Wanted-tacho lampholders

Post by Old and Slow » Thu Nov 30, 2017 4:33 pm

Anyone have two lampholders for the rear of the tachometer I've been rebuilding the insides of?
They are for the indicator and main beam lights.
Here's a picture of where they go.

Never try and argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level, then beat you based on experience.

Found one (although it's actually an ignition warning light one based on the wire colours):

I've just checked, the plastic holders are indeed 12 mm dia. ID.
So if you are happy, we need to do a deal, and it might be safer to post it without the bulb.
Hopefully someone else on the Forum has one to sell as I need two.

Have a load as I'd replaced my instruments in the 6b and they look like the same fitting as the instrument back lights on those


SE4c rebuilding. SE5a similar it seems!

Thanks everyone for getting back to me; :)
However, I'm planning to place a big order with AES and it might be easier to get them from them:
Here they are:

Not very expensive, not sure whether to re-cycle your bits or buy new. :?

If it was me, I think I'd go new if doing an order with them anyway.
