Elan Dashboard Vaccum Switch ( Federal Version)

PostPost by: JMH » Wed Mar 29, 2017 1:31 pm

This is my spare switch which was never used. I would have bought it most likely from Chirstopher Neil Sportscars

It is a I belive a federal fail safe version ( a quick search of the forum will show up pictures of it ) and the various repairs that can be carried out on it

I used to have issues with Vaccum Headlamps on my Sprint which had a non failsafe the valve. These look slightly different and are shown as part 25 in the parts list, this switch is shown as part 26.

The non fail safe versions were discontinued and the these were the only ones available new ans sold as being compatable with the non failsafe system

I discovered it was a sticking manfoild valve not the dashboard switch and therefore have not used it

any interest please send me a personal message

I will post worldwide

I am in Aberdeen Scotland

John

John, definitely Federal as it has the plastic extension to engage on the micro-switches.

I have sent you a PM...

Does anyone know of a source of original micro switches or a near equivalent?

Johnson Electric Part # XGG2-88Z1 available from Allied Electronics is near identical. See the attached data sheet.
