Cord Head Light Switch was created by 1748 S
This is the auburn Cord head light switch contact piece in many switches of the vintage. Can ANYONE tell me what the brown material is named? It appears to be a non conductive resin impregnated fiber board. Its 3/32 inch thick. I am trying to repair this switch. Mcmaster Carr sells the brass and copper rivets and a non arcing fiber board but am not sure I know if it correct. There part number is 8549K43. Thanks for any help.

Also, time to add a few extra wires into your harness and put a relay into system - perhaps hide it under dash if you are doing a high point car. You can find original switches on ebay - they fit some other cars of 30's albeit take minor adaption - and a good anything in one will probably be over $100.00
