Wedge List / Re: More on Headlight Relays

Bob, there are two different style relays that look similar but have different colours, as you noted.  One relay is the standard Form C (a three-way with a Normally Open, a Normally Closed and a Common contact) and the other is a version that acts like two Form A (Normally Open) contacts with a common feed.  The relays referred to so far are the first type and quite common.  The good news is this is the type relay you need for the headlight pod.  The starter relay is the odd man out.



And each headlight pod operates independently and has its own relay so the fact that one is working and the other is not means there is an issue with the relay or the motor or the limit switches in the motor assembly.  The easiest thing the change is the relay so start there.

I've been using Shutterfly.com for years, and it seems to work pretty well.

Thanks to everyone who responded to my earlier message.



i would like to take this a little farther with your forbearance.



There are three relays on the right side of the fuse panel on my 80 TR8.  One

with a blue base is the starter relay.

There are two others with black bases.



My left headlight goes up and down.  the right one is content to stay down at

all times.  I have one original type Lucas Black round relay and one new

Standard brand relay installed.  No matter which base I put the Lucas in, just

the left side goes up and down.



Does this indicate that the relays could be ok and the problem is at the motor

or connections leading to the motor?

The TR7/TR8 rear suspension is an inherently compromised design.  The

angled upper arms and parallel lower arms do not move through the same arcs

and rely upon bushing compliance to keep from binding.  Fox body Mustangs

like my '87 Mustang GT have a similar rear suspension.  It's popular to run

polyurethane bushings in 6 of the 8 locations, leaving the soft OEM rubber

bushings in the 2 locations at the axle housing.  This preserves the

compliance required to deal with the bind issue.  Some install zerk

fittings and grease the polyurethane bushings but I prefer the Prothane

Teflon based grease.

Hopefully someone - dropbox, flikr etc will offer an easy way to migrate to

their free platform.

Then I guess lots of us will loose the pictures we're sharing with/to

others...

No way I'm paying for it!  So, consider my stash gone as well when they

try to charge me...

Did photobucket change their policy recently?



I've noticed photos in many online blogs and forums disappearing the past few

weeks.

I like flickr and it's still free.  Here's an album I put up when I was selling my Aran Beige TR8.
