Good idea about swapping the switches to test them.
It's been around...on some Web sites in tech discussions.
I found out about the Borg-Warner S800 switches from Larry Cramer, SVOOA in
Michigan; and Jeff Smith, SVOOA in Texas.
So I put it up at: http://www.mustangsvo.org/tech.htm some months ago.
One switch fits all SVO, Turbo Coupe, Escort, etc. using that style switch
from Ford...which are now all obsolete.
The Borg-Warner unit comes only one way...it has a plain black faceplate,
and on the rocker part itself it has in white letters "ON" and/or "OFF" (I
forget) and those white letters can be rubbed-off. The amber light is
exactly as factory. The faceplates are thin aluminum and can be carefully
removed and switched with your factory faceplates.
It's a simple swap. Nobody stocks them, so you have to order them. But
since my last voltage regulator I got from Pep Boys was a Borg-Warner,
maybe they can order it. Most smaller shops will order things without
problem. I have a couple extras that Monty wants because he's too lazy to
List price is about $22.
