Turn Signal surgery

Post by Franklyn » Mon Mar 19th, 2012 3:10

Decided to tear into my turn signal switch on my 49 plymouth,
As it had stopped working awhile ago, and recently started smoking while ignition was on!! :eek:

I'd rather have a car WITH turn signals, as opposed to a car without turn signals and burnt to the ground.

My beginner soldering skills produced a success this time ;)

Dont know how to make thse pictures smaller.... they look pretty large in my browser.

two of these wires are hanging on by just a strand, causing all kind of shorts etc. the black one (power lead?) isnt even connected and was grounding to the body.

Good Job!! Isn't it a great feeling of satisfaction to troubleshoot and actualy repair these things?
