the rear, then I can b...

Re: Turn signal flasher relay

Did a small test this morning, just to prove to myself that LOW voltage is an issue with bulbs, specially with LED. I knew I had a small 12V. standby battery in my basement, and that it was getting really old. So, I check the voltage,10.9 volts. I then hooked up one of the new 1156 LED bulbs to it, ...

Re: Turn signal flasher relay

4 way works just fine! With factory flasher, did not remove it, too hard to get to. I am trying the left / right. Turn signals. I will try jumping contacts and check voltage at socket/bulb. I have a box of matches...... If it's raining and I do not go to Canby, I will maybe spend some more time tryi...

Re: Turn signal flasher relay

WELL..that was an unmitigated disaster.... :? So, with great care, I tried to get a long philips screw driver to undo the small screw holding the flasher relay to the steering column mount. Under my dash is not something I am proud of, a zillion wires added over 40 years of gadgets being wired in du...

Re: 2018 Canby show, June 8,9&10th, Clackamas county fairgrounds

I know I am a wimp when it comes to rain. I don't know if it comes from a life time of camping no matter what the B.C. weather throws at us....racing for 25 years in some events with a day of hard rain, where you HAD to be there for points....and, just being a silly car guy who likes my stuff to sta...

Re: 2018 Canby show, June 8,9&10th, Clackamas county fairgrounds

I see that has now been forecast, rain through the whole corridor from Vancouver to Canby, Friday, Sat and Sunday.

No interest in going if raining, not going to risk my car on I-5 with race tires on, let alone slime city for 12+ hours.

I hope to have my new LED lights in next week. I am going to re-Rain X my...

Re: westwood and race car pics

Thanks for posting that link up! Lots of both local and non-local notable drivers.

Even one picture that had Bob Steven's in the #7 510 in there.

That was a trip to the past!

Good, would be nice to have a bit of a convoy going down, for all the reasons.
