OK chaps and chapesses, what's the consensus, long stemmed indicators at the front and short at the back or vice versa?
What's the correct combination for a Mk IIA Interstate 1974, any ideas?

My 1974 Interstate Mk2A has short at the front - long at the back (I don't think short at the rear would clear the rear number plate properly).

All Commandos had long indicator stems for front and rear. The short stem indicators were only ever used on triumph rears where they were fitted onto the grabrail. I think Commandos look better with the short, Triumph ones at the front and the normal ones on the rear. Les Emery

Well as it happens Les, I purchased some SS stems from NorVil (via Kate) a few years ago, two short and two long, so I could replace the genuine ‘Lord Lucas Prince of Darkness’ peeling chrome ones, but had ‘misplaced’ the SS parts. Well they came to light after a monster shed clear out, so I thought I would fit them, but all the original ones are long front and back, which I now know with everyone’s professional assistance to be correct.
However, as discussed, the short ones will now live on the front and long on the back. The local plates are a bit smaller that the UK, it is very unlikely they would clear the South Australian plate properly and if they did it would look pretty average.
Thanks for your inputs and have a good weekend.
