OT; 1940's turn signal switch

Post by modeltbarn » Tue Jul 16, 2019 10:35 pm

Does anybody know what bulb is used for the pilot lamp on a Yankee 960 turn signal switch? This is for 6V. It's a smaller base than BA15s but I don't know if it's a BA9s or something different. I think Yankee and Signal Stat would be the same, I'm just not familiar with them.

Thanks!

Gary, I use old 1940s signal stat #700 mechanisms inside old turn signal boxes from the 1930s. Those use a GE 1-5 It’s a very small bulb. Maybe that will work

Is yours screw in or pin type?
I know the voices aren't real but damn they have some good ideas! :shock:

It's a bayonet style bulb (pin).

This is the switch I used, and the lamps.
