Hi, my indicators and general electric operation of headlamps, dashlights, indicators etc has been erratic, had a guy come round today, he spent a good couple of hours and seems to have rectified everything, Thats good news, just a couple of questions, bearing in mind my van is a 1980 G10 auto shorty.
1...... the
instrument cluster has three gauges, top temp, left oil press, right volts.
temp is fine, volts are fine, but if i turn the eng off the press gauge stays at the reading its on, until i turn the ign back on then it goes to zero.

2........select right or left turn signal ...all indicators seem normal , the front side markers flash with front indicators but the rears dont.flash at all......is that correct?
cheers and thanks.

Thanks Mate, my front ones flash, I`ll double check in the morn but I think the rears flash when hazards are selected.
Where are you at? I`m just north of Brissie.

Well it was beautiful then , I was in the NAVY we pulled in & local families hosted most sailors to their home. I met a girl there named Prunellia Hare, I will never forget her, an angel in human form....Love at 1st site. I was 19 at the time & almost jumped ship to be with her. Then her dad stepped up & took me back to the ship.

The memories you brought back ....thank you

Hi Big Time, -- and others --well we finally got most of the indicator issues sorted, all working normally but still both indicator dash lights flash when you select left or right turn,

also the fuel and oil press guages readings drop and `pulse` with the flashers. I am going to pick up a heavy duty flasher unit today and prob buy some new bulbs as well.

Hey Big Time, are you going to Ballarat Beat? Its a Rockabilly fest in Feb next year. I am bringing Lance Lipinsky over then we`ll do some shows here in Brissie.
