    Default DS Cartier indicator relay

    Greetings

    Advertisement


    tinkering away today... decided to pull apart my Cartier indicator relay which, due to its very slooooowww repeat rate, I had replaced with an electronic unit when I had the blue slip done. It all looks very interesting inside.. nice and clean... so I notice the tip on the right which looks adjustable....hmmmmm... fiddle fiddle... test... blow me down it bloody blinks faster! HA! By reducing the gap between the two points it speeds up and vice versa.

    Needless to say I've adjusted it to an appropriate speed and it's back in the car. Why? I like the sound it makes...tink plonk tink plonk..


    Yeah yeah...wha effa!!

    Nicely done, Matthew. You're proving what I keep saying- these cars really aren't that hard to work on, it's just that they're a different mindset.
    The measure of your character isn't what you do when people are watching- it's what you do when they aren't watching.

    I find the bass tone reminiscent of Garry Garry Beers' work with INXS. That clanky vintage Fender Precision sound.



    As James Murphy says (presumably speaking about Cartier blinker relays) "You've got to set them up".

    Good work, Matthew.

    The Scintex indicator units on early Dees are just as adjustable and repairable.

    Yeah alright - it seems my over excitement over having had a brilliant day out in the D got me carried away. My comment is deleted and I would appreciate others doing the same.

    Apologies all round.
