Lucas 169SA Handlebar Light Switches 1971-2

Can anyone tell me which switch goes on the right. They both look very similar. They were not fitted to the bike when I bought it. One has five wires, the other six. Thanks.

The factory put the indicator switch on the right and the dip switch on the left. If you prefer it the other way there's no reason not to.
They do look the same as they used the same castings. The indicator lever goes both up an down and has green/white and green/red wires among others attached. The Dip switch only goes one way and has the blue, blue/white and blue/red wires plus purple/black for the horn attached.
Hope this helps
Chris

Appreciated Chris. I have the whole loom on the dinner table, great fun ( apart from wife's comments ). Do love a restoration.  ;D
