Re: izzy's safari windows

Butty’s seals are stocked by Butty at https://www.buttysbits.com/

They are just the frame to body seals so you will still need glass to frame seals from your kit or separately from Schofields etc

Re: izzy's safari windows

Izzy was a popular choice ten years ago in the US but as far as I know isn’t doing them these days.

Wolfgang get consistently good reviews. Perhaps have a look at this thread if you want full details:

Re: Replacement ignition switch has 3 terminals - old one had 4...

Correct, 15 should be live so no continuity to ground if the ignition is on. A helpful discovery for me was that the indicator dash lights should be connected to the same relay pin as the indicator stalk which is terminal S on the old diagrams but has a number on modern relays. So if you have a 4-pi...

Re: Various Splitty parts to go...

I’m interested in the safari wiper bits if they’re in good condition?

I’m also after an ivory gear knob if you’ve got any?

These are invaluable by the way if you don’t already use them. The ignition is the unassuming little circle labelled D halfway down the diagram.

Re: Replacement ignition switch has 3 terminals - old one had 4...

Hmm, do you know what number terminals each wire was connected to on the old switch? Of yours in the photo Id be very surprised if the two reds aren’t 30 and 50. 30 is from the battery through the fuse box and daisy-chained via the headlight switch so you can tell that one as you can trace it straig...

Brown is usually earth. And unusual flashing and constant on/off instead of flashing can be a sign of earthing problems too. The body of the light switch earths to the dash, so you can swap the spade connector for a ring connector and link it under the screw that holds the switch to the dash, or you...

Re: One for the ICE experts...

There is exactly that, an RCA Y-splitter, available either as a solid connector or as a pigtail cable. Whichever type you choose you’ll need one for each channel. The purists will say you need a proper switch which are also available - they properly select one pair of inputs at a time and isolate th...
