    Re: Dimmer and horn switch

    The aftermarket parts don't fit original switches.I have lots of OEM switches that need 1 or 2 pieces

    I found NOS parts on ebay.

    Grant,the aftermarket piece has a wider gap between contacts & a flatter pin.They suck.They don't move freely & poor contact.Are you missing that part or do you just need to unsolder them?This part is NOS with wires installed...IMG_0999.JPG

    Thanks for the responses , I was able to super glue the Innards back together and solder the wires into the block.

    Granvil, The factory replacement wires for the switches have the bakelite piece already attached to them so if you see any of that stuff listed for a WLA or such it will include the new bakelite.
