  • Recommendations needed for light switch

    I brought my "new" 29 Tudor home Friday. A frame off restoration in 95 that was never finished. Its missing the horn/light rod, light switch and wiring loom. I've seen warnings about imported switch bodies. Who offers the best deal on a US made part? The car has the 7 tooth steering.

      Light switch interference

Does not move from off with additional turns though. Thinking there is some kind of bushing of something that may just need lubrication. Is there any adjustment here, of should I just try to get some light oil around the...

      WHAT DO MOST DO? Bit of a debate with the Bailing Wire that holds the Light Switch at the bottom of the Steering Column. Is the Bailing wire installed in the hole of the Switch OR JUST belowthe hole?

      Most Agravating Thing to Work on On the Model A
      by Chevmn56
      Hey Guys I know i dont have the experience or knowledge that you guys have, but man i will say that i think the Model A light switch has been the worst to work on. After messing with the dam thing for 4hrs (im not a quitter) i finally gave up and called Berts. Steve took about 5 minutes to straighten me out and get me on the right road, i felt like a complete bone head.

      In trying to install...

      Supposed to be or just a result of being 90 years old?
