Switches

PostPost by: drtarkir » Thu Dec 18, 2014 1:21 am

Car is a 71+2s US Federal. I am starting to make a new dash and I have 3 switches that are not identified. They are located on the left hand side mounted in the padded roll under the dash next to the odometer trip reset knob. There are 2 rocker rocker switches and one small button switch.

Also most of the lettering on my dash is trashed and I could use some decent pictures of the dashboard

Thanks

Didn't the 'S' have one fog and one driving lamp? and a switch for each?

Yup. Two rocker switches, mounted sideways, one for each of the two extra lamps.

And now I know what the smaller, round momentary push-button switch is for. Thanks, Gus. :mrgreen: Mine was unwired, so not clear to me.
