Indicator arm

Post by Homewood » Thu Sep 06, 2018 12:18 pm

Can anyone give me information on which indicator to use on a mgb steering column with motolita boss ? I think people use a vw bettle but how is this attached etc etc.

Thanks

Hi Tony,
I just updated the wiki with a photo of what this looks like. Doesn't show the Motolita boss in my photo, but that sits on the splines of the MGB upper column, above the indicator assembly.

Can probably find more photos if you need.

Looks good do you have my more photos and what year the arm should be ? I don't need the horn switch.

Many thanks

Has anyone used a vw beetle indicator switch on an mgb column and connected up the centre boss horn push ?

I know Kenv on the forum is planning a centre horn push, but I think he has some high-tech solution in mind. Maybe worth PMing him to discuss!

I use an MGB indicator switch and a centre horn push.
