Default Light Switch

An update on earlier posts I made on my lights and horn working intermittentlly. I tried numerous fixes but the one that fixed both issues was to grind the collar of the upper light switch body down 1/8 in. The collar was longer when compared to other collars I measured. This change allowed the spider to move further into the light switch disk so it now rotates properly and also brought the horn contacts together within the light switch body. Really nice to be able to sound the Ahooga horn again for the kids and people asking as I go by.
