1934 PE headlight switch

Recommended Posts

The headlight switch in my car is very hard to turn.  The switch is also always loose.  Are they rebuildable and am I missing something here?10AED90A-0EE7-41B4-8328-ACE35BFBE8A9.thumb.jpeg.565080495464fa3fa104fe073805300e.jpeg

If the issue is the handle being wobbly it may be missing the little metal tang  which the set screw pushes against the headlight switch shaft.

 

May be a little hard to see in pic I copied from Ebay site but bottom edge has a little metal tang or flap imbedded.

Easy enough for it to break off over time.

I think that’s the problem.  I wonder if there is something I can stick inside for now.  Like a thin piece of shin stock to kind of do the same thing

Thanks for the help.  Maybe I will try and get the bent screw out and put a shim in there for now till I can find another knob.
