I need everyones input on this one (Combo and T/S switches)

Recommended Posts

I hope to make this a Sticky (Mike!!) I want to Document every S30 style combo and Turn Signal Switch. I need every one to see what is already posted and add to this Thread if you don't see your style of switches. With any luck, anyone can pick up a switch out of a box of parts and be able to cross reference it here and know exactly what they have.

I am now in possesion of over 80+ switches that I would like to start rebuilding for people and customers. Only problem is that there are so many styles that I am not totally sure of what is what. So PLEASE remove 4 screws from the steering column cover, take off the top and bottom covers and.........

Take a picture of....

1 of the top (looking from the roof down at the switches)

2 of the bottom (show the length of the T/S switch pigtail and the wires going into the T/S switch and the wiper switch.

Try to show as much detail as possible that makes your switch different from the others listed.

Make sure to STATE YOUR BUILD DATE!!! So everything can be properly documented.

Thanks to all who participate.

Dave.

The pictures below are of my 8/70 and the combo switch and T/S switch wires are clearly visable as are the connectors. large 6-pin on the combo and small 6-pin connector on a short pigtail of the T/S. and a 6 wire T/S box.

That's perfect Mat, is there a double black wire (1 small and 1 large) on the top of the headlight switch? And does the small black wire from the wiper switch go to the top of the headlight switch?

Thanks and keep 'em coming guys, the more, the marrier.

Dave.

Here's another ....

2/73 240Z

3 position wiper and usual everything else, long pigtail on Turn signal switch.

Also, I believe the combo switch sits on an upper angle (due to the 3 position wiper switch) as compared to the earlier 240Z switches that sit in the center of the metal chassis.

Come on people. Take 5 minutes to go take a picture of your switches. I really need a picture of an 8/71 and a top view of the 1/71, MATT. But I still need some more input from every one who can add to this.

Let's fill this thing up. If you don't see your switches on here, ADD them.

Thanks,

Dave

Dave - Between the ones I sent you and the refurbished one you sent back, I can't be for sure on the build date(s) of any specific car(s) they came out of. However, they were all from 280Z's. Sorry I couldn't be more help. Taking a picture of what I (re)installed in the car is pointless, as I'm not sure the date of the original donor.

But from the picture, it doesn't look like I was the only one who donated to your "illness"......

Wayne,

What is the build date of the Z that the refurbished switches work on. It almost doesn't matter what the donors came from but what the switches work on. So the build date and the needed pictures are NOT pointless, at this point. Everything will help get a clue on this thread.

So Pics and build date Please.

Dave: here a few photos of the switches I have.

Dan

What is the build date of your switches pictured above me? I know you have or have owned a 71' and 72' and a 73'. But which ones which.

Thanks again to all who participate, The end result should be something that everyone will benefit from, at one time or another.

Dave.

Dave: I named the photos with their build date. First two are 6-71, next two are 7-71 and last two are 5-73. I have one for a 4-72 but it is still on the column under a tarp and in the car full to the top with parts. Let me know if you need that one I can possibly crawl into the car and pull it out.

That's awesome Dan, I see it now, I just had to hold my curser over the picture for a second to see the date title. Thanks again, And I like I said, IF you're able to get that picture without too much hassle, then by all means, do. If not, don't sweat it, someone has to have a 4/72' they're willing to share with us.

Have you tried them on your Z yet? If they fit and everything works as it's supposed to and your Z is a 72' then that's what I need. What's the build date if they do fit and work?

Thanks man,

Dave.

Dave: I had to get something out of the car, so I grabbed to switch. Here are a few photos of the 71,72 & 73 next to each other. The 71 & 72 look very much the same as far as the wiring and switches, you can see the different switch on the 73 as well as the connector. I did notice that the white icons and lettering on the controls is different for each year. Hope this helps.

Dan

I still need top and bottom views of an 8/71 set. Does the T/S switch have the long or short connector? The early models have the short wires and the laters have the long lead.

But I don't know what the cut-off date is yet. So I'm calling all mid 71' owners for pics of there 8 or 7 of 71' swithes. Or even a detailed list of what goes where.

Thanks again guys, this will help all who need this info in the future, especially when you buy switches from Ebay or Craigslist and you want to double check what it is.

Any help is appreciated,

Dave.

That'd be me. I'm going to be in the garage tonight cleaning a bit more prior to Canby, will try to remember to pull the cover and take a couple pics. If I forget, you can prod me in person on Sunday.

Dave: The switch that I posted that came out of a 6-71 has the long TS lead.

Did you ever test it on the car? I ask cause it has a short lead on the T/S switch and so far, everyone else's late 71's have long tails on the TS. So it's throwing me off a little. I'm trying to make this thread as accurate as possible so any help is great.

By the way, if you don't mind me asking, What did you pay for the pair, on Ebay?

Dave.
