Just a quick one so to speak.
Gave the ignition switch a clean and repaint.
Out with smaller JIS screwdrivers, clean and strip
The contact assembly was fun to do and glad i remembered my dad's advice, "if you strip anything unknown and may have springs and small bits in always take it apart in a box"
sure enough BOING when the assembly was removed the small springs made a good bid to escape but were caught in the box Phew!!
Cleaned switch body masked and a light and then medium coat of satin black, next day 2 wet coats of satin lacquer.
switch assembly carefully assembled and greased, connections cleaned greased and tested in all modes, even the stearing lock works smoother now.
Possibly clocks (gauges for our cousins over the pond) next.
