Hello, Has anyone reproduced the switch levers found on the Auto-Lite #XA361 switch used on 27 & 28 Essex cars? I need a pair of levers or a complete switch.
Thank you for any leads,
Thank you! Great find, the switch levers are now ordered, in stock & soon to be on the way.
They are polished stainless steel so they will look like they are nickel plated but will be very strong.

Thank you for the heads up on the spring pressure. My switch has one good (almost) handle & the other has bloated up & seized in the body of the switch. The lever is broken off from someone trying to turn it. Die cast metal does not do well in our Canadian climate possibly due to humidity & great temperature extremes.
The new levers arrived from Au. & they are very good. A tiny bit smaller due to shrinkage in the castings & a slight bit of fitting needed to fit the smaller drive lug but not a problem. Being polished cast stainless steel they should be very strong & they look like they are nickel plated.
The spring pressure seemed about right - my springs may have lost a little tension over 90 years.
