    looking for older switches

    I was hoping someone has a few older switches laying around they would like to sell. I broke my blower switch. It`s for my 87 242LS they had the red switch.

    Or can I just buy a direct replacement for them any help would be great.

    Thanks

    Masi, any luck on the switch? What amperage is it? Those "switches" are actually circuit breakers. Might be able to dig one up. AL J.

    Alj,

    I was looking for the switch for the depth sounder. Do you have that one?

    Thank you,

    I can get the REAL ones salvage. Only a few amp ratings available though. Don't replace these with plain switches. They need to be circuit breaker switches or you have to rewire the circuit back to a breaker panel and install a separate breaker for the device. I discussed this on another thread. Not sure most folks understand the concept of a breaker switch though. It's dangerous not to reinstall breaker/switches. If you don't believe me, call Formula to get the real story. Fires in boats = BAD. Give me the amp ratings of your bad switches and I can check availability for you guys.

    Alj, would you happen to have one of these switches in the 15Amp variety? I need on to replace the blower switch. Let me know if you do. I checked with ETA and they don't make it anymore and don't have a direct replacement. Thanks.
