Turn signal flashing very fast

Recently the turn signal started flashing very fast similar to when a bulb is out. A visual check indicates all bulbs are OK. When the emergency flasher is turned on it flashes properly. Any idea as to what is causing this issue. Thank you. 

1973 914 electrical issues

My left turn signal lights up both left and right turn lights.  My gas guage does not go above 1/4 full.  Both problems were the result of an un-named mechanic "fixing" a wire.

In any case, I am trying to correct this and need the correct wiring diagram.  Where can I find the model # of my 1973 914 1.7L car in order to find the correct wiring diagram?  

Also, do you have any recommendations on how to go about troubleshooting this find the issue.  

I appreciate any help you can provide.

thank you


1973 914 gage lights dim

The gage lights in my 1973 914 are dim. What causes this and how can it be repaired?



What side is the ignition switch on?

vdo gauges

I have a 1975 914 and I think the oil temperature gauge is shorted out. I mistakenly put the power wire on the ground. Now the needle pegs out to max. as soon as I power it up. Do you know how to repair these or a place that would repair the VDO oil temperature gauge? This is the combo gauge in which 4 screws takes out the oil temp unit.

recently had a new three speed wiper installed on a 74 2L. Works fine with the exception that it still runs when in the parked/off position. Have to move the handle up and down until wipers will park off. While the wipers are parked I can hear the intermittent cycle clicking. Have also blown the #8 fuse twice while trying to park the wipers.
