Been busy the last few days. Change oil and filter, clean plugs, sync carbs and change rear drive oil.
I have had a turn signal switch that felt like thick molasses on a very cold morning. Plus when you pushed to cancel it was starting to pushback....
Soo, I pulled it apart and did some house cleaning. Not too hard. I have posted some photos of the project in my photos. One of these days I may get the How To, down. I only took it down as far as the photos show. Was able to get the crud out with electrical contact cleaner. Old hard grease under the washer and and the collar washer that acts as a pivot. Took some scrubbing and brake cleaner to get these 3 parts clean. Relubed with a little grease on a toothpick around the pivot and sprayed a little white grease down inside and put that puppy back together. Works like a brand new turn signal.
Don't be afraid to take this project on.
Any questions give me a shout.
