our ignition switch fell apart
My son and I have a 66 coupe (200 straight 6). Literally the day we got the car legal, the ignition swith separated from the lock cylinder and fell off behind the dash. What I'm left with is the back of the switch (with all the wires attached), a plastic piece that the cylinder connects to, and two springs.
By the way my switch doesn't look exactly like the diagram at the top of this forum - clearly ours is original.
one of the springs is long and thin and I think it is somehow used to cause the switch to spring back after the car starts. The other is short and fatter, and I think it somehow goes between the plastic piece and the back of the switch. What I can't figure out is how to get it back together, and if I do, will it hold, or should I just buy a new switch?
