3 or 4 position light switch?

Postby Bob McCarty » Tue Apr 27, 2021 12:53 pm

Replacing the wiring on my '66 (SN 227,324). The wiring harness was mangled and an oddball light switch used. Bought a wiring harness from Brillman, but need to know whether to get a 3 or 4 position light switch. I had a switch from TM, but it uses spade connectors and the harness has eyelet connectors. I called Brillman and she gave me the choice of either a 3 or 4 position switch for 12 V application.

I'm under the (possibly mistaken) impression that all 12-volt Cub light switches has spade connectors. In any case, a '66 should have a 4-position switch (O D B R).

Keep in mind there are two styles of "four position switch". The later spade connector O D B R and then there's the early LC HC D B with screw terminals.
