    How to convert 73 turn signal switch for 69?

    The 69 switch is no longer available new. there are some significant wire differences between a 69 and a 73 combo switch. who has done the conversion and what did you do?

    I recently bought a original (used) switch on eBay that, after receiving, did not match the circuit diagram for my '73S. Seller was good enough to take it back. Looking at the wiring diagrams in the maintenance manuals, I identified it as a '69 switch. That particular switch is back for sale

    I believe one could take a 73 and turn it into a 69. It requires unsoldering half the connections though. And if you are a real stickler for detail, the wire colours are different between 69 and 73 as well. Probably better easier to buy the '69 and sell your 73.
