Looking for parts or complete top part of this switch also screws holding it together with small inside screws holding a metal plate covering contacts from inside. This part holds a dimmer switch, which I don't have.

If nobody has parts, perhaps somebody has a complete switch for sale?

Is this what you are looking for...? I recently replaced the left-hand switch on the T140 with a new Lucas unit. I have no additional screws, sorry.

Best,
Rob

Adam,
Is this the switch you need? Wiring is different, I believe it includes the turn signals as well as two momentary contact switches.

You can purchase an aftermarket unit complete and possibly you can get lucky enough to find a good used Lucas.

Good luck,
Rob
