    I suspect that if you take the switch apart you will find lots of "grunge" in there, clean it, polish the contacts and reassemble.

    I foolishly did not check the switch before reassembly (I had swapped in a Hawk column in my 53) and ended up removing the switch to disassemble, clean and reassemble. Note, if it was rocket science, I'd not be able to do it

    I initially disassembled the switch as you see in the picture. It turned out that it was much easier to do it on the bench. You have to have patience to thread the wires back down through the conduit in the coumn.

    If home repair works then you saved $80? and if not.........well I think they were for sale, maybe marked down? in the flyer I got from Studebaker International a few days ago

      I took the switch apart when I restored the car 6 years ago because you were exactly right, lots of grunge in there. I cleaned it then and it was tricky and took quite a bit of patience. I did not think the tabs used to hold the assembly would survive bending them open and closed one more time so I was able to locate a NOS one from one of our vendors the switch is installed and its working like new.

        I have a few "used" directional switches for early & late Larks (Hawks too?) out of 63' Cruisers. Any takers @ $10. each ?

          Do you know the part number? I would be interested in a good spare if it is the right number. They aren't real thick on the ground anymore.

            The T/S Switches Jack B. has from '63 Larks, would be for: '61 to '66 ALL, and '61 to '64 (6E-8E) Champ Trucks, all the same, you don't need no stink'n Part Number! So No fit on a '59.

              Sorry if that came to you wrong StudeRich. I obviously don't know as much as you do so I had to ask for a part number so I could verify it with my chassis manual.
              I quoted jackb and obviously was not referencing you. I don't care for the way you budd in with information that I was not asking for. It's not really helpful.
