I am looking for an early Morris Lucas horn/indicator switch (see photo below). Needs to be in good working condition.
The orange lens on top need not be there as I can use the lens from my current switch. My current switch does not function all the time.

Please send me a message with a photo and price you are asking.

Hi Jessica,

What about taking the original one apart and cleaning the contacts and maybe reworking the spring material that makes contact. Your switch might be fine with a little work. Unless you get a new replacement you may be in a similar place with any used setup that you find.
This is just me thinking outside of the box. good luck.

Yes, one of the benefits of older tech and metal parts, they can be repaired or at least tweaked to work better again. They do show up on ebay once in a while.

Thanks for the reply Chris, Jim and Mike.

Chris, I had thought about taking the switch apart to see what is the problem. When I get my van out of winter slumber I will do just that.

Jim, I whole heartedly agree with you.

Mike, I have gone to ESM and Bull Motif and both have the switch but “out of stock” now for a few years. That is why I was sort of looking for a good used one.

All in all I will try to clean up and tweak the switch I have.

Thanks a bunch guys.

Hay - Jessica Z.

Vigil here -

What is wrong with your switch that is not working all the time.
Try cleaning the cooper strip if it is not broken. - then the horn stops too.
If it is let me know i may have the part in one of my spare not working units.
I buy um up when even there is one on Ebay - There getting expensive these days.
If i have the part you need i will give it to you.for postage.
I can not help you with a whole working unit. - sorry
Let me know - you have my email address.
I only come here once a month.

Hi Vigil,

My van is still in winter slumber. When pudgy wakes up I will take the switch apart and do what you suggest.

You are so kind ton offer switch parts if I cannot get mine to function correctly.

I will be in contact. Thank you.

Jessica Z.
