So originally I had one of the switches that uses the center trans cover bolts to secure it. Now that my AC brakes are really shaped to the drums and I have taken up the slack, I was stepping on the brakes and slowing down but my brake light wasn't coming on - I had to push the pedal pretty far (and thus be stopping harder) before the light would come on. The pedal just has to travel a certain amount before the cam starts to actuate it out. I had the switch adjusted as close as I could to activate quickly but still actually turn off once the pedal was released. Now though I just had to get the Fun Projects switch and make my own bracket to deal with the Warford. I considered mounting the original bracket back by the ball joint, but it's just too far away from the pedal. Anyway! Still need to take this one off and smooth it out and powder coat it, but very pleased with how much better it works - barely touch the pedal and the light is on.
Oh, meant to say - I just used the bracket Mr Regan sends as a template, but moved the switch further down to clear my really low speedster floorboards and the mechanical linkage for my AC brakes.
Sorry, I just looked and realized the pictures kind of suck. I thought I just had a little greasy smear on my glasses, but turns out it was just the pics. I hate putting up bad photos, but you get the idea.
Blowing them up a bit helps. (Photo size wise that is.)
Have to second what Seth said about the F.P. brake switch...it's great. And yes, with just a little adjusting you can have a brake light with very little pedal push...just what I like to start to warn the idiots behind me to "back off"!! without necessarily grinding the brake band. I even have a spare one on the shelf for when one of the other type goes, I'm ready to replace it with no down time.
The instructions with mine said to wire it to the most passenger side connector on the terminal block. Works great, especially with the ignition off and the parking brake on. Moved it to the ignition ON side of the ignition switch and all is well
I modified the FP bracket to fit by cutting out a notch and welding in a piece of reinforcement.
I was gonna do the same thing John, but I needed the switch to sit lower so the spring would clear my AC brake linkage.
