Series IIA turn signsl switch source

'm helping my buddy do a full rewire of his Series IIA, and the turn signal switch is shot. Could use a lead on one avail. He tried getting ahold of awise Owl but no response.

Also trying to figure out where the brake switch for stop kamps is. Looked all over pedal box and didn't see anything. This is a single valve master cylinder.

Try Ike for the turn signal switch. Pangolin 4x4. It's gonna cost, painfully I'm afraid.
Brake light switch is on a 4 way junction on the right frame rail (left hand drive, that is)

^THIS. My lever in the series was on its last leg for years and I kept JB Welding it. Finally let go and ordered one from Ike in January. $27 shipped, which I think was like $19 + $8 shipping...not as bad as you'd think! Also, if your turn signal wheel is in bad shape get one from him too...it's like $4. Thanks to both these parts my turn signal self cancels in the Series which is nice!

The brake light switch is a plunger style, located right on top of the brake booster (at least in my '71 IIA). Save yourself some trouble...ONLY get a replacement from RN. I hate to say it, but I went through 6 switches from other "usual suspects" before going to RN. Theirs is more similar to the original style, and in this case makes a difference. Ironically had this exact conversation with bcourtney this past week when I bumped into him and he was literally having the exact same issue (on his 4th or 5th, likewise told him to get it from RN and be done with it).

That is correct. If you can wait until I get home later today I can probably: a) take a pic of it, b) pull up the invoice with the exact part number.

The 5 way connector is where the brake light switch is. Careful as the connector is spendy and hard to find (when I needed one I found it as Moss which is for british cars).

Are you using a factory harness or painless/EZ wiring? I ask because I am almost done rewiring mine with an EZ wiring harness, so if you have some questions I am more than happy to help.

Depending on the truck, as has been stated, the brake switch is either mechanical (brake pedal tower) or hydraulic (brake junction on the left side). I converted mine from single circuit to dual circuit power and decided to retain the hydraulic switch based on all of the negative feedback regarding the mechanical switches.

Turn signal X3 - Ike is the guy to talk to. I believe he has some NOS Tex-Magna Lite switches available. I also rehabbed my switch with one of his cancelling wheels...well worth the $10 for the new rubber.
