    I'm looking for the self canceling steering column switch. Anyone have one they would like to sell or know of a source for this switch?

    The self cancelling are series 3-V.
    Positive return to centre.
    Depending how factory you want it triumphs use similar swicthes that are more easily sourced.
    Otherwise look in the UK .. Other rootes cars use them but the stalks can be different lengths or the bends can be different... But can be bent to work

    The Humber Sceptre used a type SS10 switch that appears similar to Alpine but the arm is longer and the angle is different. Also, the Humber switch was designed to be mounted directly onto the column via a bracket where the Alpine was mounted to the column cover using a pair of 'clamping plates' that sandwiched it between the halves. The switch's threads have different diameters and hardware. The Alpine has a groove cut the length of the threads for a tab on the clamping plates whereas the Humber threads are flattened on one side to match a mounting bracket to keep it from rotating.

    That said, I have both types of OD switches. PM if interested.
