Clive;

What's a "Repeater Motor"? I'm guessing it is a quaint British term for the circuit element which provides the Blinking action (which I'd call a Blinker Element or Blinker Relay, but which I might imagine probably came from a motor turning a contact to make the repeating circuit ON-OFF action, from a loooooong time ago), then I have learned something new today (...and I can check that box on my daily calendar).

If this element is buzzing when you select Directional Indicators, it means something less than full current is flowing, either because of internal fault of the element or (entirely likely in an 1800 with that Lucas automotive aberration FuseBlock), circuit is not getting full voltage due to a drop along the way. Before replacing element, I suggest you first check Ignition voltage at the B (power) terminal of element to assure it is getting full voltage...it should be more than 12 volts...if not, check term 54 of Ign Sw, then back at Ign Power Fuse.

This 1800 Wiring Diagram excerpt of just Directional Indicators should help (part of a future SW-EM tech article):

Clive;

Thanks for that! I always try to help, and I'm always willing to learn...especially about the quaint differences in our common language...have you heard the saying: England and the US are two countries divided by a common language.

See completed article on Blinker Elements / Repeater Motors: http://www.sw-em.com/Blinker_Relay_or_Element.htm

Cheers
