Does anyone know where I can obtain a DPDT original hazard switch for an elan sprint?
NOS or recovered?
regards
Bob

Bob,

I bought some switches from Sue Miller, it was along time ago, but she may be able to help.

I think I remember someone in our group saying that Paul Matty had switches made for this appliction.

I will also be 71 this year, and have the same objective. When I started this restoration I wanted to drive the car to Classic Le Mans, now I will be happy just to get it finished.

Hi Richard
Thanks for the info. I'll try Sue, but have had potential offers from other forum members.
Ive owned my Sprint since 1972/3. Its nearly finished, having been taken off the road around 1975. Life curtailed the resto till I retired, the only problem now is advancing senility, and deteriorating mobility! I can get down to it but getting up is getting to be a challenge!
Regards
Bob

I supplied it from a stock of about 20 or so different ones, since sold as a job lot on here!

For any one who may be interested, I have used "Servisol" on all of my switches, it cleans the contacts and lubricates the mechanism very well.
