Hi All,

I am working my 67 Spitfire renovations and need some help identifying some dashboard knobs and behind-dash wiring.

Questions on identifying knobs/controls:

1. There is a knob to the right of the windshield wiper knob. It works by push/pull and has 2 tubes coming out of the rear (1 tube splits into 2 tubes at a T intersection) - 2 pics attached. Any ideas?

2. There is a "switch" that can be only pushed to the right, and then springs back to the left. 1 picture attached. Any idea what this is for?

3. There is a knob to the left of the choke, it pushes in/pulls out. Last attached picture...Any ideas about this one?


Will keep Posts simple to keep uncluttered conversations. Next 2 Posts will have to do with Ignition, and then some loose wires/fuses behind dash.

Thanks guys!

Matt

Windshield washer pump.

The toggle switch? Heater blower motor.


3. There is a knob to the left of the choke, it pushes in/pulls out. Last attached picture...Any ideas about this one?

That's for cockpit heat; it opens or closes the water valve supplying hot coolant to the heater core.
