Default 3 way switch

Gang,
You guys have the resources. I need a switch that can be either 3 or 4 wires that all of them are not connected, but when you flip the switch, all of them are connected. It needs to be small. I'm trying to make a turn signal bypass switch to make a custom flasher hookup. Any thoughts?
Jeff

There are 6 lug toggle & rocker switches available. They are used for the Navigation light switch for boats. Down is for anchor or stearn light, center is off and up powers both stern and bow lights. A blocking diode is used when in the stern light function to keep the power from back feeding to the bow lights.

Here is a wiring diagram: http://forums.iboats.com/forum/boat-...sh-pull-switch

I need to make a switch to bypass the left/ right switch and turn on both turn signals through the flasher. Making an emergency flasher.

I'd do it just like that except I'd have only one turn signal dash light and would put it in the wiring right after the L on the flasher. Thanks!

Hey gang,
Thanks for the help. I found an old headlight switch that will work. It is one of those that you pull one click and the driving lights come on, the second click turns on the headlights too. I did some testing and found you could make it work as a 3 way by making only the second pull work. Got it all drawn up. Matched it to my 1957 turn signal switch so I can have a flasher setup that works but still looks stock on a pre-flasher car. I can use it on just about anything now. If anyone wants a copy of the diagram, let me know.
Jeff

Um, you're looking for a "stock" look on a pre-flasher car? This look you mention, what does 'stock' mean?

Let me take a guess, a 3 way switch hidden out of sight but easy for you to switch it on for left or right turns

The reason I say that is a while back, it may have been about 2 years ago my turn signal switch stopped working on my Volksrod, I found a 3 way switch a friend gave me to use as a turn signal switch on my rail buggy when I started driving it on the street, 1 side for left, 1 side for right and the center was off
I never did use it on my Volksrod because the left side started working about a week later, I hooked up a toggle switch for the right side, I still haven't wired it into the flasher so it's just on when I make right turns, better than no light at all
I never did used that switch on my buggy either because I used a switch from a 69 or 70 Bug and machined an aluminum housing to mount it on the steering column, I just copied the inside of a 70's switch mount and machined it the same, did the same for my 66 Bug's turn signal switch when it broke, I machined a similar type switch housing and used a 69 or 70 turn signal switch for it as well, those few year VW Bugs don't have the wiper switches on the column and made it easy to use, the 66 and 67 switched are much different and I couldn't find a used one back then

IF I had a big enough chunk of aluminum I'd machine a complete column for my buggy
