I usually feed two at a time and pull another string in at the same time. Also have a spare string in there on the side just incase the string slips off the wires as you are pulling them.

Well, that was quite a pain in the rear end but I have my switch out. I could only get the snap ring to move 20 degrees either way and could not get the opening over to the slot. I finally gave up and gave it to my buddy Mike Lavalle of KES who is more skilled and has better tools. It took him about an hour. The switch was wrapped in electrical tape which he carefully pulled out which allowed him more clearance to rotate the ring.

Examining my switch (see pictures) I see no cracks or breaks just horrible solder work. There is grease on the end contacts and I'm not sure if they was causing issues. I have a new replacement switch but may reuse this one. Thoughts?

Hi Al, From the photos the switch looks good. Clean all the grease off of it, unsolder the wires and inspect it closely. Check the contacts, I have seen some with holes worn in them from all the shifting. I am just finishing up my next article on putting this switch back together and testing it. If you send me your email I will forward you a copy so you can see if I missed anything and hopefully give you some tips to get it back together..

Glad you got it apart. Nothing looks bad but do as Jim suggested. I hope you can replace the difficult to remove snap ring. No better time than now. No telling how many times you may have to open this switch again.Hopefully you never have too.

Thanks Guys. Jim - sent you a private message with my email. Also, I believe Mike Brady told me that I can get snap rings from Stan Gillialand? I'll look for my roster today and find his contact info. No way I'm putting that round ring back in there. I almost took a hack saw to the housing I was so annoyed with it.

Still waiting for RI wiring to ship the new full length harness.
