Working on the turn indicator switch on the 1967 Austin Healey Sprite today. I know I sounds like a broken record when I type out 1967 Austin Healey Sprite, but if I don’t then the search engine will not pick up all the information. I picked on up from ebay, hoping it would work. Well it seems to work, I have tested the wiring an its all connects and beeps the meter so at least I know the thing works. I you are looking for a new one you can get it from Moss Motors.
I got it mounted, but after a few months of the thing off, I had forgotten how the it went on. I forgot how the horn switch connects so here is a photo of how the connection works.
Notice how the horn brush connects to the steering column, I also needed to clean up the brash on the steering column to get the connection to work. It is still a little dirty in some spots that that will work its way clean over time. The hardest part of the job it putting the bottom cover on, it is a tight fit.
Now to figure out why the right turn flasher will not work, it must be low on turn signal fluid.
Update: Feb 10, 2013
Fixed the right turn signals! It was an easy enough fix, the rear bulb has a ton, well way too much anyway, electrical grease in it. I cleaned out the grease then went to check the front bulb. The front bulb was not even in its holder, I think it may be the wrong bulb because it was a very tight fit to get it in there. But after fixing both issues the signal started working again.
