Yeah, I was just thinking about the "old days" when one antifreeze was used for every thing and all you had to do was grab a jug without looking to see what color it was.

Longer does create a longer lever. But “excessive frame leverage” seems a bit over the top for 2.38”.

Have you looked at 5th Airborne to see if they have one the proper length?

Now that is a head scratcher. A switch that doesn’t move. And has a single wire on it. :confused:
