[DaimLan] Daimler Mk2 V8


(XKE67RR23) #1

I have been searching for a used parts supplier/wrecker
that may have a good condition complete indicator/flasher
unit for my 1965 V8. Does anyone have any advice on who I
may contact? I gather that the same unit was used in the
Mk2 Jaguar…is this correct?–

The same flasher unit (the metal can with three Lucar terminals, plus the case must be earthed) was indeed used on the Mk2 Jaguar and many other cars of the period before hazard warning lights came in.

I have a rather nasty modern equivalent on my car, which while it flashes the indicators and warning lights, does not make the click which warns you the indicators are on. It is made by Intermotor Automotive Components of Nottingham, England. Part No 58800. I have to say the first one I got did not work at all, but the local motor factor replaced it free of charge.

Sorry if my post was unclear but I am not after the flasher
can ! It is the whole unit mounted on the steering column
which is described as the flasher/indicator switch. From
memory it is shown as item #58 in the parts manual diagram
and is listed as part #C25555.Thanks for your consideration.–

I think these were common to all the small saloons.

Used ones come up on Ebay every now and then, and some of
the suppliers used to sell new units - at least that is
where I got mine from (I think it was barratt, but it was
nearly 10 years ago). When I bought mine I found that the
used ones on ebay were going for more than half of what the
new ones were, so I bit the bullet and sprang for a new one.

Manners lists them for 145 GBP + tax

Thanks greatly Andrew. In the absence of finding a good s/h
unit at a fair price very soon, a new part seems like the
logical way to go. Kind regards. Tom–

My aim from the start of the rebuild has been to end up
with a NEW 1968 S-Type - every seal, bearing, relay,
switch, wire or part with any sign of wear gets
replaced… I have bitten so many bullets that dental work
and ammunition are factored into the budget!
