I acquired a new Signal-Stat 900 turn signal, out of the box. I can find a wiring schematic on line, but.... It came with a 3 prong 6 Volt flasher, and the wiring diagram only shows two terminals to the flasher. Can I use only two terminals of the three prong? Which two?
With luck, one will be marked 'P'. That's the one you do not use....
You can use the P leg if you want an indicator light somewhere.
Having the same problem. Sorry I can't help. There will be great help here. Thanks to all who help with these kind of issues.
And there is a terminal marked P - Thank You
I'm wiring my oil lamps for brakes and signals on my '21 touring. I have added a second oil tail light. By pure chance and dumb luck I found a NAPA / Echkin part #LS6114 light socket snaps right into the oil lamp. Pop out the wick/burner assembly, and you have an exit hole for your wires where the adjustment wheel exited the lamp. No holes to drill. I have soldered a ground wire to the socket, which I will ground to the frame
Can the fonts be tightened? I'm tempted to put a set screw in just to be sure I do not lose one, or I suppose a dab of silicone would glue it into place also.
Before you put a lot of energy into front turn signals, think critically about when they give anything of value.
The first kits were rear only. Fronts were probably GM hype to sell new cars.
At Four Way Stops, which are quite common in San Diego, the front indicator is very useful to see which direction the opposite car is taking.
Yes, I know all the other drivers are idiots and you cannot trust what they indicate, but most of the time the front indicator is useful.
I'm pretty happy with the look of the front turn signals on my car. I don't know where they came from, they were on the car when I bought it.
Sandy Eggo has a weird street layout, thanks to all the canyons. Here in the orange groves (RIP), the streets are laid out on quarter section lines, and nearly all the 4-ways have left turn lanes.
No matter the situation, left turn is required to yield to prior arrivals. A left blinker just tells the oncoming you will yield, or you are about to do something stupid. Better to keep 'em in the dark...
Do the job Doug. Been there done that. Do they really effect how an unconsiderate driver will treat you? Frankly no but I always felt better that they were there. Here's a shot of my rears. Model A style from JC Whitney. Fronts are the same as Marks above.
X = Positive
L = Lamp/Load
P = Pilot (Indicator)
Depending on where you live and your street layout, fronts are very good. Living in Portland Or., many streets don't have a turning lane even at lights or between lights for making left turns across traffic.
