[T3] Ignition replacement

I'm hoping to avoid the problem, having installed a relay in the starter solenoid circuit decades ago to overcome the 'non-starting after a long run' syndrome.  If not, I seem to have a few spares, having parted out three other '71s, two being within 1000 chassis numbers of my Elm green Variant.
That was handy when the hazzard relay fell apart and left me without flashers (not the car's fault, as it had been damaged by a mechanic when checking the car for its MoT some years ago, and I'd had to open it and recrimp it).
Having a few spares is a great help.

It's great that Jim took the time to design and put together an ignition
switch "fix" for anyone with a '71 Type 3. And to get all the components you
need, along with detailed instructions; this kit is a bargain at only $95.
Of course Jim will make a small profit from his work in putting this kit
together, but it's a small profit compared to the work he put into designing
and assembling this kit.

The biggest problem with his kit is people with '71 type 3's not knowing
their ignition switch is going to fail at some point. This kit needs to be
installed BEFORE your ignition switch fails, so if you know of any '71 Type
3 owners out there; do them a favor and put them in touch with Jim!
