Howdy,

Some time in the last dormant stage of my restoration, I lost the spring that holds the light switch into the stamping that attaches to the headlight shell.
I don't know the Lucas number, or even the correct nomenclature.
Does anyone know a source for the spring?
Thanks, JR

You see them available on eBay occasionally. I wouldn't trust one made in India as springs I have received from that source were just plain wire bent to shape (no spring in it).

Thanks guys,

I am trying to get a $50 dollar order to Baxter, and they stock them. Their online catalog is not duffus friendly, but when I asked about them, they gave me the number.
I did just order some bullet connectors from the Bonneville shop, so Roger gets a little of my money. ;-)

I have another question, so I'll start another thread.

Thanks again
