[DaimLan] choke light

Does anyone have a source/info on where to obtain the choke warning
light (c 11724) or the lense for same.
Also the lenses for the interior lights would be nice.

Any and all info is greatly appreciated, Thanks, mcdoc.

If you do a Google search on “Jaguar C11724”, it turns up several
suppliers, some in the states. Alternatively, I got mine from David
Manners
in the UK. (Google “David Manners” for details). From when Jaguar took
over Daimler in the 60s, all new models of Daimler use the same part
numbers as Jaguars.

Thanks Roger, I found it last night at D.Manners.
I did know the part #s are the same but not if any Jag ever had
the light. After looking at every light/lense I could find (at
Manners)I now wonder if the 6807 and c 11731 is the lense for the
same light???.–

Yes it was just the lens I bought, and looking at their web site, that
must be the one, 6807. It was used in the E type, the Mk 2 and
Rover used it in the P5 and P5B, their parts book lists it as
Rover part number 507798 and as Lucas part number as 319394,
along with the yellow and green lens versions. Rover used yellow
for the choke warning light, which is slightly better in that it has
a thermostatic switch in the engine water jacket so that the warning
light only comes on when the engine reaches normal operating
temperature. Red was for battery discharging and green was for
low oil pressure (the coupe has an oil pressure gauge too).

Thanks Roger, great info.
Now, if you should happen to know where to get the hood (bonnet)
insulation. My car has (sad condition) pad that looks like it would
fit the later (like yours) car. It has shapes for 2 aircleaners.
My parts book lists bd 26567 and 568 for the left and right pads.
Thanks again, Anders–

slightly off the topic, but I find it odd that the high/full beam headlight
indicator light in the speedo is red - in virtually every other car it’s
blue. i’ll get around to changing it one day …----- Original Message -----

I read somewhere that the Daimler company were the first to use blue
for this indicator light. They may have even had a patent on it for a
few years. The instrumentation and most of the car for that matter
except the engine, badging and crinkly bits are pure Jaguar Mk II.
Oh and the exhaust, rear valence and transmission tunnel.
As Jaguar switched to blue later, was this the only Daimler with a
red headlamp warning light?

There was a chap, in the Midlands or Yorkshire who used to make
these, he was into concourse in a big way but I can’t remember the
name.

Not that I am 100% happy with mine, the right hand one keeps falling
out, I may need to find a glue which will stick it in place sometime.
The Jaguar does not have them of course, but then they can suffer
from the heat of the engine baking the paint on the bonnet until it
goes dull.

Hi all,
Sorry for resurrecting this thread but would anyone know how the wiring connects to the red choke light, on my car at the back of the dash is just a hole big enough for the metal cylinder to push into but there is nothing to screw it to?
Cheers Steve.

All sorted now thanks.
If anyone interested I now have a spare h/brake-low fluid warning light available.
