I recall that there is a double secret bulb not illustrated on
the ETKA/ microfiche. It is burried at the top of the text 
with the key "  -  " meaning "Don't try to find me on
an illustration cause I'm not there".

There also was a double secret tech bulletin a couple of

can't be done except  HL Switch & Flasher switch).
Parts people aren't supposed to see tech bulletins, but I

The part number that comes to mind is 8A0-919-062 don't
