So I had my buddy the electrical engineer do the soldering today. I thought he did a great job. I need to study Jim's article to see what I'm doing next.

Looks Great! Nice job soldering and keeping the wires on the inside makes installation easier.

I wonder how many revisions of the selection switch were made? Here are two versions of the wafer, one marked "1" and one marked "2". The second looks to have one larger contact. I'm using the one marked #2.

Before you use a different wafer put the two pieces on the pencil and make sure all three contacts touch and have a good electrical connection. Over the years the pieces wear in together and work fine. However when you change one of them they may not work.

I recently had one where both pieces looked great, but after much trouble shooting I pulled the switch apart and put both pieces on the pencil and pushed them together. When looking at it closely from the side you could see the one contact was not touching. A little bit of saning on the other contacts and everything worked well (at least that part did, but that's another story).

Thanks. I reused the original wafer which also was the later one.

Good thing I'm not working flat rate. Just about two hours of goofing around to get the switch back in the housing. Have not started the continuity tests on the different gear positions yet.
