  • Switch removal tool

    Okay this is a stupid question. But I dont want to damage my cool switches on my 56 hawk. Does anyone know have a KD tool # or something for a tool to remove my toggle switches without damaging the retainer nut?
    Thanks Brian

    Not aware of a special removal tool; I didn't worry about being real
    careful when I took mine off since they were kinda rough anyway. I do know that you can buy new chrome retaining nuts though, if yours
    get messed up during removal.

      Most of the guys, me included, make their own tool out of a piece of pipe by grinding the end down to where you have two tangs to fit in the notches of the ring on the switch. I welded a T handle on the end to have something to hold on to. There is no tool commercially available that I am aware of.

        Good seller, fast shipping! Has flats on the end for an open-end wrench. Fits the nut perfectly. Comes in two sizes for Studes. Recommended!

            You can use E or C ring pliers with the tips bent 90 degrees. They come that way.

              Thanks Bob
              Used your previous thread for info and got my answer.
              From your link I just bought the tool on eBay.
              Studebaker Forum sure works for info , if you are not afraid to ask!

                I bought one of those tools from that vendor. Works a charm.
