Re: [T3] FW: Headlight switch

<x-flowed>The original lightswitch in my July64 T34 was a round one, not a square aluminium one. The part number was the same as the one from the seller in GY and the only difference was the rear section on the replacement was bakalite instead of metal, obviously a different supplier.
The 'early' cars used the round ones similar to an early beetle and later were the rectangular ones, I think it changed in around 65 as there were some rectangular 6v ones I think. I guess that's what you are looking for. All 12v are similar looking rectangular ones but with a different rheostat value for dimming so not really interchageable. I will recheck the part number on the original if I can find it. Rgds Chris

HHHMMM: See Chris Wright"s reply to YOU yesterday ;) Mike

Sorry Mike but after 6pm (east coast) my daughters take over the computer so I'm not able to respond until 5 am saturday morning (work). I'll try not to make that mistake again.

I saw Chris' response. I'm wondering though because the one I saw on the site was the round cylinder type and not the square box type that the early cars have. I'll have to look again, the entire web address isn't highlighted so maybe I'm looking at the wrong part.

I'd also like to order from this side of the pond. 45 euros seems like alot for this part, especially if a type one part can be used. I've seen the T1's go for $15 or about 21 euro. ;-)

Thanks again Chris
