Any body got a part number and or supplier of the early Sprint rectangular hazard switch or what it's the same as?


The 16v Slant 4 engine is more fun than the 3.5 V8, because you mostly drive it on the upslope of the torque curve.

B&Y 73 Dolomite Sprint UVB 274M (kids!)
1970 Maroon 13/60 Herald Convertable (wife's fun car).

Hi Graham, I think the original rocker switch part no is 520144 ?
How about the Stag part ?

I've found that this particular switch, if not used for a while, tends not to work! Even if it was OK when removed from the car! But it can sometimes be restored by the injection of some electrolube and a few minutes vigorous working.

Worth testing, if you can, before selling, especially the circuit across the 2 lowest pins that feeds the main flasher unit when the hazards are OFF, as this is the most common failure point.
