Hi all

10/74 HJ 1 Tonner, appears to be a bit of a bitza !

Chasing a replacement kickdown switch that mounts onto the accelerator pedal.

Not looking for the "detent" type, its the earlier ?? type that looks like a brake light switch

Cannot find a new one online anywhere Shhh

Thanks in advance

Can you get a photo of it? Most auto HQ-HZ and LH-LX should have the same switch from memory.

No, the HQ-HJ have a kickdown switch which looks like a brake light switch, while the HX-WB have a 'slider' type switch the same as early Commodores.

HQ-HJ see here: https://www.ebay.com.au/...stomid=&toolid=10050

HX-WB see here: https://www.holdspares.c...r-cable-pedal-kickdown-s

I find that the later switch is more reliable & easier to adjust.

If at first you don't succeed, just call it Version 1.0

Yes that’s right, I remember now. My 1976 HJ had the slide type, it was a 4.2 auto Kingswood ute. All my HQ’s were manual except the Deville and it had that button type.

A Tridon Reverse Light Switch TRS022, with 2 thin 12mm * 1.5 locknuts works a treat

A Commodore cruise control switch is the correct thread & has both NO & NC contacts & does the job but is all plastic & looks a bit shit
