Hi, I've recently been lucky enough to purchase a TR6 manufactured in 1972. I also own a GT6 Mk3 manufactured in 1970 right at the start of the production run (No.16) which I'm restoring. The GT6 has a hazard flasher switch. The TR6 does not. I have the Driver's handbook for the TR ,which I believe is the original, which contains narrative and pics that say/show clearly my RHS vehicle does not have hazards but that the LHS version does. Also, the TR has a headlight flash/dip switch in the footwell although the handbook makes no mention of this but does say this function is achieved from the column lighting stalk which in my case provides the three functions - on/off, side and headlights. The handbook says the light's on/off function is provided by a rocker switch on the dash to the RHS of the steeringwheel, below which should be the small square version of the combined wiper/washer control I've seen on other Triumphs. On mine both switches are the vertical oblong type, the upper switch is the wiper control, the lower the washer. The corresponding wiring diagram does show a hazard switch/unit. In the handbook the sketch diagram of the dashboard (as opposed to the pics of the instruments and switches etc) is exactly the same as my installed dash. It seems strange that a safety function such has hazard warning lights would not be installed on a 1972 build vehicle. As I'm right at the start of my TR journey if anyone has ideas, thoughts or even the actual answer to these anomalies I'd appreciate hearing them - I just hate not understanding/knowing! Many thanks, Paul
