Jim,

I havenbt looked at my electrical system in years, so may be off base here,

but if the flasher unit is located over by the fuse box,  why not extend the

wires and move it under the steering wheel where that annoying seat belt

buzzer is located?   Easy to try without mucking up the original harness.



Relocating the unit closer to the driver may increase the sound level enough

to satisfy your needs.

Subject:  RE: electronic turn signal flasher



I have one of those electronic flashers with a mix of LED and incandescent

bulbs. Works fine. I found that to better hear the click, I had to strap the

flasher hard against a metal dash support with zip-ties to magnify the click.

Still canbt hear it at road speed though - I still look like the old guy

whobs too daft to realize his turn signals are on, so Ibd like a better

solution too.  I used the beeper thingy with electrical tape covering the

hole, but it was too annoying for me.

Wedge List / Change of model
« Last post by LesLie Farrell on October 08, 2018, 06:49:43 AM »
Hi all,

I have been thinking about changing my TR8 for a GT6 due to the escalating

cost of fuel.  This in effect is reducing my use of the car and the pleasure

of driving a british classic.

As lhd models are not easy to find in France or U.K. I am seeking your help in

pointing me in the right direction to be able to source one from USA .

Ideally I would like a mk2 in need of light renovation or re-commissioning but

not a project. If anyone can help in this regard I would really appreciate

it.



Best wishes to you all.

I ordered my power steering pipes and hoses through Classic Tube back in

February of 2010.  I was very pleased with everything and would highly

recommend to anyone that is in need of replacing their lines.  The contact

that I have from them is: 1-800-882-3711 and spoke with Mike Kreigbaum.  I

have no idea if he's is still with them or not.  Randy Tess was the TWOA

member that set it all up if I remember correctly?
