C12 PRS8 switch
« on: November 25, 2008, 06:06:15 pm »
Having just rewired my C12 I have discovered that my (original + unmolested) PRS8 switch doesn't have the internal connections as indicated in the useful data section.. Caused quite a bit of confusion + delay!
Anyone else noticed this?

Mike,

OH yeah. Been there..... the connections are not internal. They are "jumper" wires on the outside of the switch. So follow the diagram but use short bits of wire on the outside to connect to the the switch "screws". Yes it's a pain to get three wire ends into the little holding slot. But it can be done....

If you need more help just ask. I'll pass along what I've learned...

Has anyone else seen on e-bay, Item number: 270051577514, the PRS8 alloy escutchen plate that fits behind the switch purported to have come from a 58 C12? If so where does it fit? Apparently it's stamped OPH. I have looked at the BSA and Lucas parts lists and it's not listed in either and I've looked at photos of my original C12 and I can't see anything like it. Is there such a thing?
regards
John

It fits underneath the Knob, not the switch
Off- Pilot- Head- OPH

I purchased one of the PRS8 alloy escutchen plates from Domiracer Distributors
in Cincinnati, Ohio, U.S.A.  I used it on my 1956 C12.
