Re: [T3] '67 Ignition switch problems


> Looks like you did exactly what I did years ago... and using all the
correct materials too!
The only thing Ill add is that if your using solder in an application where
it could wear (Sliding contacts) it is very soft and will wear off quickly.

The solenoid current for the starter, about 70 amps in the 6V cars, is what
would burn out the ignition switches.  this is what you need a relay to take
instead of the ignition switch.

Nice work!  there are very few out there than can resurrect one of these...
and they are almost all bad nowadays if not rebuilt.  A nice original touch
for the early T3 is having the original ignition switch work.
