I think I have a 38 junior switch; not sure if it is the same. I'll get a photo and post.

Here's a few poor quality illustrations from the service manuals showing some differences.

Thanks HH. I never thought of looking at the service manual

I need to find the ones I have and match them up.

Here are the two I have. See my photos below. The one on the right is the same as the one in my 39; the one on the left matches the Service and Parts manual for 38. Notice the input fuse block mounted above the switch for the 38, as opposed to behind the switch for the 39. Each could use plating on the knob, but the 38 is a bit better.

Flack/All,
Agreed. The 37 is different. I didn't see all the threads on page 2 that clarified.

Good luck with the search.
