looking to replace the dash panel ignition switches on my khk 56. a fellow on ebay had his buddy make some switches that according to the description would work for this application. i'm posting the following description from the ebay auction from a couple of week ago:
Item number: 220383339106 / you can still view this item under the "completed" item listings.
A set of custom made K Model and Early Sportster (57 and 58) replacement light and ignition switches to replace the nearly impossible to find Briggs and Stratten originals manufactured only for over Harley 50 years ago. An automotive electrical restoration specialist friend selected a suitable replacement switch based on fit (size) and function and fabricated the left and right brackets and I have a spare set. Although the originals had three terminals, they, according to the wiring diagram were basically a power in and power out, so these two terminal replacements are functionally acceptable.[/b]
my question is this...on page 266 of the vol 4 j&p vintage catalog, there are sportster switches for around sixteen bucks$$$$$. would these work for my application? they look very similar to the ones that were fashioned by the ebay fellow. the ebay switches went for $138.
