Semaphore Turn Signal
Posted August 16, 2008 at 03:18 pm
I picked up another apparatus at a yard sale today, and between the two, I have enough pieces to build one complete unit. What I would like to know is, would the semaphore arm have been illuminated anytime the headlights were on or would there have been a separate switch? I've found a few trucks equipped with these here and there but the wiring was always destroyed or disconnected.
Assuming I manage to repair and install the thing, I wonder if anyone nowdays would know what it is for?

By the way, my internet searches have turned up very little. However, I have just looked at my signal again and noted that it was made by the Detroit Product Co. and is marked No. 221 E.C.D. I'm going to do some searching along those lines and I'll post back if I discover more.
