Part works fantastically

Did this item work well with your project? What vehicle type are you using this for?

My TR8 EFI switch had been cut in several places by a previous owner. I found this replacement and it has stopped the electrical issues I was fighting. It is a great replacement for the TR8 EFI if you need one.

Looks well made.

Did this item work well with your project? What vehicle type are you using this for?

I used it on a 79 TR7. The plug end was too tight, I had to trim the ridges off it and still had a hard time getting it together. Once I did though it worked fine.

A perfect LHD 8 wire ignition switch

Did this item work well with your project? What vehicle type are you using this for?

This was used on several US spec vehicles. In my case, it was needed for my 1980 Triumph TR7. After several years, the back of the ignition switch becomes brittle and breaks apart, causing the car to not start or run properly. Because it is hidden in the steering column, you would never know that this is the cause. The previous owner of my car replaced a perfectly good starter motor with an upgraded gear reduction starter, and converted the car to an electronic distributor and never got it to start on its own. Because of this, the TR7 sat in storage for over 20 years. When I bought the car, the ignition switch was the first place I looked because it’s British Leyland! A little hot glue and electrical tape solved the problem temporarily, but I needed to replace the switch. Funny thing, most British parts suppliers in America don’t carry the US spec ignition switch, and those that do are asking outrageous prices for new old stock ones with potentially brittle connectors or used ones with the same problem. When in doubt, turn to Rimmer Brothers! This part is new and has the additional connectors used for the key-in buzzer as well as the FASD heating element and anti run-on device for the Zenith Stromberg carburetors, among other things. Cars that are not modified Really need the 8 wire switch for originality and proper operation. I recommend using the 8 wire switch even if you have heavily modified your car. Someday someone may want to return it to it’s original factory stock condition, which is difficult if the wiring is cut up or incorrect. Also of note, if you have an aftermarket electronic distributor kit, I recommended attaching the connector to this part rather than further up the line for easy access if anything needs repair. It’s been a long way back for my TR7, but luckily most of it has been cosmetic. This is the one major component I kept putting off because the temporary fix was working still. With it now repaired, I have to worry about other things that might go wrong when we go for a long drive!
