falcon ignition switch

Post #1 by iceman » Thu May 05, 2011 9:22 am

about 10 years ago I took my falcon apart for restoration. in the process i lost the ignition switch and bezel. I ordered new parts from carpenter to replace the old ones. my problem is when I put the ignition in the dash the bezel remains loose and can be pulled part way out of the dash. i cant find any other parts to install the switch such as a spacer from the jobber houses so I am assuming that I am missing the boat and am doing something wrong. can someone give me some idea as to how to assemble this properly or tell me what i am doing wrong. thanks

The Mustang has a cup shaped spacer behind the dash panel, between it and the actual switch mechanism. It is maybe an inch deep and there is a spring that holds the whole array tightly in place. Something like that? Mmmmm - junkyard.

I saw a spacer for 1964/65 thats what gives me the idea that I am missing something but there is none listed for 60/63.
