Black out lights/convoy lights
« on: March 17, 2013, 09:49:10 PM »
Not sure if that's the right name for them, but can anyone shed some light (no pun intended) on how they were switched? i.e independently via a separate switch (?toggle) or some other way?

any advice greatly appreciated
cheers, Daryl

ps:- I've got a S3 FFR

Thanks Scott, the two rectangular lights look like OEM LR? That switch looks like a rotary switch to operate the black out lights. The gauges are different to mine. I have a CAV Ampere gauge (lhs) and an Oil temp gauge (rhs).The middle one is an after market water temp gauge, which I'm looking to replace with an hour gauge if I can get one.

I've since discovered that the OEM Temp gauge does work so will remove the after market jobbie. I'll need an OEM sender though as the previous owner fitted a different one..

ps...wanna sell me your Bamford?  :)

cheers

Also worth remembering that on the series 3, the blackout light switches on the blackout/convoy lights, and turns all other lights off in one switch movement.

Hmmm, thanks for that. That'll make for an interesting wiring set up.

considering the close up photos and info this should be renamed S3 and sticky-fied for later reference.

One light is park brake, the other brake failure.  the round one is the trailer flasher (From the RPS)
