    Several reasons-

    1) Original parts are better quality than most repros. I know I can get an original motorcraft part for about £50 and I might do that if I canít fix the original one.

    2) I donít like putting stuff in landfill if I can avoid it. Half of our environmental problems...

    Thanks JCMaunder - I did find that article last night and itís the only one Iíve found that shows how the switch works.

    it looks like I can take the switch apart and check resistances across the various contacts and then I will clean the contacts and see if it makes any difference. ...

    Hi Mixster - yes I read your thread and it sounds like you made some good improvements.

    While I don't need to keep my car 100% stock, I really want to maintain the character of the car 'as-built', or at least with only 'day-two' period correct modifications. It only ever gets mild to moderate...

    Ok I think I'll pull the old switch out and have a look at it to see if it can be repaired in some way and if not I'll just replace it.

    I have read that there are contact points somewhere in the switch assembly that open when they get too warm. If this is the case it might just be a problem...

    It seems to happen only when the high beams are on, not with just dipped beam so I suspect itís a current draw issue. So itís almost certainly the switch.

    I can replace it, but Iíd rather repair it if possible but I canít find any information about this on the internet.

    Iím running sealed beam units. Iím trying to keep the car as original as is practical so adding relays and non-standard wiring would not be my first choice.

    Having researched this a bit further Iím surprised no-one has come up with a way to repair the old light switch if itís just the...

    Headlight flickering

    I noticed at the weekend that when on high beam my headlights were flickering on and off. This was not a high-frequency flicker like with a loose connection, but more like random flashing. Also, it didn't seem to happen when on dipped beam (although I didn't get a chance to test this again).

    Full suspension bush renewal

    I'm planning to refresh all the rubber bushes throughout the front and rear suspension of my '67. I have access to good workshop facilities so doing the work won't be a problem. However, I have some questions that I hope others who have done this job will be able to help with.

    Firstly,...
