Clockwork Indicator and Hot rod

I am wanting to know what is a clockwork indicator that was used in the old days of traditional hot rods. A description and/or picture would be great. From all reports these were self cancelling based on time/ duration.

Thanks

With over 30 views and not a single response ... I think we may have a failure to communicate here. I understand you are from Australia and may be using a different term for what you what to know.

" Clockwork Indicator "

Could it be one of these ???

I suppose the Australians use the term "indicator" as do the British for turn signal.

OK ... that's reasonable

On a good many of the older vehicles I have owned ... they had something like this.



Found on eBay

Clockwork turn signal switch

Correct Australia indicator switch = turn signal switch.
Example provided is brilliant. However, pictures of steering column in my car do not show any fixtures/fittings to the column. I gather it is a switch that is dash mounted.

Any further examples would be greatly appreciated.

cheers
