Wow!

Got a bunch of replies real quick! I think I have enough info to work on
and will be heading to the local parts stores this evening.

Thanks again!

Did any of them CC the list? I did not see any other replies, and I would be
curious what to look for.

Andy Mace sent me the info of off the Spitfire website and I took that
information and the info provided by other responders to three different
parts stores (Napa, Autozone & O'Reilly's).

Napa didn't have any of them that I listed saying they couldn't even order
them. Same story with Autozone. I then went to O'Reilly's and they
couldn't get the spitfire one but they had one (only one) instock for a
Chevy Luv. It appears to be a direct bolt in replacement. I'll find out
tonight.

I found it odd that no one seemed to be able to order these switches. Even
O'Reilly's said they couldn't order the Chevy Luv switch, they just happened
to have one in stock
Thanks everyone for the replies.

Brad

If memory serves me correctly, I just used a GM switch, whatever they had,
and it worked fine. I think I spec'ed it for an 83 GMC truck, but I may be
mistaken. Have them pull one and compare to the old one. They are all
pretty much the same.
