Shift Light

Anyone know where I can get a shift light cover/cap, or another brand that fits?

I searched for the company that's listed in the service manual and just got links to several Stewart Warner sites that are under construction.

Thanks,

DMF

Stewart Warner is apparently out of business or something cause I've been trying to get one of their shift light gauges for months to know avail, lots of companies list their items but when you call they dont have it in stock and no idea if they'll have it again.


Autometer has some you can check here and/or call them for the specs and see which one will fit, I just called them yesterday and the service was great

Thanks Robbie, no need to bring it. Was just wanting to get one for my next night race. Last week ran at night and the shift light distracted me resulting in a missed shift. Ordered one from JEGS today.

See you Friday!

Dennis, did you try adjusting the intensity level, I think there are 3 or 4 level of brightness, check the set up guide on the step's to lower it for night racing

Thanks Noel, just didn't get around to reading the book. FYI, anyone interested, the Autometer cover is a perfect fit.

Setting the shift light intensity is a pain onboard the light so I wired in a resistor and a switch so that I can quickly dim it.

Sounds like a great solution. Can you share details/photos?

Thanks,

No photos, but an explaination should do. I removed the shift light and pulled out the guts and located the red and black wires feeding the LED array. I then ran a wire to a switch and then from the switch I ran the wire back to the light. Before running the wire back to the light I wired in a resistor I bought from Radio Shack...I believe I calculated and used a 50,000 ohm (but its pretty dim...great for night time racing), but you may try something slightly smaller resistor, or even get a three position switch and go with a 50K and a 25K for three different options. I mounted them conveniently and out of the way on the lower airbox tray on the side. Really easy to access with the airbox cover lifter installed.

Thanks for sharing! I've been looking all over for an explanation (Leeninfxstb). This is a great help for us experiencing the same problem.

I'm embarrassed to say, after reading the manual it is a very simple procedure to change the intensity. Hold the left button down with the power on and it cycles through its 4 levels of intensity. Release when you get to the one you want.

Thanks Noel!
