need help with new LM turn signal switch
Posted by: mellowyellow ()

I just bought this switch from Clarks & it seems the moving part is glued to the base. Do they come like this or did sitting on a shelf for 40 years do this? It seems like a solid join.

thanks

The joint between the semicircle part and the round part at your arrows should not be joined. Carefully pry them apart.

Are you sure that is a 40 year old switch? It looks new, like a reproduced one.

That "glue" should be grease. I just installed one from them a few weeks ago and it was a new reproduction.
I'm not sure what your bottom arrow is pointing to but the top one is like Frank said.

I meant maybe it was sitting on CLARK’S shelf for that long

Bottom arrow is about a 1/2" low on my computer screen from where it should be pointing. Hard to see, but the round part and semicircle part is there also, other end of cancelling arm.

Should use some white lube (or anything you have...) on those two spots. Factory did have grease as Joel says.

They are stiff and cant really be moved by hand out of the column or without the arm.

Install it and install the lever. Try it - it will work fine.
