Been having a nightmare lately trying to get hold of a Late Spitfire Indicator Switch Assembly, turns out Lucas has discontinued them, only place that has any left are rimmers and they want £84!!

 

So turns out an 80s mini indicator switch assembly is a direct replacement, wire colours are different but it works out the box.

 

Only difference i can find is the lever is 5mm shorter and at a slight angle.

 

The big bonus, the mini one is £30!!! thats a bargain!

Parts compatibility with Minis is very good as they are extremely well served parts wise - so thanks for that useful info!

 

Are the Dolomite, TR7 and big saloon not the same also?

I was up at Chic doigs, we couldn't find any similar triumph one to use, im not sure if they are in the same boat as the spitfire one and discontinued

 

The discontinued triumph part is AAU7994

 

The Mini Part is 21A2658

Dolomite, T2000 mark 2 range and Stag are interchangeable (but note the year of the car since the wiring loom plugs changed c.1973).

These are not the same as a Mini though.

 

I am not sure about compatibility among the TR7, Marina, Maxi, Princess etc but do know they are different to the Dolomite/2000/Stag.

 

 

 

 

 

I think the ignition switches are pretty much common to all.

TR7 stuff fits late spitfire column. Had to give it a slight tweek to get the angle right though, but not hard.

They were very cheap a few years ago, probably not now though....
