Hi, I'm missing one of the screws that hold the ignition plate to the dash, does anyone know where I can buy a period correct one?
Also, the light switch operates to the left and to the right but the lights seem to function the same in either position. Is there a low and high beam? Thanks, Dave
Dave, Drive the T as close to a light colored wall as possible in the dark and try out the two light positions to see if there is any change on the wall. No telling what was installed by a previous owner. Could be single filament bulbs, or similiar elements burned out, or some of those famous repro bulbs where the filiments run vertical instead of horizontal. Also could be poor contacts in the switch. Even with clean lenses and shiny polished reflectors the headlights can be pretty minimal.
I think the screws are just standard oval head (I don't remember the size and thread), take another one out and take it to a good hardware store and you should be able to find a match.
I believe they are a 10-32, but am not sure. I'm also pretty sure they were raven finish originally. I used stainless on my car which I'm sure isn't correct, but they sure look nice! They use a square nut on the back side.
Thanks for the help, I'll try and match it up or replace all four.
