You could get two LED strips and put them inside the back windows. I see a lot of pickup trucks with an under the tailgate strip that should work.

In reply to # 29480 by rlincoln How do mount a center high mounted stop light (CHMSL in U.S.D.O.T.-speak) on a Traveller? Got my radiator back from A-1 Radiator, whose motto is "A good place to take a leak," and it looks like new. He cleaned it, fixed the leak and pressure tested it for $85 USD. Not bad! Next up is to replace the bushes in the rear suspension.

Sounds like a top job Ray and as I said earlier we need to keep these vital trades going by supporting them.

All the best Johnny

On the roof?
1 on one door, & 1 on the other door?

For my PU, I bought a 1' strip of red LEDs at Harbor Freight that are 12v. One at the bottom of each door glass would get the point across, and brake light wiring is conveniently close. In case, I found a small plastic strip that shaped like construction "Z" metal to hold the bulb strip and slips between the rubber and the glass.

We mounted a pair of led lights in the rear doors. We made up brackets that bolted to the hinges. Now they work for trafficators and brake lights. I can send you pictures Ray

This might not be suitable on a split rear door Traveller but it would be fine on a sedan. This one obtained from a local hot rod shop and fitted to my Jaguar sedan. With a little leakage around the edge gives a clear indication that is is working when viewed in the rear view mirror.

When I pull starter switch, the starter spins , but very slowly. Plenty of juice in the battery. Guess it's time to fit a new one

Are you sure all cable terminals are clean and tight? The gearbox to chasis one is often overlooked. Run a battery jumper cable from battery to engine and try again, if it works you have a bad ground. I also find that those replacement battery terminals get oxidized and need to be cleaned by disassembling, cleaning and put back together. I got thicker gauge cables for mine and also ran another one from negative battery to top starter bolt, you may need a longer bolt.

Crank the engine for 15 secs with the ignition disconnect
Check the battery voltage as you crank.

Less than say 10 volts at 14 secs suggests a knackered battery.

Feel the junctions in the circuit immediately after you cranked
if any are warm, then disconnect, clean, and connect.

A set of brushes works wonders for a starter motor.

A skimmed and then undercut commutator,
along with new brushes generally sets
a Minor starter on it's feet for a few years

thumbs down

Great ideas, everyone. I'll tackle the LED stop light issue as soon as I finish the rear suspension. Right now I have a sick dog to contend with.
