    Picture of mounting for brake light switch on a 37 WL?? Can anyone help?

    I'm trying to figure out how/where to mount the brake light switch on a 37WL. I have the switch (repop) and a mounting bracket but it doesn't seem like I have the right bracket, unless I'm looking at it wrong. Where does it mount exactly?

    THANKS!

    That picture shows a '39 and later switch.

    That picture shows a '39 and later switch. Do you have a repop of the early switch? The correct '37 type? It mounts to the fender to battery box bracket at the rear and the top battery box mount in the front. You need the pull for the rod as well for the chain to attach.

    I see that Jerry changed his picture after he realized he hadn't shown the correct type. The L shaped bracket attaches at the right rear lower battery box tab once it is in place the top mount becomes self explanatory. It sits high to clear the clutch arm.

    Thanks for posting those pics, that is correct mounting. Pull on the brake rod is wrong type though, so should not be copied to be correct.
