The upper rebound rubber looks a little long.

That's a possibility.. I would be concerned about the switch popping out .someone turns key hard.

But I guess the tab could be made a bit dapper.

The top ear was bent out. I put it in a vise. It moved in but fell off.

If I do it again. I'm going to use a dowel inside bezel. To hold some brass shim stock. Solder to that.

There is some clearance on inside. With the glob on top I was able to get bezel in and out of dash.

I'm sure a weaker spring can be found

After trying epoxy.

When to solder. And since lead is out of solder now.

I did it before.. In the 70s.

It's strong. I would of liked to get more on inside.

Put match marks on the rotor. For up.. So they go back the same way.

Once key for rotor is out .. The shaft taps out.


A magnet helps pull them up.


Under the rotor is the seal.

Steward.

There is nothing to them. 0 rings ..seal. And a bearing..

One of the easiest to deal with. A kit from max has what you need.

Grip.

Only 1 screw holds plate.

Grip..

The wires should come from the right.

So. Wires are silicone. Flexible. But . leave cap off till wires are connected. Cause you'll need to make sure they don't rub

My plan is to put diode on hot wire. With possible capacitor.

Because there is still going to be a chance for a spike with the relay contacts.

And a capacitor across those points might help.

Not going to remove ballast resistor ..

Going to hook this up. So ign switch flips relay and power igniter .12v. Thru relay .

Still thinking where to get 12v for igniter. And add diode.

Could do it all from ignition side of ballast. Which would be off when key is off.
