    49 WL stop lamp switch mounting help

    I've looked in Palmer's books and searched the forum and can't find a diagram or photo on how the stop lamp switch goes together and mounts on my '49 WL. Could one of you's guys with a WL be so kind to please take a photo or two of your stop lamp switch and post it here? It would be greatly appreciated.

    Be aware that you are seeing two separate spring in that shot, the larger in the background is the brake pedal spring, superimposed on it is the smaller brake light switch spring connected to the pull wire which is connected directly to the pedal.

    I will also note that the switch itself needs to be rotated down a couple of degrees, not in line with the brake rod. Inline the rod will hit the switch, good luck.
