Mk1 Choke knob / warning light switch (on cable) wanted

#1 Post by TobyC » Sat Feb 27, 2021 9:30 pm

Hi All.
My early Mk1 has a Mk2 choke cable fitted including the knob at the dashboard and I've lost the choke warning light function.
I have bought a MK1 choke cable off ebay but I'm after a Mk1 choke cable knob and the warning switch that fits to the cable. An online search is drawing a blank. If anyone has one at the back of the garage surplus to requirements I'd be happy to take it off your hands and send some money to your beer fund for the upcoming lifting of pub restrictions. :D

I have a switch assembly here! Will see if I can find the choke knob.

Thanks Charles - Would be a pleasure to pop to Folkestone again and see your Triumph emporium!

I might even have those Mk1 wheels fitted soon - cleaned and painted today. New tyres to go on during the week and should be on the car next weekend. I've also fitted a (facelift) Mk1 steering wheel so she is slowly reverting to more of an original look. Still got to get rid of that damn ugly dash though ...

Sounds good! Found a rheostat knob, but not a choke!

lol. I might take that! At least it will be a Mk1 knob and I can get rid of the plain Mk2 knob I currently have!
