Stoplight Switch Rebuild
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away

I recently replaced the stoplight switch (see attached pictures) to my 56 Clipper. The replacement switch got the leveling system working again. Can this switch be rebuilt? If so, does someone have a recommendation on where I can get a rebuilt kit and/or a technical exploded drawing?

The switches are sealed assys and considered throwaway even back then. In place of the NOS type switch with 3 terminals which are still around but getting rare and expensive you can buy the modern replacement kit which uses an inexpensive easily found 2 terminal switch and adds a relay to provide the TL power disconnect function. There is another 3 terminal switch used on some VW models that is often found at local parts stores. According to some who have bought them, in addition to requiring new terminals on the wires those switches do not seem to enjoy a very long life so maybe not the first choice.
