C-101 ignition switch cleanup

Recommended Posts

 

Good post!

I do them all the time and always have spare cleaned switches to replace one quickly if needed, then clean up the replaced one when there's an opportunity to do it. 

Same thing with solenoids. Both are fairly simple to take a part and clean, Just replace the rivets with screws to reassemble the solenoid.

 

It's a good way to have spares handy.

:text-yeahthat:I took one of those 70 amp flavors apart once just because enquiring minds want to know. It would have took abit to save but I could have if I didn't have 3 new ones from the BS on the shelf. :)

Not all are able to be saved.   The internal rivets come apart, the plastic  does fail,   parts wear down .

 

But a good primer on rebuilding a switch.

Unrelated but the same scenario happens with cheap Chinese electric tools when the inside of the switch fills up with fine sawdust particles. They end up in the landfill, I have brought so many home fixed and given most away.
