do i need a special amber light? where do i get one?
Thanks again brownbear
I have been having similar difficulties after my coil snapped whilst replacing the headlight switch after a cleaning.
I have grown accustom to just counting rather than waiting for "the glow indication" from the actual coil. I am concerned about the coils location in the wiring harness relative to the plugs; is a closed circuit required across the glow coil? or is the system merely a peripheral, parallel circuit? I dont recall whether the coil is connected at this point (by simply extending the broken wires of the coil toward one another) or not.
Does someone have a wiring diagram for a 78 BJ40 handy. Mine chasis manual is for the "superglow" system that was in later models I believe.
Also, realize the thread has been dead for quite some time. Sorry bout that.
