Wanted CLUM 9271 headlight switch


Recommended Posts

Clean that old cruddy paint off your switch, then carefully open the switch by prying up just 2 of the tabs holding it together and just clean it out. They are pretty simple inside.

 I found a pair of wire cutters work well for prying the tabs up to open these switches and a small hammer to bend them back once finished.

This is Dale from Mopar Heaven I have a working switch like you need on the bottom of a 32 Plymouth stearing col. if you don’t find something I would ask that you make mine a last resort.Iam not real excited about letting it go. I see where your bakilight board has been broken and repaired.

Hi JimmyS,

 I finally found the clum switch I have, lying in my garage. It looks identical to your one, is used, it does turn, has some surface rust and will need stripping and cleaning. The bakelite looks in good shape.

 The main round part of the body is 1&5/8in diameter, the hole for the rod to go through is approx 1/4in. There are numbers around the body opposite each terminal, these reading from left to right are 1 3 2 4 6 5. I can find no other numbers on the switch.

 Please let me know if this is the same as yours.

If so then PM me your name, email and postal address and I will send you some pictures and get a postal cost to send it to you. Guys in USA and New Zealand have been very good to me in the past and have given me stuff for free, provided I paid the shipping. I am happy to give it to you on the same basis, that once you receive the switch, you will reimburse me my postal costs.

 Let me know

 Best regards

Viv.

Look on the flat tab for the CLUM number....

Hi,

 I have really cleaned it tonight, it is very rusty right where it says clum and the number is very hard to read. It could be 3881,  the first and third numbers could be either a 3 or an 8 as they are  corroded.

 I have now opened the switch and can confirm the inside is different from the one JimmyS is looking for, so probably will not work.

sorry for getting his hopes up.

 I will take some pictures tomorrow and post them, to see if anyone can positively ID my one,

Viv.

I don't see a 3881 in my books.

I am attempting to rebuild my clum 8891.

I am using a dense polyester produce I gone from Mcmasters. The attached catalog picture shows my clum and appears to match shown here.
