OK, guys and gals...what in the heck is the small rectangular thing right by the rectifier?? (under the seat) I have searched the wiring diagram...to no avail. I know it is a stock part (but it does not show it in the parts manual) because I see it in photos of Bacon's Norton Twin Restoration (Commando with the seat removed). It is on a 1973 Norton Commando 850.
Wiring harness is junk from being patched and altered over the years. New main harness coming from Commando Specialties!! I just dont know what this part is?!?! Two leads coming off of it. (I would like to know if it is necessary as it needs cleaned up and derusted at a minimum).
Is it some sort of flasher?

Any help always appriciated. :?:

Yep - until you put the lights on, then it becomes a monostable relay :roll:

Seriously - can someone point me in the direction of a less voltage-sensitive alternative?

Travnorton,
sounds like the lucas flasher unit.
it sits inside a blued springsteel clip.
the 2 wires are green and white if memory serves me right.
If you go signal delete you do not need this.
Britishwiring has the new relays.
I replaced mine recently from them and they are cheap.
The Norton part via Andover Norton have been bad and expensive.
Ella from Old Britts steered me away from them.
The batch they received about a year ago were duds.
British Wiring is in Penna and have a generic that works.

Norvil sell one that allegedly works on low voltage. I got one of these 4 years ago, and it works well, although I do have a big battery (AH) and so it has never probably had to prove itself.


062045P FLASHER UNIT - TWO WIRES TYPE - PATTERN - WORKS EVEN ON LOW VOLTAGE

I replaced all three of my Brit bikes' old flasher units with electronic Durite 0-606-00 relays, which flash at the same rate-regardless of wheter they are getting 'battery' voltage or 'charge' voltage.

The 0-606-00 is three pin, but can be wired as a two pin unit (R terminal not used) and connected either negative or positive earth.

I bought all three of Durite relays from AES, but they are now selling a Nagares unit which may work just as well?
