Need Info on Combination Switches

Recommended Posts

I am hoping that someone could identify the year and model that these switches pertain to.  Both were included in a bucket of parts that came with my car, and obviously have not seen much care.  They are not original for my Model 27-27.  So for the 27-27 I will need Buicks original switch, their number D-1288. If you have one or know of one, please advise on that.

Also what is the rusty screw or bolt used for?

Thanks,

Marty

Pre 1924 I believe, the rusty knob is for the dash light. 

 

Can you post pictures of the backs?

Marty, 

The top one is at least pre 1923 Buick.  No glass face and it has a  dim position labeled on the light switch.

 

I am not sure what the bottom switch came off of.     Hugh

And here is the back of the lower one.  Guess not, I am oversized on the pics.  See new post.

The other switch is a Bosch not for our Buicks. Check on the post about, Which one is correct? Full discussion on these switches.

 The earlier style Kellogg switch is very repairable. But according to the Master Parts Book from 1931 these would no longer be available. So, in 1931 if you needed a new switch for your say for your 10 year old 1921 Buick you got the newer style switch. GM by then going full force to their in-house supplier Delco-Remey. Unfortunately the Delco die cast wonders did not stand the test of time.

Part of the collection of Delco switches and components to try and build up a workable unit. At the far right is the new aluminum case from BOB"S  and switch levers. This also needs some modification to have everything go together properly. I believe that his supplier took a nearly perfect original to make his mold from. When the casting was made shrinkage for the aluminum is noticeable.

This is the front and back of the 2nd switch.  Not sure why it would be a Bosch.  It has MC in the logo.  No idea what car this came off of.     Hugh

  Hugh: 

On the photo of the 2nd in question this is what my eye was seeing. American Bosch Trademark. The somewhat evil looking face with the spade beard and goggles

Also as a radio collector I had an American Bosch console radio for over 40 years with the same logo on the dial escutcheon.

The logo is a very stylized ABMC,  American Bosch Magneto Corp.

S-125 is Hudson 

Essex are similar but also have a horn button.
